There is not many better ways to spend your Sunday morning than watching cricket in some well deserved sun!
This mornings match was against Colton under 9s in the Leeds & Wetherby league. Harry captained today opting to bat first! The team did very well hitting 20 boundaries In total against some excellent bowling from Colton! Slight change today with Marcus and Louis opening the batting, scoring an impressive 48 between them! Second up was Joe and Maxwell who manged 35 runs matched with some great communication. Third was Henry and Arthur who scored 39. The most impressive thing was the variety of shots they played between them. 4th up was Harry and Thomas who scored 20 between them and only gave one wicket away which was excellent! Last but not least was Luca as we played a 9 a side game. Luca did a top job getting 12 runs by himself!! Overall an excellent job!
Colton were great when it was their turn to bat. The team did very well to stop as many runs as possible. In training we have been working on 'backing up ' and that showed today with all the team communicating well and supporting one another. 7 wickets were taken in total special mention to Joe and Marcus who took two amazing catches also. Great to see the fielding come on in such a short period of time. Not as easy as it looks!
Like many other games it was the first time out for many. This was coltons first game this season due to all the cancellations. They did an a great job and was good to see the juniors enjoying themselves! Coaching staff on both teams really appreciated the opportunity to play and for all the support the parents continue to give.
Final score was Carlton 326 - Colton 241. Well done to both teams!
