    The West Ilsley U13s team beat East Woodhay this evening to advance to the semi-final stage of the West Berkshire U13s Cup.  Playing at home, West Ilsley won the toss and elected to field.  Charlie Hamlin took 2 quick wickets in his second over, with Tim Fowler also taking two wickets in his first two overs, to leave the visitors reeling at 21 for 5 after 7 overs.  They consolidated well, however, with an 8th wicket partnership worth 35 runs to steer them through to a full 20-over innings of 75 runs for 9 wickets.  Dylan Teague bowled two maiden overs and ended up with figures of 4 runs for 1 wicket off 3 overs.

    In reply, although West Ilsley lost an early wicket, we were always well ahead on the required run rate.  Tim scored 16 runs (including 3 fours in succession) before being bowled, and Charlie scored an impressive 22.  Adam Ryan (not out 17) and Colin Sinclair saw the team through to the required target.  The final score was 78 for 3 off 12.4 overs, meaning a solid 7 wicket win with 7 overs to spare.

    West Ilsley will face either Shinfield or Emmbrook & Bearwood in a semi-final to be played by Sunday 3 June.

    The West Ilsley U13s side has won their first game of the season, beating Kidmore End in a second round match of the Berkshire Youth Cup for their age group to advance into the quarterfinals (their first round game was a scheduled bye).

    West Ilsley batted first and scored a total of 138 for 8, maintaining an excellent run rate despite the regular loss of wickets.  Charlie Cramp retired on 30, and Josh Willson was 21 not out.  Josh and Hallam Kelly really anchored the innings during the middle overs and ensured that wickets were well in hand for the end of the innings.

    In reply, Kidmore End batted solidly, but their run rate was never up to the required level, as they finished their innings after 20 overs on 115 for the loss of only one wicket.  Two of their batsmen retired.  Adam Ryan took the only wicket for West Ilsley, clean bowling one of their openers, and Jonty Sugden and Tim Fowler bowled the last three overs, conceding only 9 runs in total.

    There is plenty to work on for West Ilsley for their next game, as there were a number of catches missed during their fielding innings.

    But it was a good, solid start to the season, and a brilliant morning in the bright and hot sunshine.

    Pre-season working party
    This will be Saturday 7th April. There is work to do to get the pavilion ready and as well as outside work like setting up the nets and cutting and strimming (weather permitting). If you can spare an hour or two to help it would be appreciated and the more people who come,the quicker we can get done.

    Our groundsman is taking care of the square preparation so we will not have to do this.

    I look forward to seeing you in the near future
