Great Kingshill U13 v Holmer Green U13


Great Kingshill U13 v Holmer Green U13

Great Kingshill U13 entertained Holmer Green in a local derby on a beautiful summer evening. Great Kingshill batted first and made an excellent start with Will Stonehouse and Oscar Neil-Dwyer quickly adding 40 for the first wicket in less than 5 overs. Will was unlucky to be very well caught after a well struck on-drive for a bright 16, with Oscar going on to complete a very accomplished 30 before having to retire. The remaining batsmen maintained the momentum well, with 18 from Dinil and Oliver Holmes also playing very well to get to 32 before retiring. It only remained for some strong late innings batting from Alex Dunn and Jacob Mitchell (14 not out and 16 not out respectively) to get Kingshill to the very competitive total of 162 for 4 wickets after 20 overs.

After drinks and biscuits (many thanks Liz), Holmer Green started their innings and were very soon behind the required rate. Tristan van de Weg removed both openers, and together with tight bowling from Sam Allum, Tom Parker and Will Nettlefield, we had restricted the visitors to 56 for 3 after 12 overs. It was great to see 2 leg spinners in Tom and Will operating in tandem in the middle of the Holmer Green innings. Kingshill continued to bowl tightly for the remainder of the innings and we finally kept Holmer Green down to 86 for 5 wickets after 20 overs and won the match by a very impressive 76 runs. There were 2 wickets for Tristan, 1 for Tom, 1 for Jacob and 1 for Will Stonehouse....but all the bowlers did well. Catching was good, with a particularly impressive one handed catch by Oscar. Harrison was neat and tidy behind the stumps, only conceding 2 byes in the whole innings.

Well done to the whole team on an excellent start to the league season.
