HARROGATE revisit the scene of Saturday’s Yorkshire League mauling on Sunday eager for revenge against their hosts.
Ryan Bradshaw’s troops make the trek to Scarborough for their ECB Yorkshire League Cup clash just eight days after a comprehensive seven-wicket loss at North Marine Road.
Only Adam Pryor (30) troubled the scorers as ‘Gate were skittled for 117.
Yorkshire batsman Adam Lyth (28) got going in reply before Joe Padmore (44no) saw them through comfortably.
‘Gate again have two games over the weekend.
First it’s the league tomorrow with a tough trip to Cleethorpes on the cards.
“We batted very poorly again which was a shame,” said Bradshaw on Saturday’s performance.
“The week before we batted brilliantly against Driffield. 120 first on that wicket was never going to be enough.”
As for Cleethorpes he added: “They’ve struggled in the past but this year they’re near the top of the league.
“It’s not going to be an easy game.
“They had Peter Fulton last year, he’s a test player.
“He hasn’t returned but they have got a Sri Lankan bowler who has been taking a few wickets for them.
“There’s the Osmond brothers who are key to their team and Andy Ellis bowls a bit.
“But we’ve got to concentrate on our own performance.
“They’ve been more consistent than us this season, we’ve been inconsistent and that’s something we have to work on.”
Adam Pryor and James Tattersall are missing tomorrow’s fixture.
In-form second teamer Ross Sedgley will make the jump up.
“Ross comes in on the back of two consecutive hundreds for the second team,” added Bradshaw.
“He will bat at three.
“We’re hoping he can make it three in a row.”
On Sunday Rob Stanworth replaces Sam Biker with Jeff Baines also set for a recall.
Meanwhile HARROGATE 2nds stay second in York Senior League Division One after an impressive victory over Sheriff Hutton Bridge last weekend.
They welcome Clifton Alliance 2nds tomorrow.
On Saturday, Bridge’s Paul Oldfield made 54 and Adam Fisher 61 as ‘Gate’s opponents posted a sturdy 227-7 with the willow.
Matt Ingham (3-88) was the pick of the bowlers.
Sedgley then produced a match winning 108 not out in reply with Andy Hawkswell (55) and Ingham (32no) supporting as they pulled home for a six-wicket win with 11 balls to spare.
