A blistering 110 by the ebullient Ste Yates and a fine 60 from Gareth Bleasedale ensured Shireshead 2nds might post a total in excess of 250 against Ingleton as the pair put on 143 for the third wicket. At 223 for 6 in the 41st over 250 plus looked a certainty until the North Yorkshire rain ruined the occasion and the visitors had to settle for a 6 point rain affected draw. However, this was enough to ensure they were winners of Division 2a and will play in the play-off final on 19th September.
