It finished as it started

May not be entirely true
So we reached the end of the road for our U17 players with a visit to our near neighbours Valley End. This journey probably started with a thumping defeat many years ago and it ended with a thumping defeat.
To be fair losing your two highest run scorers for ducks at the start is never good. James W, Josh B and Harrison all stepped up to the plate and ensured we got to a score that at least looks good on the scorecard. It was never enough though and to be honest we were not at our best in the field. Maybe if we snaffled the two dropped catches it may have been closer but in truth we were well beaten.
Thanks to Valley End for all the games in the previous years all played in the right spirit with colts playing with a smile on their faces. Good luck to all their U17 players in the future.
We may or may not have 1 game left and that is yet to be determined.
