Controlled batting display sees under 15’S to victory at Horspath

The under 15’s notched up a solid win on a beautiful evening at Horspath, thanks in part to a fine measured batting performance.

Aston Rowant won the toss and put Horspath into bat. Opening bowlers Sam Chown and Rafe Mason did a good job containing Horspath, with Sam removing one of the openers in the first over.

Horspath then accelerated the scoring, helped by a fast outfield. The remaining opener, A. Turner retired after reaching his 50 and Horspath went on to make 133 for the loss of 4 wickets in their 20 overs.

In reply to what seemed a reasonable score, Aston Rowant openers Oli Shaw and Sam Chown always kept the pressure on the home team. Oli retired on 50 whilst Sam went on to make 34. Carrick Dunbar (15 not out) and Rafe Mason (17 not out) continued moving the score along before victory was secured in the eighteenth over.

The next game sees the return fixture against Horspath, to be played at Aston Rowant on Monday, 26 June.

Team for the Tiddington game complete with Barney the dog!


After several weeks without a game due to cancellations, rain and holidays, the U15’s played their second match of the season at Tiddington.

Tiddington were unable to field a full team, but some sporting decisions from Aston Rowant allowed both sides to play out their full 20 overs.

With Aston Rowant batting first, openers Oli Shaw and James Coles set about their task in customary style with some hefty blows. Both retired early, with Oli on 35 and James on 38. Sam Chown kept the score moving with 21, Aston Rowant eventually finishing on 135 for 4.

There was some creditable bowling from Tiddington, particularly from Kitchin who took 3 for 19 off 4 overs.

In reply, Tiddington fell short on 81 for 7, with McKay scoring 21 not out.

Apart from James Coles who was keeping wicket, all the Aston Rowant players bowled two overs each. Harvey Diab managed the best figures with 3 wickets for 5 runs, narrowly missing out on a hat trick.

Mention must also be made of Jonty Atkins from the under 11’s, who not only fielded well but also took a wicket in his 2 overs, ending with figures of 1 for 7.

Next up is a re-arranged match at Horspath, who currently head the league table.

A cold and gloomy evening at Aston Rowant saw the U15’s first match of the season against Tiddington. Due to the poor light, the match was reduced to 15 overs a side.

Aston Rowant won the toss and bravely put Tiddington into bat. Tiddington’s opening batter, Elliot, managed to push the score along aided by the extras total. James Coles took the first two wickets before Sam Chown removed Elliot on 46. Sam then completed his hatrick to leave the visitors on 89 after their allotted 15 overs.

Oli Shaw and James Coles opened the batting for Aston Rowant and quickly set about their task. Both remained at the crease until the end of the innings, with James scoring 27 not out and Oli hitting the winning runs and reaching his 50 in the 9th over.

Well done to all the team for getting a win in difficult conditions.
