Christleton U11 (72/8) beat Davenham U11 (60/9) by 12 runs

A second victory for the U11s in our first home match against Davenham U11s. Well done to all.
Davenham batted first, and were soon pegged back by the Christleton bowling attack, with early wickets for Freddie Heyland (3/7 overall), Thomas Duffy, Charlie Cook and Mani Thamen. The bowling continued well, but Davenham’s score continued to creep up towards 60, despite first-ball wickets for Owen Jones and Adam Gibson, and a debut wicket for Toby Holland. Overall a good performance in the field, with lots of noise and good run-saving efforts.
Christleton enjoyed a strong start with the bat, and were always slightly ahead of the game, ultimately passing the Davenham total with 3 overs still to go. Noteable batting performances from Thomas Duffy (11 n/o), and particularly Will Edwards (7 n/o), and Adam Gibson, who both looked in good form, making 7n/o and 8 n/o respectively.  Good batting support as well from Monty Robson and Toby Holland, who both remained not-out during their 4-over innings.
Overall an encouraging win against tough opposition. However, still some areas to improve on in the coming weeks around ground fielding, playing straight to full balls and bowling accuracy

Christleton U11 (66/4) beat Barnton U11 (60/10) by 6 runs

Winning start for to 2017 Christleton U11s in what turned out to be a much tighter match than we all thought!
Christleton batted first, and made steady progress to 40 off 16 overs before a last minute burst from Thomas Duffy took us up to 66 off our 20 overs.
The Christleton attack then tore into the Barnton top order, with 9 wickets falling in the first 8 overs to leave them teetering at 25/9. Special mention to Freddie Heyland for his triple wicket maiden.

Game over we all thought….not so!

The Barnton batters steadied the ship, before their final pair launched an assault on our bowlers, to the extent that with 7 balls left they only needed 5 runs to win. Up stepped Owen Jones, taking a wicket with his final ball to swing the balance back in our favour, and Freddie Heyland closed out the game by taking his 4th wicket in the final over.

Good contributions from everyone in the field – well done!

The game will start at 6.15pm and admission is £2 for adults with under 18’s FREE.

A good performance from our Sunday side

Yesterday our Sunday side entertained County Officers.

It was agreed prior to play commenced to reduce the game to 20 overs a side due to the weather forecast and this turned out to be a good call !

Our side was lead by Josh and Ian and was a combination of youth and experience.  Sam retired on 50 and there were good contributions throughout the team including a great run out from Nick.

Thanks to Tony and his victorious County Officers side for a great game.

sunday team.
