YEAR 4 CRICKET

 

The Year 4 cricket teams have been in action recently.

Firstly on Tuesday 6th May ten Year 4s travelled to Maidwell Hall on a fantastic day for cricket. The team was: Will M (Captain), Tom M, Will McE, George A, George B, George H, James B, Daniel R, Max W and Kian D.

Batting first, Stoneygate made 347 runs off their 20 overs (they start on 200). This was a large total and posed a difficult problem for the Maidwell Hall team. Good bowling and fielding prevented Maidwell Hall from really getting close to the Stoneygate score and the school won by 27 runs.

Best bowler was George H, Best Fielder was Kian D, Best Batsmen went to Tom M and Will McE. Man of the Match was George H.

SCORE AND RESULT

STONEYGATE 347, MAIDWELL HALL 320

STONEYGATE WON BY 27 RUNS

Our second match came against Leicester Grammar School on Tuesday 20th May.

Stoneygate took two 8-a-side teams to play against our local rivals.

In the first match our team players were: Will M (Captain), Kian D, Max W, George A, George H, George B, Tom M and Will McE. The match was an 8 over pairs contest where everyone batted and bowled. Stoneygate managed to score 137 runs (starting on 100). This was slightly disappointing as the team gave their wickets away far too easily costing them an extra 25 runs. Despite bowling well and fielding exceptionally well the small target was always achievable and LGS managed to get home by 1 run scoring 138 and blocking the last over for victory. Not playing across the straight ball should help towards an improved score next time.

Best Bowler was Will McE, Best fielder, batsman and Man of the Match was Will M.

SCORE AND RESULT

STONEYGATE 137, LGS 138

STONEYGATE LOST BY 1 RUN

In our second match the scores were much further apart. Our team of Declan M (Captain), James B, Daniel R, Lucas H, Edward B, Max H, George C and Alex M Bowled well and all players bowled overarm. It was this factor that made the difference in the match as the opposition bowled underarm apart form 2 players making it difficult to hit the ball. For our part we made too many errors in batting especially running when the ball had been hit to a fielder. Better running between the wickets next time should see an improvement.

SCORE AND RESULT

STONEYGATE 113, LGS 141

STONEYGATE LOST BY 28 RUNS

Our next match is Thursday 22nd May against Fairfield at home. Hopefully the weather will hold as the Year 4 boys have already lost a fixture due to the vagaries of our summer climate!

Thanks you to all the parents who came to lend their support to the boys.
