1st XI v Whitgift
William S – 2 wickets for 20 runs
Jack W – 2 wickets for 21 runs
Jayden B – 0 wickets for 15 runs off 6 overs
Sam H – 35 runs
In the final of the London & South East Region Bunbury Cup, our 1st XI got off to a great start against Whitgift School. Tight bowling from Jack W and Campbell T restricted the opposition to 18 runs off their first 10 overs. Jayden B took an impressive one-handed catch. Some good bowling from William S and Harvey P took important wickets, but a strong fight back from the tail saw Whitgift get to 130 runs for 7 wickets off 30 overs.
After a positive start with the bat, we found ourselves 50 without loss off 10 overs. The game was completely in our hands before we found ourselves 65 for 7 wickets. Sam H pushed Whitgift with 35, but 3 run-outs and several catches left us with a mountain to climb. A final score of 85 was not enough in a game of ‘if only’!
The boys should be proud of their achievements to get this far.
Squad: Charlie H, Sam H, Nathan M, Jayden B, Campbell T, Harvey P, Jack W, Joseph G, Arthur C, William B
