Amersham U13 v Great Kingshill U13 - Bucks Cricket Board U13 Cup - 2nd Round

Great Kingshill U13s played their first match of the season against Amersham in the Bucks U13 Cup. Although an away fixture, the match was played at the picturesque Little Kingshill ground ... nearer for us to travel than the home team! Skipper Jacob Mitchell won the toss and inserted Amersham. Great Kingshill then bowled and fielded extremely well, restricting the opposition to 26 for 2 after 12 overs. The Amersham skipper then batted very aggressively and almost single handedly managed to extend the score to 90 for 6 off 20 overs. Highlights of Great Kingshill's bowling and fielding were 3 overs for 6 runs for both Will Stonehouse, and Tristan van de Weg, 3 overs 2 wickets for 2 runs for Oscar Neil-Dwyer and 3 overs 1 wicket for 8 runs for Alex Dunn. Other wicket takers were Jacob Mitchell and Dinil Arichchige and we some tidy spin from Tom Parker and Will Nettlefield. Harrison West did his usual tidy job behind the stumps, just conceding 1 bye. There was also some fine catching from Tom Parker (2), Dinil and James Timewell. Lewis Walls showed himself to be an energetic and enthusiastic outfielder in his first outing for the club.

When GKCC batted, we were always up with the required rate after a bright start from Will (Stonehouse), Oscar and Dinil. However, we kept losing wickets on a regular basis against a strong seam attack and found ourselves all out for 53 in the 14th over. Will (Stonehouse), Dinil and Jacob all made double figures with some nice shots.

So a bit to work on (especially the batting), but a good first outing against a team that is in higher division than we are. Well done to all.
