Sunday 18th June 2017
West Surrey Youth Cricket League Development League Under 8 East
Weybridge Under U8 118
Stoke D’Abernon U8 94
Weybridge U8 won by 24 runs
Hot! Hot! Hot!
Thanks to Andrew K for this brief account of Sunday’s weather, and for this more extensive detail on the match…
Weybridge won the toss and elected to field on a hot and bouncy top deck. Weybridge bowled well without really threatening and stayed alert in the field despite the searing sun. Weybridge kept Stoke to 94 from 18 overs.
Biscuits and cold drinks were enjoyed by all.
Weybridge batted consistently and with Stoke bowling good lines the runs ticked over. Stoke were somewhat overenthusiastic in the fielding department with quite a few overthrows pinched by the visitors, much to the delight of their supporters.
Stoke’s bowling unfortunately let them down towards the end of the innings as Weybridge edged in front. Their two best batters took the additional overs at the end of the game and saw their team home.
The contest could have gone either way, but on this occasion the Weybridge were triumphant.
Stoke Man of the Match : Sam R. Punishing batting and good bowling

Mark Bullingham has also sent in these details of the Under 9s matches player over the weekend:
On Friday, our Lions lost to Ascot. Most of our boys had been playing in a cricket tournament all day so energy levels were low! Ascot had one outstanding cricketer who hit 28 and took several outstanding catches in the field. They batted first and got 298, we could only manage 244 in reply.
On Saturday our Leopards beat Esher in the Development League. Whilst the opposition was weak, this was our best performance ever in the field and we also batted strongly. We batted first and got 318. Esher could only manage 272. In particular Oliver K was outstanding.
On Sunday our Lions beat Camberley. Camberley posted 251, but we managed 265 with Rhys R hitting 16 runs at the end to win the game.
