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
