Another heart stopper!

Oh boy! WH teams have been involved in some nail biting finishes this season and for once our team finished as victors.

The game was the U11s final league game of the season at home against Marlow. For once we were more worried about keeping our players cool than warming them up or keeping them dry! Sadly James A  succumbed to the sweltering conditions so WH was left with nine to wage battle.

Sam lost the toss but was pleased we were fielding first. The bowling was distinctly straighter leading to few runs being scored and five wickets being taken. Daniel H was on a hattrick as was Oliver Marshall. There was a couple of very good catches taken and if it had not been for Marlow's last pair the total would have been far less than the final 279.   

Having rehydrated WH set about overhauling Marlow's total. The reply did not start well! The stumps were clattered on the very first ball of the innings. Still, a great recovery, particularly by Alex Egan, put the team well in the positive by the end of the first four overs. We edged along steadily losing a wicket here and there but still scoring runs. It would not have been WH without a couple of run outs. Both were as a result of direct hits from the fielders but both batsmen would have been safe with more positive running and sliding the bat well over the line, instead of stopping.

The match hinged on the performance of the last pair, captain Sam and U8 player Ethan. Sam did not disappoint! Not only did he score important runs but he guided Ethan through the remaining balls. It was not the most convincing shot that won the game on the very last ball but who cares! The ball was edged through the gully region and the two runs required were easily taken. A great win!

Thank you U11s for testing my heart again!

Not in our league!

 The U10s finished their league season playing Cookham Dean at home. It was a bit of a mis-match with Cookham fielding County players and WH giving all our new young players match time. The game also saw the debut of six year old Spencer Wright.

Batting first Cookham piled on the runs and exceeded 300 thanks again to the generosity of the WH bowlers and some rather ordinary fielding. The WH players are having to learn lessons fast. Bad bowling and fielding is punished.

Alex and Toby opened the innings for WH and set a solid foundation. Sadly the innings did not progress much. As soon as runs were scored wickets fell and it was a minor miracle that our final score just crept above 200. 

The result was not important. What was important was that our players are getting valuable match practice and the sun shone. 🌞

Coaching resumes this Sunday

 After the fine effort of last week's tournament coaching resumes this Sunday. We also have an U 10 league game against Cookham Dean starting at 10 am.

Brave effort!

The U10s played away at Beaconsfield in their penultimate league game. With so many players on holiday it was necessary for our under age players and players new to hard ball to take to the stage. It was tough! We bowled first and sadly our inaccuracy was telling giving away 66runs in wides and no balls. Not many runs were scored off the bat and there was some excellent work behind the stumps by Alex. But Beaconsfield's final total of 297 was always going to be a challenging total to chase. And so it proved. Alex hit some lusty blows but no-one else really got going and just when the score looked like it was moving forward a wicket fell. Our final total of 240 just showed the gulf between the teams. It was part of a learning curve for many of our players and for others a case of practice makes perfect.

Bit of drizzle but match still on tonight

There is a band of light drizzle passing through but the forecast suggests that there will be no more rain this evening. So unless conditions change dramatically the U10 game is still on. I will post a message on this site and email parents if the situation changes.
