Wednesday the 25th July saw the Durham Pilgrims annual trip to Escrick Park on another hot sunny day.
In a high scoring match the Durham Pilgrims batting first took a liking to the YG's bowling attack and scored at over 8 an over to rack up 346 for 7 declared. An opening stand of 119 by C. Steels and K. Balkwill and a superb 68 ball century by Q Boatswain left us with a tough chase.
In reply the YG's scored freely enough but lost regular wickets. Everyone made contributions but no one reached 50 with P Malloch top scoring on 48. At 143 for 7 it looked like a heavy loss on the cards but a good rearguard action by Malloch, Lovatt (21) and last wicket pair Dewi Winkle and Neil Dale saw us reach 235 for 9 at close with the two YG's veterans! surviving 4 overs to draw the match.
