Durham 2nd XI fell to their heaviest defeat of the season against a rampant Yorkshire 2nd XI at Harrogate.

The home side wrapped up victory by an innings and 62 runs early on the final day to inflict a third successive defeat on Durham in this season's second eleven championship.

Former Yorkshire youth team player Dylan Budge (34) briefly offered some resistance but when he became one of Josh Shaw's five victims, the innings quickly subsided.

Shaw finished with impressive match figures of 10-71 after the 18-year-old seamer bowled last man Max Morley to seal the win.

Durham skipper Graham Clark had travelled back from first team duty in Manchester to bat at number eight but he could only manage 19 runs before he was also dismissed by Shaw.

Alastair Maiden's side are next in action on Tuesday July 29th when they host Worcestershire in a trophy match at Brandon Cricket Club.


STUMPS, DAY TWO. Durham 2nd XI 224 & 54-5 v Yorkshire 2nd XI 416 all out (Hodgson 113, Gibson 79, Tattersall 64, Wainman 56). Durham 2nd XI trail Yorkshire 2nd XI by 138 runs with five second innings wickets remaining.

Durham 2nd XI appear to be on the brink of a second heavy defeat to Yorkshire 2nd XI in the space of 96 hours after a disappointing day two at Harrogate.

Following the 185-run reverse in a trophy game on Tuesday, Durham were put to the sword on Thursday by Dan Hodgson, who hit a century for the white rose county.

A first innings lead of 192 was established before the hosts took five wickets to leave Alastair Maiden's young side in trouble on 54-5.

The day belonged to Hodgson, who actually represented Durham at junior level before his choice of university took him to Yorkshire.

The 24-year-old hit 17 boundaries during his stay at the crease and enjoyed a profitable stand of 136 with England U19 International Jonathan Tattersall (64) for the third wicket.

Hodgson then joined forces with Will Rhodes and Ryan Gibson to establish a lead. Gibson smashed a 58-ball score of 79 in just over an hour to help take the game away from the visitors.

Durham were without the services of captain Graham Clark who had travelled across the Pennines to link up with the first team squad for their game at Lancashire. Nine bowlers were used in an effort to stem the flow of runs, and although Matt Milnes (2-64 from 25) bowled well, everyone else was expensive.

It was Milnes who finally dislodged Hodgson, but a quick fire half-century from number nine James Wainman lifted Yorkshire beyond the 400 mark.

21 overs were possible in the remainder of the day and Durham endured a disastrous evening session as five wickets tumbled.

Rammy Singh (20) was the only batsmen to reach double figures but he was caught by Hodgson shortly before the close to end a chastening day at Harrogate.


STUMPS, DAY ONE. Durham 2nd XI 224 all out (Buckley 60*, Clark 57, Shaw 5-43) v Yorkshire 2nd XI 67-2. Yorkshire 2nd XI trail Durham 2nd XI by 157 runs with eight first innings wickets remaining.

Ryan Buckley and Graham Clark hit half-centuries before two wickets from Usman Arshad rounded off an even day one at Harrogate.

Captain Clark's score of 57 means the 21-year-old has now scored 633 runs in his last 14 innings, at an average of just over 45. Clark eventually became one of Josh Shaw's five victims as the visitors slipped from 101-2 to 131-6.

But Buckley lifted his side up to a creditable 224, with the Darlington-born spinner striking 11 boundaries during his stay at the crease.

Arshad then bowled both openers before the close to leave Yorkshire still 157 runs behind Durham with two days to play.
