 BGCC Under 10s vs Worcester Nomads


Barnards Green under 10's played host to Worcester Nomads on sunday in an exciting encounter that went right to the wire. batting first, Nomads played sensibly without giving away wickets and amassed 277 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets with a net score of 262 helped by 27 extras mainly in wides.  Anthony Eyles picked up two wickets and Nathan Hall one with Joe Oakley bowling a very good line conceding just one run in his two overs. In reply, Ben Alamutu (4) and Anthony Eyles (16) got the Green off to a solid start and then Robert Wilson (6) and Joe Oakley (6) took the score to 250 with some audacious running between the wickets.  Third pair Nathan Hall (2) and Anton Schwartz (1) batted steadily but lost one wicket taking the score to 260.  Last pair skipper Max Middlebrook who had marshaled his team excellently and 8 year old Bily Dorrofield batted sensibly before both lost a wicket in the final over, but two boundaries gave the Green hope, but with 3 needed off the last ball it proved just too much and Nomads went home victorious by just 2 runs.  An excellent game enjoyed by all involved.
