U8Cs v Fleet
The opening game of the season was a closely contested affair, with the final score being 248 v 256 - so we lost by 6 runs! Overall our batting we better than theirs, but they bowled a bit tighter - so gave away fewer extras.
Some good performances in the field, with a great catch from Henry Pritchard off Nicholas' bowling, a couple of wickets for Ben, 2 run out for Thomas plus another wicket from Henry P's bowling.
We did well with the bat - hitting 40 runs versus their 14 with a number of boundaries and a good partnership from Henry P and Thomas to get the score moving.
There was some good calling coming through too which is encouraging to see. Thanks to Henry East for Captaining the side.
