Bagshot CC U8s vs Englefield Green U8s Sunday May 14th 2017
Englefield Green CC 220-8 vs Bagshot CC 246-4 in the WSYCL U8 Development League.
Bagshot Park welcomed visitors Englefield Green in my first game as Under 8s coach. A lovely sunny day after overnight rain, Colts Manager Mike White and Ground manager Jeremy Davis had the ground looking a picture for our 10am start. Both sides fielded mixed age groups, from 5 to 8 years old, and we matched them well with the help of the Englefield Green coach.
Bagshot won the toss and decided to let our visitors bat first. 16 overs per side pairs cricket rules were applied.
The Baggies bowling attack managed to snare 8 wickets and restrict the Englefield Green batters to 20 runs, the match highlight was the catch at midwicket from Devan, the pure shock on his face a picture.
In reply Bagshot made 246 for the loss of only four wickets, George top scoring with a couple of fours and a magnificent six.
A very enjoyable opening game, players from both sides contributing and the parents supporting both teams well.
Thanks to Jeff Dodds for scoring.
BCC 8 were as follows.
Anay Ghandi, Rhys Edwards, Henry Dodds, Zaara Norat, Devan Sawhney, Rian Sawhney, George Sleight, Jonathan Dodds.
Next match away at Valley End Sunday June 4th 10am start.
