Quite an eventful
week one way or the other, with the 1st XI squad suffering
from some nasty injuries acquired both on and off the field, a
rumoured win for the 2s (though you shouldn't always believe
what a bloke tells you in a bar), and five of the 3s scoring
more runs than their respective ages, harder than it sounds in
some cases! Many of the 3s also feature in the final
U15A report of the season too.
Saturday 1st vs
Hook & Newnham Basics CC 1st XI, SPL Div 1
Hook win - Hook 408-5 off 50 overs, Hartley 211-9 off 39.5 overs. Aaron Wivell 76.
Saturday 3s vs
Colden Common CC 2nd XI, HCL Reg Div 3 NE
A complete performance from the 3rd XI this week.
Matt Brown (51), Graham Selden (41) and James Darnell (29) established a great base for the mid-order to have-a-go with Ryan Mulcahy (28 n.o.) and Tom Kirkpatrick (19 n.o.) to finish the team on 220-5.
Similarly the bowlers put pressure on the oppo early only conceding 56 off the first 20 overs; James Darnell 1-19 off 6 (his longest spell in cricket!) and Tim Soper 1-19 off 10. 88-4 to 96-9 saw Naqi Sadiq 2-20 and Graham Selden, 5-39 off 8 (with his last 2 overs 5-5!), end the game very quickly. To take the last 6 wickets for 8 runs was a superb effort. Well done team!
Particular mentions should go to our up-and-coming colts this week. Thoroughly engaging in the game and enjoying what the longer format has to offer.
A strong finish to
the season could see a possible promotion!
Sunday 3s vs Pyestock
Pyestock win - Pyestock 221-3 off 40 overs, Hartley 204-5 off 40 overs. Dan Bowles 44.
Eversley U15A vs
HWCC U15A – match tied!
Great entertainment at a gloriously sunny Eversley this morning. Under 15s and 9:30am starts do not normally go together well and this was evidenced by some of our bowling and fielding having won the toss and invited Eversley to bat on a greenish surface.
As it was the last
match all 10 HWCC players bowled with our two best bowlers,
James Darnell and Angus Brown, getting through four overs
each. Eversley reached an above par total of 161 in 20
overs that the guys chased down with gusto.
William Kerr was
taught to count 1,2,3,4,5,Yes! And made 43 from the first 21
balls of the innings with opening partner Tom Kirkpatrick
having faced just one delivery. The chase pivoted around
39 not out retired by Jake Meakin, I think a career best, and
other useful contributions not least from Tom Brooke-Webb who
hit a ball losing 6 in his 16 off 9 balls. 6 needed off
the last over to win and one off the last ball that went
through to the ‘keeper who ran Angus out. Match tied,
Cricket was the winner.
A fitting end to a
very enjoyable U15A season.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
