A beautiful sunny Sunday morning at Five Oak Green witnessed a really good performance from both of our two U9 teams – CH Lionhearts and CH Crusaders. The Capel CC tournament was our first of the year and our players made a fabulous start to the season.
Each team played 4 games winning 3 and losing 1.
Our teams were the two top performing teams in the mini tournament!
For the Lionhearts Robert Vizard excelled as Captain and all-rounder; with Alec Stephen a formidable big hitting batter and Henry Parton our stand out bowler. The whole team contributed very well with Ollie Paler a top performer in the field; plus Max Wakeham, Hugo Firmin, Oscar Anderson and Tom Hobbs helping the team to build some impressive batting totals.
Meantime for the Crusaders Harry Leach led the team with aplomb, bowling and batting well and taking a most spectacular one handed diving catch. Archie Steddon also put in a fine all round perfomance, Rafe Rayment, Aston Burford, Alex Alfageme and Samuel Bromley all bowled well, Ben Anderson played some lovely shots and Charlotte Ward and Felix West steadied the ship when batting, as wickets were tumbling around them.
