CHCC U11 Premiership Match - Back to winning ways

After two setbacks away in Sevenoaks, CHCC U11As showed great bouncebackability by overcoming Tunbridge Wells in a tense encounter at the Nevill.

Once again Cameron and Ted set the perfect tempo despite a slow wicket and outfield following the recent monsoon.  Both ended up retiring on 25 not out.  Whilst no other batsman made a major contribution, all played an important role in keeping the scoreboard moving along resulting in the village team setting their local urban counterparts a challenging score of exactly 100.

In reply, Harrison clean bowled the dangerous Z Webb first ball, although his opening partner B Dawkins batted extremely well in making his 25 and looks a rather special talent.  After his retirement it was a game of cat and mouse as the home side kept up or at least close to the required run rate.  Wickets fell steadily including a cool and calm run out effected by Ewan.  With 13 required off 2 overs Henry bowled an immaculate maiden which left Tunbridge Wells too much to do in the final over.

Result:  Castle Hill win by 5 runs.  Not a perfect performance by any means but the number of wides and no balls conceded was much improved.
