Colts B pairs cricket v Stamford Junior School AWAY
The Colts played a most enjoyable match in sunshine, rain, sleet and biting cold.
We batted first and due to some strong Stamford bowling we scored a modest total of 145 (45 runs). Lucas H (captain) batted well and our best pair was Dylan and Freddie. At one point we suffered a hat-trick of clean bowled wickets!
When Stamford batted they were always ahead of the required rate and they won comfortably.
However, we had some good moments in the field. Lucas fielded and captained well and got a catch and a run out with a direct hit from Atticus’s bowling. He was awarded ‘Man of the Match’.
Ed.B. got a clean bowled wicket and Ed.N. took a nice catch. Will and Atticus were solid as our wicket-keeper (they took half the innings each).
Our bowling was a little erratic and this is an area for the team to work on in the coming weeks.
