BREAKING NEWS! TABS U11 Manager catches his breath after Amazing Turnaround!!!!

Monday Evening saw TABS U11 host Bardsey in the Wetherby League Pairs.
Losing the toss, TABS were put in to bat.
Alex Hall and Hugh Williams opened up and although they lost a wicket each to the Bardsey quick bowlers, the 2 still posted 6 runs between them.
Joe Young and Finn Brooks added to the total with 18 more runs, Joe managing 13 suppoprted fantastically by Finn, followed by Thomas Marriott and Max Olbison adding a further 10 (9 singles) perfect!
Charles Westmoreland and Matthew Ferguson stood firm in the final 4 overs to allow TABS to post a very good 272 for the loss of 5 wickets.

Ball in hand, Alex and Finn opened up for TABS against an inspired performance from Shaun Brassil who, with his partner, managed to take 21 runs in total, with Shaun scoring 18 of those. Only 1 wide from the TABS pair, their bowling was fantastic, “sometimes we just catch a batsman on a good day”.
Mixing it up a little in the next 4 overs, Max was on the receiving end of some big hitting from Bardsey, but again, NO wides (just what i asked for). Hugh went for 3 Runs from his over and Joe for 1 more from his.
Thomas and Matthew slowed things down a little by only conceding singles, 8 in total from their combined 4 overs.
Hugh bowled his 2nd over of the match losing only 4 runs leaving Alex and Joe to close out the final 3. But for a great pull shot against Joe for 4 and a NO Ball from Alex, overs 14 & 15 could have easily resulted in maidens but as it turned out, Bardsey were sitting on a 9 run lead with 1 over remaining.
A dot ball followed by a no ball left TABS needing 3 wickets from 5 deliveries to win as they slipped 11 runs behind. Another dot ball landed and then it finally came, wicket No1, 2 more needed from 3 balls. Dot Ball landed again followed by an unlucky batsman chopping on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was it, 1 run behind and 1 ball remaining. Joe (snarling!) unleashed a quick one that shot straight passed the batsman and was gathered by Charles W, the batsmen panicked, thinking they needed 1 to win, set off down the wicket and allowed a cool headed Charles to take the bails off for a 4 run victory.
Unbelievable scenes followed and even the Manager of TABS lost it for a second!
Words escaped me in the dressing room but for one closing statement to the boys……..
“We never, ever, ever give up, even when we are down and out, we keep fighting”
I am unbelievably proud of these boys and their effort, everyone contributing and working as a team.

Win for U18’s

 

 

Win for U18

Win for U18

On a beautiful spring evening at the tutor2u oval TABS won the toss and elected to bat.

Openers Kilby and Riley soon found the boundary with ease. Ledsham slowed up the run rate for a couple of overs, however, it did not last long as the run rate improved again.

112/0 in nearly 17 overs was  a solid start. Both Riley(52)and Kilby(53) retiring not out, 32 runs came from the final 3.3 overs from Gibson, Powell, Tomlinson and Foulkes.

Total 144 a respectable target. Ledsham bowling well in the main.

After a drink and a pep talk from the manager the boys took to the field with vigour. Fielding and backing up the bowlers positively produced results.

Will Powell bowling three tight overs (2-8) clean bowling the danger men for a duck. Ollie Riley (3-8) with three wickets for eight runs had the game sewn up prior to Will Morrison(2-5) and Will Pritchard(3-1) grabbing the remaining five wickets. Positive bowling, field placing and catching proving very important, two from Gibson and one each for Rowan Bentley and Will Pritchard.

Ledsham all out for 36.

Magnificent team performance

Thanks to Adam for scoring and everyone for their best endeavours getting to the game.

Win for U11’s

TABS U11’s shaping up to be a formidable side.
Monday evening saw TABS U11 playing away at Kirk Deighton in a 1st vs 3rd clash.

