U11 Boys Cricket Final
On a hot sunny Wednesday afternoon in the idyllic surroundings of Newclose County Cricket ground our U11 team played in the County U11 Cricket Finals v Newchurch.
Having won the toss we fielded first and bowled well with Oliie setting the standard taking 2 wickets in the first over. Newchurch started to notch up runs at a steady rate always looking to put our fielders under pressure with some brave running but some fine fielding kept this down to 246 at the end of the innings. Another 2 wickets fell leaving Newchurch with a total of 246/4.
This was a score that was achievable to chase for our team based upon our scores from the previous matches. We batted safely and only lost 2 wickets. We started to put some runs on the board with a fine 4 from Charlie, but alas we were just a little too safe with our running and sometimes where we could have taken 2 runs opted to take a safe 1. This left us a little short with a final total of 231/2.
” A close game which might have gone either way but Newchurch just shaded it on the day. Well done to all of our players, everyone played their part and as a team have been a credit to Greenmount at every stage of the competition.” Mr Harris
