Edenbridge Cricket Club Under 15 v Horsmonden on Sun 10 May 2009 at 10.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 103 Runs

Match report A beautiful day at Blossoms and a much improved all-round performance by the boys after a rusty start last week.
An almost full team, just Matt and Adam missing, meant that we had only Harry standing in, but he again produced a great bowling return.
Bridge batted first (Alex learns quickly) and Ben had another fruitful day, retiring after an elegant 50. George was not far behind with a super 44. Luke, Alex and Bencey followed the rapier with a bit of bludgeon, KB scoring 23 off only 9 balls!Comic highlight of the innings was David's incredibly aggressive running. Horsmo's bowlers soon worked out that DW was about 5 yards down the pitch as they released the ball and ran him out (twice in the same over!). David contrasts nicely with George who is to be found leaning on his bat at mid-on as the bowler releases the ball and Ben who obviously thinks it is uncool to look hurried whilst running. My granny runs harder than Ben, and she is 98.
The result of all this was a score only 13 short of our (20 over U14) best last year. Against pretty good bowling and fielding not a half bad score.
Tea was then a real treat. Irish Tracy and Scotts Kate are now in a serious competition for our favours and the first Michelin Star. Long may it continue (well, until July at least).
A belly full of cake did not do our bowlers any harm. The Horsmo boys were largely Hors de Combat. The only real resistance came from their opener Davis who carried his bat carefully for 21 in a total of 78 for 9.
A notable bowling debut from Ryan Anderson who took 2 for 7, but all bowled pretty well with Ben even finding time to attempt 6 wides, an unusual event in any kind of cricket, particularly with a 50 yard boundary.
David now has the top bowling average, closely followed by Harry. Not a pair of frontrunners mentioned by the bookies at the off.
Well done lads, and hurry back Ken "Statto" Cooper.
