York Senior Cricket League rivals battle it out on the road to Lord’s
10:37am Saturday 14th July 2012 in Sport
PREMIER division pride will be at stake when Woodhouse Grange and Sessay go head-to-head in the last 16 of the Yorkshire Tea National Village Cricket Cup tomorrow (1pm), writes Charlie Hollinrake.
The two Hunters York & District Senior League heavyweights have an impressive pedigree in the prestigious competition.
Tomorrow’s hosts Woodhouse Grange, of Sutton-on-Derwent, have reached the Lord’s final on four occasions, lifting the trophy in 1995 and 2007.
Sessay have appeared in the showpiece final twice, winning the cup in 2010.
The sides have met twice already this season, with Woodhouse getting the better of a draw in last month’s league clash and also winning a York Senior Charity Cup tie.
David Farmer, Woodhouse Grange secretary, said: “The Hunters York & District Senior League can be rightly proud that two of their premier division sides have reached the last 16 in the country in the Yorkshire Tea National Village Cup.
“Both clubs have proud traditions in this competition, but only one of them will progress to the quarter-final stage.”
Admission and parking is free for tomorrow’s fixture.
