LIAM Featherstone was the star of the show for Glaisdale Cricket Club juniors as they won the Abbey Sports Trophy against junior league champions Fylingdales on Sunday.

It was the first defeat suffered by ‘Dales all season.

Glaisdale batted first and with the score on 20, skipper Featherstone was the first to go, having made 14.

Wickets fell at regular intervals after that and Glaisdale were all out for 72 in the 17th over.

Dan Hogarth was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3-16.

Sam Fussey and Charlie Smith both held onto good catches, all in all a good performance.

The feeling around the ground was that 72 was not going to be enough, but Glaisdale had not read the script.

Featherstone tore into Fylingdales from the start and by the end of the sixth over, had taken five wickets as Fylingdales were 19-7.

A stand of 20 between Jack Marsay and Harry Purves only delayed the inevitable and Fylingdales were all out in the 14th over for just 41.

Featherstone ended with figures of seven wickets for nine runs in four overs, all clean bowled.

He was well supported by Kelly, Brown and Liddle who each took a wicket to round off a good team performance.

The final was played at Mulgrave.
