Sessay Cricket Club is a thriving and successful centre of excellence. One of only two 'elite' status clubs in North Yorkshire, we won the National Village Cricket Competition in 2010 at Lords cricket ground (home of the MCC) in London. And we currently boast two England youth internationals - one boy and one girl. There are 3 men's teams, 6 junior teams and a Girls' team. We place great emphasis on youth team development, and on opportunities for female players.
The cricket field is in the heart of Sessay, and.the location means players and spectators can enjoy the facilities of the Village Hall and bar - we are famous through the various leagues for the superb refreshments served in the tea interval ! Our changing facilties have just been completely revamped and are now spacious and state-of-the-art.
During the summer months all teams gather for practice on Friday evenings and the whole field is a whirlwind of activity. Each December we hold a club dinner to celebrate the achievements of the season and this is always very well attended.
If you would like to join the club as a player or offer support of any kind, you would be made very welcome and you can get further information at our website : www.sessaycc.co.uk
Sessay CC of Yorkshire produced a record breaking batting display to beat Kent's Sibton Park CC by 119 runs and lift the 2016 Davidstow Village Cup trophy at Lord's.
Sessay, appearing in their second NVC Final in seven years, powered their way to 307 from their 40 overs, with Simon Mason the star performer, hitting 138 from 110 balls - a knock which featured 19 fours and three sixes.
Number three Mason received brilliant support from Nick Harrison, who made 69 from 58 balls as the pair shared an entertaining stand of 156 for the third wicket.
Jacob Spencer then produced some late fireworks from number five, smashing an unbeaten 48 from just 18 deliveries, an innings which included three sixes and five fours.
Trevor Lewis, who opened up with his left-arm spin, was the pick of the bowlers for Sibton Park, producing a tidy spell of 2/37 from nine overs, but he was the only bowler for the Kent outfit with an economy rating of less than a run a ball.
Sessay's total was the highest ever made in a NVCC Final, and Sibton Park were always likely to struggle in response.
They did however make a reasonable start, reaching 51/1 after just 8.1 overs, but by the end of the 11th over, their innings was in tatters at 55/5, as Sessay captain Mark Wilkie and opening bowler Stuart Peirse each picked up a quick brace of wickets.
Sibton Park's innings was given some respectability by Ben Allon, who smashed a remarkable seven sixes and four fours in his 54-ball knock of 70, but after he was the seventh man to be dismissed with the score on 154 Sessay knew victory was in sight.
Sibton Park were eventually bowled out for 188 from 37 overs, with Pierce the standout bowler, taking figures of 3/21 from his nine overs, and Matt Till collecting three late wickets to finish with 3/16.
