Glebe finished the season with an impressive win at home against Beeston in which the team played superbly. Joel (31no) and Matthew (14) got us to a great start with Matthew departing with our score at 66-2. With some explosive hitting lower down the order, we got to 95 runs with the bat and bowled out Beeston for 64 with Ethan, Freddie G and Charlie being the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets each. Theo and Ned also bowled well and Matthew who had a fine game as wicket keeper claimed the last wicket with the final ball of the match. Well done everyone on a super performance!
UNDER 9 KWIK CRICKET V ST. HUGH’S
Wednesday, 26th June
Last Wednesday we played two matches against St. Hugh’s. I won the toss for the ‘A’ team and chose to bat first. Each of our pairs ran well between the wicket and we managed to score 271 runs. We were winning the match until the last St. Hugh’s pair came to the wicket. They overtook our total and scored 308 runs, winning the match by 37 runs. My man of the match was Stanley for his great all-round play, including catching someone out from his own bowling. Well done team!
Although the ‘B’ team lost this match we put up a good fight. Joshua was my man of the match for bowling lots of good balls and for his great wicket. We scored 238 runs and St. Hugh’s got 272. We lost the match by 34 runs. We kept trying against a strong team. Well done everyone!
