Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Boys-U10A vs  Solefield School
On: Wednesday, 22 May 2019
Venue: at Home

A good result from the U10A boys on a brilliant SR outfield. What a day to play cricket! The sun shining, runs being scored, wickets being taken and everyone involved in some way; some even finding the cricket balls in the nettles! We went in to bat first, with Josh and Oscar D getting us to a good start and Josh retiring on 27 runs. Unfortunately Oscar D was bowled cheaply. A very excited Eddie B came to the crease and scored another unbeaten 27 runs off 20 balls. Having our two main sloggers off the pitch meant that the run rate slowed down slightly but it was encouraging to see that our hard work in batting was paying off! Freddie S showed off some of his majestic shots through the covers and one six over deep backward square into the nettles.

Solefield went into bat needing 130 runs to win. Having been struck for 4 off his second ball of the over, Ethan H decided to bowl one short and Jacob J did the rest with a simple catch. Some excellent bowling figures for many but Felix E was outstanding, with 2 overs 1 for 2; and Alexander J 2 overs, 2 for 6. What let us down was the number of extras. An area to focus on.

Man of the Match for bowling: Alexander J

Man of the Match for batting: Eddie B

Man of the Match for fielding: Jacob J
