Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 14 v Speldhurst on Sun 22 Jun 2008 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won Edenbridge 124 for 4 Speldhurst 106 all out

Match report With Mark 'Erikson' Vickey enjoying a well earned break in the sun, Rob 'Tord Grip' Peters was back in the hot seat, ably supported by Alex Freeman again stepping up the ranks to give another excellent captain's performance.

We batted first and George scored a solid 37. Boakesy and Smiffy moved us along nicely with 19 and 20 respectively, followed by Jack Leighton with 13 not out. We just missed out on an extra batting point by scoring 124 for just 4. I felt this may have been just enough, knowing how strong we are in the field.

I was not disappointed !

Alex opened our bowling with figures of 4-0-13-2 with Boakesy having 4-1-17-3. Bency had his usual tight spell (4-1-19-0) but unusually no wickets and Aaron showed how his bowling is progressing at 4-0-18-2.

The highlight around half way through the innings was a diving catch by Wicky Peters around gully position off the bowling of Aaron - that's my boy !

Speldhurst had a couple of big hitters in mid order, but David Waterhouse ran twenty yards with the ball to run out their top scorer (32) whilst he was discussing the merits of running with his batting partner. David went on to hold a good catch off the bowling of Jake, who only bowled one over and only one run was scored from it. George had a solid spell near the end with figures of 3-0-17-1.

The highlights at the end were two great catches by Jake - that's why he is a goalkeeper - with the second a brilliant two handed catch high and behind him which resulted in the final wicket on the final ball, giving us maximum bowling points.

Final score was Edenbridge 124 for 4 and Speldhurst 106 all out.

Teas were provided by Glynis 'Kipling' Boakes with muffins galore and a general enthusiasm from all that she should spend another afternoon in the kitchen next Saturday in readiness for our next challenge.
