On a very interesting and unpredictable Oaklands Park wicket with balls bouncing (or not!) all over the place we had our 1st win.
Batting first and taking the pitch into account everybody played their part and after 20 overs we scored a very challenging target for Chichester of 78. Christian top scored with 13.
With some very keen bowling and very good catches being made (Aaron and Phoenix) we prevented runs being scored. Needing 8 runs to win off the last over the match could have got away. However we held our nerve and managed to get their last batter out with 2 balls remaining and them still 5 runs behind.
It was very good to see everybody come off the field with a smile on their face and appearingly having enjoyed themselves. So well done all.
This is the first of a few emails I’ll be sending out tonight so please keep an eye out and respond as soon as you can.
Well played the U14 team, defending 78 is a great effort and bowling out the opposition, sounds a good game.
