Our under 11s hosted Wetherby and were confident as always. James Lakin and Isaac Blisland made their debuts with Harneeka, Joash, Archie B, Seb, Elliot and Charles completing the team. Captained by Charles, we were put in to bowl first. We managed to take 3wickets, with Elliot taking 2 off his 3 overs for 6 runs and Harneeka bowling 2 overs for 2 runs, bowling the only maiden and Archie only conceding 9 from his 3. Excellent bowling saw Wetherby make 260.
Onto our batting, we opened with Archie and Seb who managed to put on 17 without losing a wicket. A great start with Archie hitting two lovely boundaries. James and Elliot then came in and managed 4 runs but unfortunately lost 2 wickets. Our 3rd pair, Harneeka and Isaac faced some good bowling managing to score 3 runs but lost 5 wickets, one being a crazy run out! Our trusty fourth pair of Joash and Charles had alot to do, needing 54 runs to win the match. They managed to get 22 without losing a single wicket, both being very busy taking quick singles and both hitting a boundary each. Overall, a good batting effort resulting in a total of 237.
We managed to score more runs off the bat than Wetherby but sadly gave away afew too many wides and lost 4 more wickets. A good performance though, just the basics to tighten up! Thanks to Pete Westmoreland for scoring and Sarb for looking after the tuck shop. JD
