Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 14 v Holmesdale on Sun 11 May 2008 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 30 runs

Match report The second match of the season for the U14s (U15 Div 2N)team and another success.
Blossoms was in fine condition, which is a great credit to the groundstaff who have had little good weather since the trun of the year. The wicket played very well and a high scoring match was witnessed.
Bridge batted first as Homesdale took to the field.
The openers Vickery and Phillips were soon into their stride against nippy openers who dropped short too often. Ben went on to make and entertaining 31 and Adam an initially controlled but latterly more violent 55 retired with 3 sixes and 6 fours .
There was some useful support from Boakes and Babai but the innings rather meandered towrds the end. The slower the bowling the more transfixed our boys appeared to be. A little more concentration on running the first quickly might see some boys turn singles into twos.
Tea was then taken with Mrs Vickery providing the jam sandwiches and Mrs Freeman the hard labour. Many thanks.
Homesdale then batted, needing 153 for an unlikely victory.
For about 14 overs it looked nip and tuck. Their opening bat handed out some fearful tap but I can have no complaints in general about our line and length bowling. Freeman was hostile and will take more wickets with inferior bowling, Phillips was guilefull and Boakes, Bence and Jervis were steady. Even our debutant Sam Walker steamed in for a rapid 22nd over.
Only one point of criticism for the boys. More support is needed for the captain in thinking about field positions and doing the obvious (and not waiting to be moved in or out on every ball). We also need to get some noise going on the pitch, bowlers respond to praise (just like coaches, beer and praise in their case).
Another 15 points and an encouraging start to first season of U15 cricket.
