U11A Cricket v Longridge Towers

Venue: St Mary’s
Date: 18 May 2016
Won by 71 runs

A beautiful day ensued down on bottom field for our match v Longridge.

Longridge won the toss and chose to field first. William and Dicken took to the wicket as number 1 and 2. Both lads proceeded to bat excellently and racked up the runs very quickly with plenty of 4s and singles. William was having a great day with the bat but unfortunately got run out after some great backing up from Dicken. William scored a solid 16 runs. Mac came in and built up a strong partnership with Dicken before Dicken was also run out for 19 runs. Jake came in and enjoyed himself hitting 4 runs before unfortunately getting bowled from a very good bowl on middle stump. Alexander came to the crease and helped Mac bring St Mary’s run rate to 101 runs after 20 overs. Alexander was outstanding with his backing up and Mac was hitting the ball out the park eventually hitting 29 runs. Alexander finished with 14 runs all of which he pretty much ran!

Longridge then came into bat and St Mary’s had a very good day on the bowling and fielding front eventually bowling all batsmen out for 29 runs. Some highlights included Alexander’s run out from the boundary in which he hit the top of middle stump! Will picked up 3 wickets and Matt, Fergus, Jake and Theo all picked up the other wickets.

A great day and roll on next week against Belhaven!

Next job lads.
