Another brilliant win tonight for the U11’s, this time in the Cup.
Here is the match report from Thursday. U11’s June 2nd vs Leatherhead – Cup Match at home
Long Ditton strode to another impressive victory in the first round of
the Cup, beating Leatherhead for the second time in 5 days.
The home team fielded first as some Leatherhead players were still
travelling when the match started. The visitors preferred to open the
batting, hoping any stragglers would arrive in time to take their place
at the crease. Wicket keeper Leo struck in the first over with a run
out, and when Oliver Leaning caught and bowled Leatherhead’s top scorer
from Sunday’s match in the 3rd, the tone was set. Captain Freddie
Goodyear took an athletic catch from Oliver in the same over, leaving
Leatherhead on 14-3. Felix Williams, Freddie and Ben Hughes bowled very
economically, allowing the visitors to reach just 36-3 after 8 overs.
Ollie Carter dovetailed excellently with Tom Webb as the next bowling
pair – Ollie took a wicket in each of his overs, with Tom taking a
catch off his own bowling. At 46-6 off 12, Leatherhead never looked
like posting a winning score. Tom Begg worked excellantly in the field
as well as bowling very tightly. Kit Goodwin ran out the next batsman
off his own bowling in the 13th, and then Oliver Leaning took a tricky
one handed catch off Kit’s bowling in the 15th. Jamie Kadapia took the
9th wicket, working well with Imogen in the closing overs to keep the
run rate down. Leatherhead finished on 87-9.
Long Ditton didn’t need their 20 overs to bring up the 88 runs needed
to win. Jamie K and Oliver L worked well together at the crease until
the 8th over when Jamie was run out to a brilliant direct hit from
close to the boundary, leaving the home team on 42-1. Oliver was bowled
in the 11th at 58-2, leaving Freddie and Imogen to see the team home.
When Imogen hit two boundaries in the 15th it was all but over with
Long Ditton on 86-2. The first ball of the 16th went for a wide,
setting up a well thought out win for the home.
Long Ditton won by 8 wickets.
