Bagshot U8 269-3 lost to Valley End Vikings U8 296-2 by 27 runs
The U8 development squad ventured to local rivals Valley End Vikings on a lovely sunny Sunday morning. Starting with 7 against 10, George followed my lead on Saturdays and duly lost the toss, the home side batting first. Each pair batted 3 overs each due to number of players, the hosts pairs steadily accumulating runs but we also claimed a couple of wickets in a good fielding performance.
In reply we couldnt quite hit the boundaries that Valley End did and ended up 27 runs short, only losing 3 wickets in the process.
The 3 extra fielders made all the difference when stopping the runs, so all in all a very good effort by all.
Thanks to Jeff for scoring and Sadiq for the photography.
Team as follows: Joshua Cormier, Henry Dodds, Rhys Edwards, Zaara Norat, Devan Sawhney, George Sleight, Josh Mears, Oliver Rudd.
Please note Sundays match against Chertsey has been cancelled due to clash with U9 match on Sunday.
Valley End CC - Under 8 Mini Vikings won the toss and decided to bowl.
