Baggies U15s fall just short of Chobham
Chobham 147-8 off 20 pip Bagshot 144-2 off 20
First game of the season, saw our U15's take the field against Chobham after losing the toss.
Impressive spell by Chris F and Josh F to begin with against a determined Chobham side. Chobham then took the advantage in the middle overs and got to 97-3 after 10 overs, before being wrestled back in the later overs. Chobham finished on 147 for 8 after 20 hours.
The team fielded pretty well, but a couple of coaching points there as we progress.
In reply, a solid start by James W (50*) and Ollie B. The Left/Right hand combination was working quite well. Without having to score boundaries - just by rotating the strike - they got to 70-1 off 9 overs.
In the middle overs, there was some determined bowling by Chobham, backed up by some excellent fielding - which helped Chobham save some key runs.
Bagshot needs 20 runs off the last 2 overs - which despite some excellent running - the Baggies just finished within touching distance (144 for 2 off 20).
For their first game - this was an excellent start and could have gone either way... Lets keep the games coming!
