Ouseburn won their first ever Nidderdale League title on Saturday, the two points picked up from a rained-off draw with title rivals Pannal enough to hand them the crown.

The side have stormed the division this season, losing just twice in their quest for honours.

All-rounder Olie Uffindall said their title is testament to a consistent team performance, week in week out.

“It’s been a great season,” he said.

“Winning it with two games to go is a great achievement.

“I think the way we’ve bowled this year has really been the key, we’ve got four bowlers who have taken 30 or more wickets this season.

“We’ve also got four or five batsmen who have scored a lot of runs so overall it’s just been a real team achievement.”

Having been virtually unstoppable all summer, it’s also the first time Ouseburn have finished above fourth in the league.

“It’s great for the club, we’re a young set of lads who all get on and that shows on the field,” added Uffindall.

“We’ve got all bases covered; Jamie Bryant’s batting and bowling has been superb, Chris Morrisson’s bowling has been fantastic and Sam Dale can win games on his own.

“Then there’s the Parker brothers who can turn games around.

“We had one calamity against Goldsborough but overall it’s been great.

“I’m happy here and hopefully we’ll come back next year and look at winning back to back titles.”
