Bidborough v Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 14 on Sun 15 Jun 2008 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won Edenbridge 104 for 6 Bidborough 101 for 7

Match report With Colonel Vickery back in charge and Vickery Junior returning as captain, the challenge was to replicate the result from the previous week when we bowled out Holmesdale for 15.

Bidborough are clearly a far better side and a victory was the target - indeed, the overall performance was as good as the previous week, with another outstanding display in the field.

Edenbridge batted first and despite the early loss of our skipper, George and Boakesy settled well against two six foot 15 year old bowlers with real pace, scoring 13 and 32 respectively.

Smiffy came in and smashed the ball around the picturesque ground for 21 (not out), supported by Wicky Peters (10) and James Gardiner on his debut for our 'senior' junior team (11).

After a dry biscuit and cupppa - barely enough to replenish the stomachs of our boys (let alone Ken 'The Pen' Cooper and 'The Management') - we progressed to another fielding performance of Olympic proportions.

Boakesy and Bency opened the bowling with the latter picking up two good wickets (both clean bowled), although Bidborough moved the score along steadily.

Then came along Aaron Jervis with an outstanding display of bowling at 4-2-7-1 along with George demonstrating his abilities as an all rounded at 4-1-12-1.

Jake and Smiffy continue to show their value as fielders, with a good run out and catch respectively. Wicky Peters continues to improve with each game, letting just two byes slip past him.

James Gardiner came on to bowl at the business end of the game with figures of 3-0-9-2 (unlikely to be good enough to prevent him being dropped to the under 15s) and held his nerve to bowl a dot ball in the final ball of the innings when Bidborough needed three to win.

Another winning performance to make The Management and parents proud - yet again !
