After blitz from WGC opener

WGC travelled with 7 players to which we agreed a couple of sub fielders.

Put into bat - the WGC opener Matt B opened his shoulders and hit our bowling as far as he could. It was along way. With 6 fours and 1 six our boys were delighted to see him retire. As did the ball. It was 62 for 1 off 6.

Our bowlers recovered their composure and the run rate dropped from 10 runs an over to a more comfortable 5. And there were wickets too.

James G and Ed Swift cashed in and bowled good spells. In the case of James G - an unplayable 2.1 overs, 1 maiden, 3 wickets for 2 runs with his first 2 wickets coming from his first 2 balls. And then the last wicket to end the innings and to thwart the returning opener. Almost as miserly and important, Ed's 2 overs were fast and straight returning 2 wickets for 8 runs with visitors finishing on 102.

The fielding was good and Toby had another good day behind the stumps.

In reply, a second wicket partnership of 67 between Ed (33) and Kieran (20) played at a good rate took the game away from WGC. Our loaned fielders played their part but perhaps not as much as 36 extras which helped the boys to a cool 5 wicket win in 12 overs.

After a tricky start - the U15s played well and were deserved winners.

It should have been on to an away fixture at Hoddesdon but that fell foul to the weather.

Next up is a home fixture vs St Margaretsbury with all to play for in the quest for a QF spot.
