 U17S OVERCOME DETERMINED OPPOSITION TO LIFT BRISTOL YOUTH LEAGUE KO CUP

MCC vs Thornbury U17s 76

Not for the first time this season, MCC U17s overcame opposition who were, on paper, stronger, to emerge victorious in the BYCL KO Cup Final on Sunday by 4 wickets ,against a determined Thornbury outfit at a sunny, but breezy, Parks home to Frampton Cotterell CC.

An early meet-up (Team manager’s OCD to the fore again) on Marshfield High Street and a quick change into the famous maroon and mustard ties saw a smartly-dressed U17s side arrive at FCCC a good 90 minutes before the scheduled start.
However, an error by a baggage handler necessitated an Assistant Team Manager having to race back to Marshfield for misplaced kit ,leaving Fin sweating on its arrival. This, coupled with some pre-match nerves, led to a less than perfect start when Marshfield won the toss and asked Thornbury to bat and the first 3 overs produced  9 wides.

MCC vs Thornbury U17s 40Early bowling changes then saw the team settle down and when Hamish removed the dangerous opener Daniel Lezar, and smart fielding from Oscar led to the run out of the other opener, Marcus Wormwell, Thornbury were 41 for 2 in the 7th over. Wickets then continued to fall at regular intervals and, when Jerm mopped up the tail, thanks in large part to some fine fielding and catching, Marshfield had restricted Thornbury to 106 all out from 18 overs.
Any doubts in the interval about whether we could chase down the total seemed to be allayed by a steady,intelligent, opening partnership between Chopper (23) and Jerm (40)and by the 10th over we had reached 74 for 0 and were daring to dream of victory. However, the departure of the openers in successive overs led to the loss of 3 further wickets in 11 balls for the addition of just 2 runs and, at 84 for 5 in the 14th, major doubts (and major nerves!) were kicking in all round, and a complete collapse seemed a real possiblity.  The pressure was relieved somewhat when Calum hit 3 boundaries in the 15th over and, although the tension was ratcheted up once again by tight bowling ACBR and stubborn resistance from Thornbury, another boundary saw us home with 8 balls to spare, to the delight of watching team-mates and the travelling Marsh Army.
It would be wrong to single out individual players, but credit to Jerm (his towering straight six will live long in the memory) and Chopper for their hugely important opening stand of 74; Jamie and Oscar for holding their catches; Cameron’s 3 wiickets in 2 overs (on a hat-trick in your next match, Cam!); and to Hamish (at just 13) for overcoming his earlier trepidation to return figures of 4-0-11-1 ,under pressure, in the middle of the Thornbury innings.
MCC vs Thornbury U17s 105The Umpires’ Player of the Match award went to wicketkeeper, Calum Burnstone, for his serious display behind the stumps, and for holding his nerve to hit the winning runs. The Achievement award went to Thornbury’s Jack Gillett for his valiant effort to drag them back into the match with the ball and set up a tense finish.


The team conducted themselves admirably on the day and, importantly, we avoided knowingly contravening  any  BYCL rules!
Post-match, the team adjourned back to the Club for to celebrate in their customary fashion with a Chinese takeaway, and a lively debate ensued as to whether the Treasurer would now release funds for a trophy cabinet? – unlikely!
Many thanks to the travelling supporters – Graham, Jane, Sarah, Chris (for the fantastic photos), Nick, Liz, Belinda, Anne, Douglas, Helen, George, Henry, TC, DJ, Dan – and big thanks to Andy for offering to score.
So , from an entry of 25 teams and over five rounds the lads, I think, surprised themselves and, unexpectedly, but deservedly, won the Cup!
In the final analysis, I think the fantastic team spirit made a huge contribution to their success. Congratulations to Will Pascall for his astute, sporting, and relaxed captaincy  and to everyone who has played for and supported the U17s this season.
It has been emotional!

Jonathan Burnstone, Team Manager
