Cracking first league win for U11s

LDCC U-11 beat Spencer Girls U-12 by 43 runs

LDCC 115-4  Alex 32* ret, Thomas 14, Rafe 6

Spencer Girls 72-6 Rafe 3-1-5-3, Idris 3-0-8-2, Louie 1-0-4-1,


MotM : Rafe – Solid batting in great opening partnership  of 32 with Thomas. Excellent bowling spell with 3 wickets and no wides!

Champagne moment: Louie Wood’s first LDCC wicket-clean bowled!


Cracking first league win (4pts!) of the season with more encouraging improvement in batting, bowling accuracy and fielding. Great attacking knock from Tom was unluckily cut short by a just legal low bounce.  Alex and Benedict patiently compiled a partnership of 52  leaving Louie and Matt little time to make their mark at the crease. Idris and Sam opened up the bowling attack. Idris quickly struck with a couple of excellent wickets in a very good spell. Thomas and Matthew got more good bowling practice but it was Rafe who tore through the Spencer middle order with three excellent wickets. This effectively ended their challenge. This spell also enabled us to get our young guns William, Sam and Ethan into the action and all three acquitted themselves well. Last word however was had by Louie, who after excellent work and great encouragement in the field got his first wicket for the team!!


Lots of thanks this week-I hope I’ve caught them all. Andrew and Sasha for running the Friday BBQ . Katie for sending the salad and Lesley and Spencer for running the colts café on Sunday. Andrew for supporting Steve on training and all the U-10s who helped us field a team this weekend.


Next Match is away to Wimbledon B next Sunday.
