The season continues and it is hoped that the weather for the weekend is as forecast, and not how it has been over the past few days.
Lots of our sponsors have social media accounts on Facebook/Twitter – especially for all the support they have given the club over the past few months. If you wish, please give them a like/follow.

The First Team face a trip to Stockton & Hopgrove, who recorded their first league win of the season last weekend against Ben Johnson. They face an Ovington First Team who recorded a narrow victory in their previous game against Wheldrake. In that game, as well as this, they would go into it as strong favourites, so will have to be aware of complacency. Those with good memories will recall that Ovo’s Craig Nicoll scored 248 not out against Stockton & Hopgrove back in 2015.
The Second Team face a home fixture, but due to York Races, it will take place at Millthorpe School. They play a Malton & Old Malton side who languish second bottom, only ahead of struggling Fulfordgate. Our Seconds have put themselves in with a major chance of promotion and will be favoured to win against a team yet to win in the league this season.
The Thirds are punching above their weight in the Third Division, currently in 4th and only one point behind Pocklington, whom they beat early in the season. The race to finish in the top six is still wide-open, with only the top two guaranteed a spot, with the other four spots contested by six sides. Ovo play Acomb away on Sunday this weekend, one of those in the division who are unbeaten and against a team that are traditionally stronger on a Sunday than on Saturday. Acomb also be at an advantage due to a proportion of the Ovo side visiting York Races on the Saturday prior.
Sunday sees two recently unbeaten teams in Ovington U13 and York U13 face off at Clifton Park, while the U13 “B” entertain York “B” on the Little Knavesmire. The Under 15’s face the trip to Sheriff Hutton Bridge on Monday evening, with plenty of other games scheduled throughout the week. The Foss Evening League side, rained off in their last game against Stillingfleet, return to the Little Knavesmire for a home game against Westow.
