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
The weather looks fine for tomorrow so coaching and the Holmer Green Tournament will go ahead. ⛅
The ground at WH is still very wet and muddy so please be careful. Stay out of the muddy puddles and no sliding on the grass!
