A win over Kempsey saw our under 10s deservedly finish top of their league.
and they now progress into the semi final of the under 10s knockout competition.

Quote of the week...

Son:- "No, I read it in a Shane Warne book"
Marek's Marauders back to winning ways.
The Green sunday 2nds entertained top of the table Swindon on Sunday and came out victorious by 5 wickets.
Batting first Swindon got off to a disastrous start losing five early wickets for just 35 with Anschuman finding
a good line and picking up 4 wickets and 15 year old Mike Ellis bowling with good pace,
one, skipper Davies then dug deep and was well supported by Bull as they looked to rebuild the innings.
Despite early wickets the run rate was over 6 until the introduction of Jamie Longmore who bowled a good tight line
conceding just 24 runs off his 8 overs and was unlucky not to pick up wickets.
Sherliker and 15 year old Chris Freeman picked up a wicket a piece and Swindon did well to reach 204 after their 40 overs.
After an excellent tea, Green openers John Sherliker (65) and Dave Bayliss (18) got the Green off to an excellent start
on what was an excellent batting track which has been a feature of the season thanks to Roy Mayo.
When both openers departed Richard Wall (9) and Robin Longmore (22) looked to take the game on,
but Wall was adjudged caught behind and Longmore was joined by Chris Freeman who
worked the ball around well to give Longmore the strike before he was well caught on the deep midwicket boundary.
Anschuman strode to the wicket and took the game by the scruff of the neck striking 11 boundaries in a match winning knock
and when Freeman departed for a well worked 21, skipper Wajzer helped Anschuman to pass the victory target
to earn the Green a well deserved victory by 5 wickets.
Many thanks to match sponsors Malvern Independent Financial Advisors.
Burghill and Tillington returned to Worcester League cricket this season after some time in the Marches League.
At least one of our "veteran" members has prior experience of the Herefordshire side having toured there on
numerous occasions in the 90's. Strange how some people always seem to look the same. Remember this photo
was taken 14 years ago!
