A1 XI v RGS Lancaster (H) Won by 82 runs
Sedbergh 189-7 (Papworth 69)Lancaster 107-4 Sedbergh’s A1 dominated this game virtually from start to finish despite missing Rob Farrar. Charlie Papworth’s mature innings kept Sedbergh’s innings on track and at 120-4 with ten overs left the stage was set for a Josh Hodge cameo and he did not disappoint with a rapid 35 from 22 balls.Chasing 190 Lancaster struggled to score against an excellent new ball spell by Fin Mullen and Alex Mullins backed up by excellent fielding. After 25 overs Lancaster had struggled to 50-4 and the game was won. This was another strong team performance from the A1 lads. MPS

RGS Lancaster 101 all out
Sedbergh 102 – 0 (Woods 53, Rodd 33) 
After an impressive bowling attack, with Ed Whitehouse in particularly good form, getting 3 wickets, Sedbergh limited the away side to a low score off almost 30 overs. This great display in the field was followed up with a mature batting performance from both the openers who scored runs in a quick and technical manner.

B1 XI v RGS Lancaster (A) Match Tied
Lancaster 144 – 8
Sedbergh 144 – 5 (Haydon Wood 52*, H Hill 39, Brighetti 29*)
After a mixed fielding display Sedbergh set about chasing a competitive total that would not be easy to get on a difficult wicket for batting. Straight from the outset it was clear Lancaster fancied their chances of a home victory as bowlers from both ends charged in.

Sedbergh wickets fell early as our batsmen struggled to gain any ascendency in a high pressured environment. Needing 90 runs from the final ten overs Harry Hill, Will Haydon Wood and Michele Brighetti refused to surrender as they got Sedbergh to the last over needing 12 runs to win. In a brilliant spectacle Haydon Wood and Brighetti kept their composure and put pressure on the Lancaster field by desperately running between the wickets turning singles into two’s.

With one ball remaining Brighetti scored a vital single to tie the scores from what seemed an impossible position earlier in the innings. Special mention must go to Haydon Wood and Brighetti who showed real character and the Sedbergh belief that we will continue to fight and never ever give up!

B2 XI v RGS Lancaster (H) Won by 19 runs
Sedbergh 119 (Campbell 32, Roper 31)
RGS Lancaster 100 (Radcliffe 3-16, Bradley 3-22) 
A 30-over score of 119 on the small field of Cinders could easily have been too little but Sedbergh bowled economically and took key wickets at the right times to achieve an excellent victory.

SAILING

LASER LAKELAND AND FAR NORTHERN GRAND PRIX SERIES
BASSENTHWAITE EVENT – SAT 13TH JUNE 2015

In contrast to the three events we have taken part in so far the winds were very light – so much so that a break had to be taken after race 2 to wait for the wind to fill in again.  However 3 races were sailed which was a test of patience to all concerned, especially the race officer whose beat on race 2 turned into a run by the end of lap one!  

Four Sedbergh Sailors took part in all three classes of Laser – Chay Turner-Richard(P) in the full size rig whose best result of the day was a 4th in race 3; Kyle Chan (H) who was a last minute replacement for Peter Fairbank who has sadly broken his arm, sailing a radial rig for the first time in his life!  He even came first in his class.  

George Thomas and James Thomas (H) both sailed 4.7 rigs in order to continue their series in this class and George came out top in this particular clash although there was some dispute in race 1 but since this was their discard, it became an irrelevance.  Their best result was in race 2 where they came 9th and 10th respectively in the handicap fleet, though they retained 1st and 2nd in the 4.7 class.  

We wait to see the series scores updated on the website but George entered the day in 4th place overall in the series and 1st in the 4.7 class.  
Well done and much learning about light wind sailing.
