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.

Wednesday 15th May U13 Cricket vs St Hugh’s

On Wednesday 15th May Glebe U13 boys played a match against St Hugh’s, I won the toss and chose to field first. We did come good bowling and Ethan and I opened the wicket. 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.
