Cowdrey v Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 14 on Sun 04 May 2008 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won 6 wickets

Match report The first match of our new season in the Under 15 league.
Fortunately we were away to Cowdrey so could avoid Boggy Park.
As it happens the day was warm and sunny with a light breeze, ideal conditions.
Of course the pitch was still rather damp after so much rain recently. This led to a difficult batting day and a very close finish to a low scoring match.
Cowdrey batted first and were very slow out of the blocks. Accurate opening spells against the top batters were bowled by Freeman and Bence. They were replaced by Phillips and Bushell and runs started to come more freely bu wickets began to fall. Boakes and Goodhew then came on to good effect with more wickets and finally Bushell came back with a decisive final spell.
In the end it was only a rather generous 23 extras that saw Cowdrey through to 83 but to take 10 wickets on such a dead wicket was commendable and the ground fielding was also of a good standard.
The Cowdrey bowling was of a much higher standard than their batting however. Our top 6 had to work very hard to stay up with the run rate.
The top performance of the day came from Bushell with a man of the match 29 run knock that would have been worth 50 on most days. With good support from Phillips and Boakes and excellent finishing from Freeman and Goodhew the target was achieved with all of four balls to spare. Alex and Seb were fortunately far more in control of the game than the management team were of their nerves.
Well done boys. A little care over extras and rather more positive runningbetween the wickets will see us improve even further as the season goes on.
