THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

This was the U10s first game of the season which was eventually played last!

We only had eight players but Beaconsfield agreed to match our number so we played eight a side. We batted first and found the going tough against some accurate Beaconsfield bowling. But the end result was that we ended in the positive at 248. We only lost three wickets but missed endless singles due to most of batsmen failing to back up.

Our bowling response was excellent. Compared to earlier season games our accuracy has come on in leaps and bounds, far fewer wides and no balls. We took four Beaconsfield wickets but it should have been more. Kamikazi running from Beaconsfield was matched by Keystone Cops fielding from Winchmore Hill so many run outs were missed. Ultimately we lost but those fumbles in the field cost us dearly.  We so easily could have been the winning side.

Well done to all the players and supporters who survived the bleak conditions.

WOOBURN U10 TOURNAMENT

Well done to our U10 6 a side team who reached the quarter final of the Wooburn Tournament today. Three good scalps, GX, Wooburn and Farnham Common, in the pool secton meant an encounter with Cookham Dean in the quarter final. CD proved too strong so our team was eliminated. A great effort though boys.

A BRAVE EFFORT

It was such a shame that the last U14 League game finished with the team having only eight players albeit eight quality players!

The trip to Wendover ended in defeat but it was not due to the lack of players more to the state of the wicket. Clearly the home side knew what to expect as they batted first and cautiously accumulated 105 runs. There were many singles and few boundaries due to rather long boundaries and the basin shaped ground. The WH bowlers did extremely well. Although only three wickets were taken the discipline of the bowlers was much improved, only one wide and one no ball. Such a difference from the beginning of the season.

The crunch came when we went out to bat. The Wendover bowlers knew that pace was not the answer to getting wickets. Their slow low deliveries, sometimes almost rolling , were the undoing of several of our batsmen. It is extremely hard to attack a ball that is barely inches off the ground. We became becalmed through the first half of the innings and when attack became a necessity it was too late and too difficult. Full marks to everyone for their fantastic effort in getting to 67.

KNOTTY GREEN GET KNOTTED!

It was a strange game! Firstly we were all unsure that the opposition would arrive. No communication had been received from them so we were relieved when they arrived.

The lucky 2p did its job and Sam opted to field first. Our bowling was the best yet this season. It was straighter hence the near absence of wides (James A ...no more please!) Knotty Green ended their innings prematurely on 68 having been bowled out. There was some excellent work in the field with two run outs and some great catching. Take a bow Sam for your brilliant one handed effort. Alex E took the bowling honours with a brilliant 4 for 10 to wrap up the inninngs. Three of those wickets came in one over.

69 is not a lot to chase but low targets can often cause problems. Problem one came in the first over when Bear had his stumps rattled by their opening bowler...eek 1 for none! James Q then was run out and Sam caught between attack and defence offered a simple chance. Problems? No, James A and Aidan to the rescue. James attacked whilst Aidan supported ably growing in confidence as the innings progressed. The game finished with a splendid hit for six into the trees from James who finished on 32 not out. It must be added that Knotty Green assisted our cause by giving us an inordinate amount of extras...thank you
