Hanley Castle and Upton vs BGCC under 10ís


Barnards Green U10ís traveled to play the in form Hanley Castle and Upton.  Ryan Scullion won the toss and asked Hanley to bat.  Spring and Bottomley were quick to hit anything wide and were assisted by a large number of wides.  The Hanley and Upton players continued to play with freedom and ran between the wickets excellently.  The Greens bowling was not at the standard of the previous game as was shown by the 63 runs conceded in wides.  Hanley Castle and Upton finished on 309 in their allotted 16 overs.  Chris Shuard with a direct hit run out was the only Green fielder to inflict a wicket.  In reply Chris Jeffrey started well with some excellent leg side shots and was unbeaten after his 4 overs.  However the Green lost wickets regularly and were always around the 200 mark.  Ryan Scullion and Joe Churchill then came to the wicket as third pair and managed to restore some order to the Greens batting display.  Scullion was unbeaten and played some pleasant shots around the wicket.  Churchill struck the ball fiercely, taking 3 consecutive 2ís off county bowler Will Chambers on the long boundaries.  The final pair managed to ensure the Greens total stayed above 200 but the Green were resigned to a large defeat.  They will hope to learn from the game and really work hard on their bowling and fielding, which let them down on this occasion.  Man of the match was Ryan Scullion, who bowled the only wide less over and was unbeaten with the bat, although U9 player Joe Churchill again proved himself to be one of the teamís strong holds.  Thanks to Junior Sponsor Inline Engineering.
