U11 match v Farnham Royal OFF

 

29th June 2016 Posted by Glynis Culley

KEEP AN EYE OUT!

The weather tomorrow looks grim. It is due to start raining at lunchtime and continue through the afternoon....let's hope the forecasters are wrong! However, I will have to make an early decision as Farnham Royal have a good distance to travel. So keep an eye on this site and parents will receive an email if I have to call the game off.

At least we were better than England

So.....I thought our U13s didn't play too well this evening. But when I got home and watched the football I realised we were not that bad in comparison. I hope those of you who opted to stay in and watch the football enjoyed yourself! You would have had far more fun watching the U13 match. Sadly we lost to Ballinger U15 girls. We batted first and only scored 59. Why? Well we decided to give the girls catching practice. Four out of our first five batters lobbed catches into hands that caught well. Good balls....no rank bad ones that we could not despatch! We limped along for 20 overs with nobody making a significant contribution. Accurate, well disciplined bowling would have made a fight of it and we had a dream start with a wicket with the first ball. That's about as good as it got. There was some decent bowling and we took three more wickets but it was all over in the 15th over. As usual extras was top scorer...18. A brave effort to defend such a low total. But onwards and upwards which is more than I can say for the England football team. Try supporting Wales!

Fantastic effort at Holmer Green!

 The Club took two six a side teams to the Holmer Green Tournament today. The U11s did not quite hit their straps and, although their bowling was good, the batting let the team down. To be fair conditions were difficult. The ground was sodden after overnight torrential rain and the ball barely bounced on the wet wicket.

The U10s fared better. After the group stage the team lost one and won two which was enough to put the team into the semi-final. The team then really showed their potential against Great Kingshill. The bowling, batting, and fielding were superb and the team recorded a resounding victory.

The final was against GK's 'A' team, the team we had lost to in the group stage. But with our improvement the team was confident. Sadly our batting did not fire which meant GK were chasing a small total. WH bowled and fielded well but GK had the edge and were narrow victors.

A great effort from everyone involved especially as we had the frustration of not playing for over two hours in the middle of the day!

Players: U11s  Sam Richmond, Bear Dunster, Alex Hanrahan, Daniel Hanrahan, James Hanrahan, Libby Bakkes

U10s  Alex Egan, Lucas Barnett-Harris, James Attock, Ethan Horne, Shaan Majithia, Robbie Dawson, Stanley Matthews, Bear Dunster
