Pangbourne & Whitchurch 218 - 8 WICC 282 - 1
Another great team effort where everyone contributed to a conclusive win against Pangbourne & Whitchurch to put WICC U12 girls at the top of our tournament group.
Juliet © and Daisy scoring massively with 38 between them, Lottie and Katie with three wickets apiece and excellent fielding from Lucy and Amelia. We also played a couple of friendly matches against an older girls team from Thatcham.
We won the first game comfortably, and were thrashed in the second.
We now look forward to the BYCL finals in September.
The West Ilsley fete is on so there is no cricket this Friday
A cracking U15 contest v the mighty Finchampstead is always mouthwatering and the crowd were not dissapointed. Batting first West set 103 on a variable wicket and it looked a very good score. Main contributions from Tom Scriven, Peter Healy, Zac Leonard aand Tom Swann although all chipped in. Finch started well flying along with Predgen and Kirkwood as only Peter Healy managed stem the tide. Zac Leonard brought control with some fine off spin but the game remained in the balance. Great catches from Arty, Olly Pocock, Luke Parkes, Tom S and with the ever switched on Adam Barnes behind the stumps an exciting finish was on the cards with the advantage to Finch. Enter sam Bebbington with his intelligent offdspin who bowled West back into the game taking 4 for 13 and bowling the last over with Finch requiring 3 off the last ball. A beautifully dipped delivery foiled the advancing bat who was stumped. Great win and huge team performance.
Match Report – Under 9’s
WIN SOME, LOOSE SOME!
The Under 9’s have played two matches this past week firstly against Purley-on- Thames and yesterday against Falkland.
The match against Purley proved very close indeed with both teams neck and neck after 12 overs each. Unfortunately, Purley proved the better team on the day and edged ahead by 9 runs, winning with 280 for 4 against our 271 for 7. Wides proved a problem for us and we only managed to take 4 wickets – Matthew Simms and George Wilson taking a wicket each and George also took a great catch.
Batting was pretty average with the exception of Colin Sinclair who batted a fantastic 22 runs.
The match against Falkland was another story. We won comfortably with 270 runs against Falkland’s 226 runs. Colin Sinclair and Mark Taylor (the kamikaze duo!) batted first, taking advantage of some poor fielding, with some heart stopping runs between the wickets! Jonty Sugden, George Gardiner and Colin Sinclair scored 13 runs each with Jonty hitting an excellent 6 and George three 4’s.
Adam Ryan, on his debut match bowled really well, with only 1 run taken off his over and there were solid bowling performances from Captain Josh Willson, Charlie Cramp and George Wilson.
West Ilsley Under 9’s remain second in the League with an important match against Pangbourne next week.
