Wednesday, 22nd May

On Wednesday 22nd May the Glebe mixed team travelled to Thetford Grammar to play a game of kwik cricket. We lost the toss and they chose to field first. The first batting pair was Benjy and Giovanni. Benjy was the top scorer with 25 runs. Next Sammy and I batted but unfortunately we lost wicket. I would like to mention Eliza and Scarlett who worked really hard despite losing a few wickets. We scored 302 runs.

When we fielded we were very sharp and got an amazing wicket from Tabby. It all came down to the last over when we were still leading but unfortunately Thetford just came out on top, managing to score 309 runs. It was a very close match and my two girls of the game were Scarlett and Eliza for their ongoing effort. Well done team.

U13 Girls Cricket v Gresham’s

The U13 girls travelled to Gresham’s for our first hard ball match of the season. I won the toss and chose to field first. We were playing kwik cricket with a hard ball so everyone did batting and bowling in pairs. Alice got us off to a great start getting a wicket and Gresham’s only scored 4 runs from her 2 overs. All the other girls bowled well with Thaleia, Livi and Kitty also getting wickets. Gresham’s scored 267 in total.

After match tea it was our turn to bat. Gresham’s bowled a lot of wide balls in the first few overs but we still managed to accumulate quite a few runs. Myself and Livi were the top scoring partnership and with our 4th pair of Kitty and Lily performing strongly, we finished on 270 runs so we won by 3 runs.

Well done team, it was a great performance and we will keep improving. My Girl of the Game is Alice for being strong in both bowling and batting.

Then it was Jonny and he did some great bowling and in the second over got a wicket. We also had Archie Rowe and Theo Dix playing with us, and they both got us two wickets each. With some great stops from Matthew, we finished in the innings with their score at 86 runs with 6 out.
If we batted well we knew we could get to their score. Our opening batsmen were Joel and Tate. Tate got bowled and then Jack came in and for his second match and got out. It was then me into bat and Joel got bowled out on three. I was then into bat with Ethan, we were working well as a team but then Ethan got bowled out and I got caught. Well done to Archie, Theo and Josh for a good first U13s match.
A decent performance by some of our players but we must remember to move our feet when we play a shot.
My Man of the Match is Archie for bowling really well and taking two wickets.

Jaybe was the top scorer with 17 runs including three boundaries. We lost the match by 157 runs. My man of the match is Freddie H for his great catch.

U9 Rounders Match Report
Glebe House School v Downham Prep
Wednesday 15th May

We won the toss and chose to field first. Tabby was doing some great bowls which the opposition were struggling to hit. Our fielding was good and Maddie managed to stump someone out on third post. In the first innings Downham managed to get four rounders.
It was then our turn to bat. Issy and Lily both scored whole rounders and there were several half rounders from the rest of the team. At the end of the first batting innings we had scored seven, so we were in the lead.
In the second innings Isabella made some excellent play by managing to stump out two players at once whilst we were fielding. Downham went on to score three and a half rounders. When we came in to bat we again scored a total of seven.
The final result was therefore a win for Glebe with a score of fourteen rounders to seven and a half.
My girl of the game is Isabella for her great fielding and determination to do well in her first full match for Glebe.

U11 Rounders match v Kings, Ely
On Wednesday the 5th of May Fairstead House travelled to Glebe to play an U11 rounders match. It was our first match of the season, so we hadn’t had much practice but neither had Fairstead House. We started off batting and scored 14 half rounders and 2 whole rounders, 1 by Annabel and 1 by Gracie-Mae. Then we went into fielding and they had some good batters but with some good fielding we only let them score 6 rounders in total. At the end of the first innings the score was 9-6 to glebe. After changing the team slightly to allow everyone to play, we went into bat again with Gracie-Mae and Annabel both scored another rounder each and we scored 12 half rounders. Then Fairstead went into bat and we did some tight fielding, only letting them score 5 and a half rounders making the final score 17 – 11 and a half to Glebe. Well done team you all did well for the first match of the season, but my ‘Men of the Match’ are Gracie and Annabel for both scoring two rounders each and being accurate and alert in fielding. Well done team!

The ‘A’ team won the toss and chose to field first of all. Each team starts with 200 runs and loses five runs if a wicket is lost. We bowled well and managed to restrict them to scoring just 232 runs. When it was our turn to bat we made a strong start with Stanley and I scoring quite a few runs. Our best partnership was Benjy and Freddie K who scored 35 runs between them. We easily passed our target and reached 323, thereby winning the game by 91 runs. Well done team! I would like to mention Jaybe who bowled really accurately and Benjy who fielded well. My man of the match though goes to Freddie K who batted brilliantly and played a very good match overall.