Captain for the evening, Ben Jarvis, won the toss and opted to bat.
Opening the batting himself with partner Alex Hall the two managed a respectable 9 for no loss against a quick opening attack. Finn Brooks and Joe Young added to that total with a combined 11 for no loss with Max Olbison and partner Matthew Ferguson protecting their stumps and adding another 2 runs with no loss. Oliver Walsh and Charles Westmoreland added a combined 21 runs for 2 wickets lost giving a run total of 272.
Ball in hand, Alex Hall partnered by Joe Young and Oliver Walsh took 3 wickets in the opening 4 overs, 2 for Joe and 1 for Oliver. Max and Finn bowled overs 5-8 with Max taking 2 fantastic wickets supported by Finn at the other end. Charles and Matthew bowled overs 9-12 with a further 2 wickets falling to Matthew. It was then left to Joe and Oliver to close out, with Joe taking another wicket and a maiden in the final over of the match.
A convincing win by 32 runs but most impressive was how TABS protected their wicket and showed fantastic teamwork to keep them Top of the table with 5 wins from 5.

Its a real pleasure to be part of this ever improving side.

U9 win v Bardsey

“It was a big effort to get a game against Bardsey as they are struggling for numbers for their under 9s squad however, we still managed to get a game. We had to loan them three of our superstars; Harneeka, Will G & James Lakin so a huge thanks goes out to them for agreeing to play for the opposition (always a hard decision to make hence asking the parents/grandparents for permission!).
Edward Long captained the team, lost the toss and we were asked to bat first. We managed a very big total, scoring 288! Big runs from Will R (17), Edward Long (14), Joash D (21) & James Hall (17). The most impressive stat had to be that we only lost the 1 wicket throughout our innings so a really good effort by the team!
Bardsey had a really good go at trying to get the runs but unfortunately fell short by some distance only scoring 167. We managed to take 13 wickets in total, at one point Elliot was on a hat-trick bowling to his buddy James L but James dispatched the hat-trick ball for a crisply pulled boundary! Wickets were pretty much shared between the team, we were helped by some suicidal running between the wickets from their last pair but still, a very good effort. Well done TABS!”

U9 cup defeat at Collingham

“We knew we’d have a tough quarter final match in the cup against Collingham and it proved to be that. Captained by Gabby, we bowled first with Collingham making a big 300 runs. Wickets were hard to come by, we managed to take 5 in total but they were definitely used to the home conditions hitting some lusty blows over the short leg side boundary. Not deterred by the big score, we batted well only losing 5 wickets but couldn’t quite match the fire power of the Collingham team. Big scores came from James Hall (16), Charles (13) and Joash (22). A really good effort by the team, we’ll be back next year!!”

3XI make it 2 from 2 in thriller

Tabs thirds recorded a second successive win when they squeezed past Burn II by 2 wickets.
Burn won the toss and got off to a flyer but were pegged back by 2 John Kitson wickets, 76 for 2. Burn then got to 100 without further loss before the pivotal moment. Rowan Bentley shelled a dolly off his dad’s bowling but had the composure under pressure to get the ball in quickly and run out the non striker who was Burns most dangerous player. He then proceeded to hustle out the lower middle order with a burst of 4 for 18, ably supported by Matthew Bentley 2 for 17. Burn all out 134.
Tabs lost early wickets but a quick 21 from Sam Smith got us back in the game. A flurry of middle order wickets reduced Tabs to 101 for 8 but Will Pritchard stood firm with a very mature 28 not out and in partnership with his dad Steve saw us home with a stand of 34.
What a great victory over a strong second team. Thanks to Martin Kay and Steve Pritchard for making up the numbers and making sure we played and to Evan Bentley who made his senior debut and had to leave the field after 20 overs with a very bruised thumb after a brave effort to stop a drive at mid on apparently his dad’s fault for getting him in the wrong position! He was however gamely padded up and ready to bat if needed. Thanks also to Rachel Bentley for the super teas and to Richard Laver who as ever works wonders with the ground.
