A real team performance..

 The U12s won an exciting league game against Marlow in the last over.

The start was delayed as WH players had to rush from various other activities. The rush hour traffic did not help!

We fielded first and after 20 overs Marlow had scored 107. This was largely due to two Marlow batsmen and our inability to bowl straight. We conceded 33 extras! However, we did field well and the catching was exceptional. Well done the Hanrahan boys!

Everybody bowled two overs. This was to give all the players some much needed experience. Players can now go away and work on reducing those dreaded extras.

Our batting started with a bang as James H dispatched the ball to all parts. After Sam was dismissed we were somewhat becalmed but Alex E soon got into his stride with some delightful shots. James just missed being able to retire when he tried one too many big hits. His brother, Daniel, continued to strike the ball well and we were soon up with the required rate. Alex retired on 30, a splendid innings. Ultimately we needed 3 runs from the final over and Bear and James Attock only needed three balls to wrap up a well deserved victory.

Well done all, especially the parents who drove from all parts to make sure we had a team.

A double for the U14s

The U14s struck for the second time with a resounding victory against neighbours Penn and Tylers Green on their own patch.

Taking the field with only 10 players WH restricted Penn to 119 in 20 overs capturing 9 wickets on the way.The bowling was a little less erratic than last week but we were still too generous with our wides and no balls. Seb Maxwell bowled a magic over to cut down Penn's most dangerous batsman and Ollie G took three wickets and only conceded 13 runs in his 4 overs. The Hanrahan boys played their part with a wicket, catch and run out to help the team's cause.

The run chase started well with Brandon and Ollie laying the foundation for the innings. Ollie lost his wicket to the talented Holly Wilson but Brandon and Chris punished the Penn bowling bringing the team to the brink of victory. Brandon was dismissed for an excellent 41 but Seb's innings was brief. Sam helped Chris to bring up the required runs with 4 overs to spare. Chris finished on 39 not out.

A great victory on a lovely sunny, summer's evening.

HELP, HELP, HELP!

The U12s have only got 9 players for their match against Marlow on Thursday.

Is there anyone who could help the team out? Any U10s who would like a game?

For once the weather looks set fair so we should be taking advantage of the fine conditions and getting matches played. If you, or you know of someone, who can play please let me or Jane Bowen know.

Rain, hail, sun, showers & cold but a win!

 The U14s started their league campaign with a win on an evening when we had every weather condition apart from snow!

The match was reduced to 15 overs per side after a heavy shower. Ballinger Girls batted first and found the going tough. They were helped to a total of 51 by a generous helping of wides and no balls from our bowlers. But, to be fair, conditions were difficult with players struggling to keep their feet. Sam Richmond took two wickets and a catch.

WH's reply took an early blow with captain Brandon slipping on the wicket and getting run out. Ollie's innings was also brief but Seb and Chris steadied the ship and brought the team to the brink of victory. Seb was run out from a direct hit, although he should hang his head for not sliding his bat in! Ben and Chris completed the victory with more than an over and a half to spare.

A good start to the season.

Getting warmer!

 Should be quite pleasant for cricket tomorrow morning, the last Sunday before we are joined by the All Stars.

We are still struggling to get numbers for the U10s but we are not the only Club. Gerrard's Cross have withdrawn from the League so no game this coming week. This may give us some time to boost numbers before the next game. If any Year 4 or. 5 has a pal who fancies a game of cricket invite them along.

U12s travel to GX on Wednesday( if they can raise a team!) and on Friday the U14s take on the formidable Ballinger Girls U16s.

Let's make the most of the fine weather to get some valuable practice.
