U9’s keep up winning streak!

The Under 9’s winning start to the season has continued. After a second 100+ run victory at Bledlow (debuts for Kaian Eaton and Tabitha Keane, top scorer with the bat Bertie Lee) came the altogether sterner test of MPC Academy.

MPC batted first. Niamh opened the bowling for AR with Ryan. Niamh’s first two overs conceded just the one wide – which gave us a great start to the game. Two wickets each for Ryan and Rocky (in two balls) restricted MPC to 262. A notable mention should go to Molly who played her first ever game of cricket – giving away just 9 runs in her two overs, without even having to resort to her , now infamous, cartwheel delivery. We hope to see that later in the season.

Molly and Niamh opened the batting and gave us a foundation for victory. George and Otto accelerated the run rate before Ryan and Rocky added a further 37 . Alfie and Austin steered us home, in the face of some ferocious MPC bowling,  for a 28 run victory.  Top Scorer – Ryan 15.

Next up the Haddenham festival, then Thame!
