Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 14 v Holmesdale on Sun 13 May 2007 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 76 runs in a 15 over match.

Match report A fantastic first match of the season for the Under 13 colts, the defending champions of the Border League.
Coincidentally the match was against the only team to beat the colts last year, in the corresponding fixture, thus revenge was needed.
Of course this is a new colts team, with only Vickery and Freeman being regulars at U13 last year. Most of the Holmesdale boys were the same as last year.
As the weather was doubtful, with drizzle persisting from the off, it was agreed to make the match a 15 over contest.
Edenbridge won the toss and decided to bat. The openers made light of the conditions and both Freeman and debutant Boakes scored at will with some fine shots.
Gillett also took a toll of the bowling with support from Vickery, Bushell and Babai to put up a very solid score of 122 for only 3 wickets. The only criticism could be of some slow running between the wickets.
The players and crowd then took advantage of an excellent tea provided by Emma Vickery.
Holmesdale needed to score at over 8 an over and were soon behind the rate, in fact never reaching much more than 3 an over.
The bowling was uniformly excellent, hostile from Vickery, Freeman, Boakes and Gillett and naggingly accurate from Bushell, Melville, Babai and Dodgson who took a fine pair of wickets on his debut.
Further encouragement can be drawn from the groundfielding which was too sharp for Homesdale as two boys were run out when they would have expected to make their ground.
Even the Holmesdale parents and boys remarked on how good the Edenbridge boys were in the field. I have never seen an Under 13 display as good.
Thus the season is underway with maximum points and confidence at a high. Let's keep up the good work at Bidborough next week.
Many thanks to Peter Jeffery for umpiring in trying conditions.
