The one where Yorkshire are flipping brilliant......

OK here it is......................MY BOYS GAVE ME A DAY I MAY NEVER SEE AGAIN!

Lets rewind though.

Yesterday dawned very sunnny and rapidly got cloudier and cloudier.
I went down to meet up with Mark, who had flown in from Northern Ireland to support the boys.
Rain came down and we headed to the Long Room, where we rummaged through the book stall and then  went back out to watch the boys.

The boys went into bat and Lyth and Lees showed that they meant buisiness as they motored away.
 Sadly Lees fell on 88, but Lyth went onto 114 not out with Garry Ballance.
When Ballance lost his wicket, Yorkshire declared.

It was great to see Lyth back in the runs.


Durham came out to bat, and before the close of play they were 3 wickets down and Jack Brooks had a lot to celebrate........................................and did with his trademark hi speed lap of honour.

This does  not even scratch the surface of the day that we had, it really is hard to put into words the whole 'feel' of the day.

The 'feeling' in the ground   seemed to be of 'expectation' and then ' excitement'

My boys looked confident and in good form, they looked liked the champions that they are.

What will today hold?

Well I had best get dressed and downstairs to find out?

and before I forget, a huge well done to Jake Ball who only went and took  another 3 wickets yesterday to  put the pressure on  current leaders Middx.

And apologies for this being late posted but I have been trying to get some much needed sleep.

See you tomorrow when I hope the whole of Yorksire will be smiling
