Lancs Over 50s Lose Clash of The Roses
Lancashire Over 50s couldn't quite follow their previous victory, losing to Yorkshire on 25 June at Studley Royal CC.
In the face of some very tight bowling from Yorkshire, Lancashire closed on 177 for 6. P Sutcliffe scored 61, C Lord 33 and J Partington 34.
Yorkshire got off to a very fast start but good spin and seam bowling pegged Yorkshire back. However the total of 177 wasn't quite enough to defend with Yorkshire winning by scoring 181 for 6. The pick of Lancashire bowlers were C Dearden 2 for 32 and N Doyle 1 for 18.
Next match is against County Champions Durham on the 2nd of July away at Norton CC.
