Under 12’s vs West ChiltingtonExciting finish ends in narrow defeat for the U12s against strong West Chiltington side WG U12s were honoured to play their first cricket match of the season on the hallowed turf of the Green. The conditions were perfect and there was much excitement and optimism in the air, fresh from last weeks’ victory. WG batted first, the openers Oscar Warmington and Ran Dawson protected their wickets well against some accurate bowling whilst dispatching the bad balls to the boundary: Oscar deservedly retired at 30, Ran was out for a good 21. Will Dixon then came in and scored 29 not out and was ably supported by Fraser Ayers (4 not out). After 20 overs WG ended up with a solid 112-2. Despite wickets from Ran Dawson, Oscar Warmington and Fraser Ayers, the scoreboard was ticking over helped by a steady stream of wides and no balls. Fraser Williams was brave and agile in equal measure behind the stumps. The team looked keen and alert in the field and Oscar managed a sensational run out with a direct hit from 20 yards out. Credit should also be given to Harry Hunter, Kit Witheridge, Nicholas Von Schoenberg, Tom Bonney, Seb Wilbaut and Toby Nicholls for their prowess with the ball and commitment in the field. However despite a creditable bowling and fielding performance led by the Captain Harry the extras got the better of us and West Chiltington sneaked to victory after 18 overs with 113-4. An exciting close contest where small margins made the difference. Well done to everyone in the U12 team. click here for the full scorecard
Under 5/6/7 training on the Green
The under 5/6/7 had a big group of nearly 30 children on the Green on Friday evening. The coaches were grateful for the help from a lot of the parents who are always welcome to join in the sessions.
Some good performances from everyone who attended – most notably Harry Maggs with some great bowling and Matilda Rashbrooke in the under 5s for some fantastic batting. It was Matilda’s first ever attempt at cricket which made it even more special. Well done to Harry and Matilda – good to see your names on the Honours board this week.
We are looking forward to seeing everybody again on the Green on Friday from 6-7 .

This week we shine a light on social media.
Teenagers – its not only your generation who had social media . Feast your eyes on the ‘ social media platform’ your parents no doubt grew up with ( and survived … )
And this is how you were ‘blocked’ from using social media in the 80’s and 90’s.
How on earth does anything actually ever get done nowadays ??
That’s it for this week
If there is anything we need to know, you know where to find us.
Have a great cricketing week
