GREAT END TO THE SEASON

The U12s finished their league season in style with a 7 wicket win over Chalfont St Giles at Penn House Park. Chalfont St Giles batted first and accumulated 115 runs in their 20 overs. The Winchmore Hill bowling was not at its best. 23 wides were bowled and with 5 no balls as well we gifted the opposition 28 runs. This is something we must address. Sam Richmond provided the one highlight with a super catch at backward point. Fortunately our batting was secure and we reached our 116 target with two and a half overs to spare. Brandon and Chris set the innings on its way, batting sensibly, before Brandon skied a catch. Chris went on to score a well compiled 30 and Olly matched this with some strong hitting. Lewin and Seb finished the job off with Lewin cracking three 4s in a row to give the team a deserved win.. This win puts Winchmore Hill into second place in the league but this maychange if the remaining league matches are played. Well done U12s,a good evening's work!

LAST LEAGUE GAME...COME AND WATCH

The U12s play their last league game of the season at home against Chalfont St Giles on Thursday.

Why not come and watch. The net will be available and the Clubhouse will be open. It looks like the weather is going to be fine so take advantage of this and come and support the U12s.

This coming Friday will be the last supervised coaching session of the season. Club members may use the net at any time during the school holidays but an adult must be present and the correct cricket equipment must be used.

Sunday morning sessions will continue to the end of August.

The net is to be refurbished in the week beginning 28th July. I cannot give you a specific date yet. It has been a long time getting this work sorted and financed but I am sure it will be well worth it.

WELL DONE EVERYONE!

Another amazing effort by all Club members at today's U9/U10 tournament. Huge congratulations to both our U9 and U10 teams who reached the semi-finals. Both teams were just edged out of a place in the final by teams that were particularly strong. It was no disgrace, we played amazingly well. I will not mention each individual who helped but the WHCC community worked tireslessly throughout the day and delivered an event to be proud of. Our visitors were full of praise for us. WELL DONE US!

TWO IN A ROW..WAY TO GO!

The U10s had their second game this week with a league game at home against Chalfont St Peter. Buoyed by their victory over Bledlow the U10s were optimistic that they could forge another win. WH fielded first, and as is usual we started well.Libby and Alex Egan took a wicket each to make sure that the opposition's first pair only advanced the score by 8 runs. The subsequent bowlers were not so successful until Bear had a magic over taking two wickets. Alex E and James also put the brakes on the score with more wickets but some wayward bowling allowed Chalfont to advance to 257 runs. We knew we were capable of overhauling this score. Captain Flora and Alex E had a solid opening partnership keeping their wickets in tact. The second pair of James and Libby scored plentiful amounts of runs but sadly lost three wickets in the process. Aidan and Daniel were steady but only advanced the score by five runs. Bear and Lucas had a partnership of ten and once again it was left to Sam and Alex H to guide the team home. Although they only scored ten runs the most important thing was they did not lose a wicket against Chalfont's best bowlers. At the end of the innings WH had scored 271 runs, a relatively comfortable victory. A brilliant end to the U10s league season. How well they have progressed!

HARD TO BELIEVE!

Dear Glynis I’m really sorry about the match last Friday. I’ve been looking through my emails and phone to try and find the emails you sent me but none have come through. Normally I would respond quickly to my emails, especially when confirming matches. Due to an admin error on our end I didn’t have the correct date for the game. Apologies Ben

Sadly he forgot to look on his own club's website where the match was clearly stated! It's so easy to blame social media.....I don't buy it at all! They did not want to play so conveniently forgot about the fixture.

A CLOSE WIN

The U10s had an exciting win against Bledlow Ridge at Penn House Park. Bledlow arrived with only eight players but WH allowed two of their team bat again and we lent them two fielders so they could field ten.

We fielded first and got off to a blistering start. In the first four overs we took four wickets and only conceded four runs. Sadly things then went downhill with Bledlow feasting on a host of wides, no balls and bad balls! Runs started to flow for Bledlow and they ended on a very respectable 265. WH did take 11 wickets, which was a blessing otherwise the total would have been huge!

So WH went out to bat looking to keep wickets in tact and gradually accumulating runs. We did lose wickets, one to a usual WH run out mess up. Bear and Robbie batted sensibly and kept their wickets in tact leaving captain of the day, Sam, and Alex H to score 15 runs to overtake the Bledlow total. The pair managed the task in the last over despite some accurate Bledlow bowling. WH ended on 268, a win by three runs. An excellent result from a very well contested game.

LOOKS GOOD FOR THE GAME TONIGHT

Although we have had some showers in Winchmore Hill it has not been substantial rain so I am not foreseeing any problems for tonight's match. In fact I'm hoping the sprinkling has helped the grass at the pitch, it was certainly very dry. Unless I post a message here by 4.30 pm the match will be on. The radar does not show any more heavy rain.
