U12's vs Chudleigh
By Mark Pitman
Solid win for the U12's
On a lovely evening at the Kate Brook ground our U12's put in a solid performance to beat Chudleigh by 75 runs.
Winning the toss, Captain Sam Russell decided to bat on a green but dry pitch. Continuing in a rich vein of form both Russell and Sam Harvey retired on 31* and 34* respectively. Wickets began to tumble with only Harry Pitman making it to double figures with 24. Shot of the innings was from young Jack Ansley with a clipped off drive for 4 runs. A score of 142/5 looked a good one against a young Chudleigh team.
Pitman opened up the bowling with a maiden which immediately put the pressure on the Chudleigh batters. Wickets began to fall at regular intervals with Russell, Ollie Hall, Charlotte Steer & Louis Minty all taking 1 wicket. Chudleigh finished on a score of 67/4. (Top score was a certain Mr Wide with 23 !!)
A good performance by the U12's but a few aspects of the game to work on including bowling wides, ground fielding & the time taken between overs.
Thanks to the Umpires (Darren Harvey), the scorers (Sarah Harvey) and to Chudleigh CC for hosting the fixture.
