Unders 9 Boys in Good Showing at Corsham Festival
The U9s boys competed at the Corsham U9 cricket festival last Sunday. The team did really well, playing 3 matches in total. They narrowly lost the 1st match by 6 runs, were comprehensively beat in the second and had a strong victory in the third match.
All of the players did really well and by the 3rd game their individual bowling had improved significantly and there was some good batting, especially by a couple of the older boys who paired up for the last game.
On the batting front, the boys overall did well and with a little bit of encouragement started to understand the concept of running hard between the wickets and looking for every opportunity to get a run, rather than worry about losing a turn to face a ball.
Thanks for letting me have the opportunity to umpire, I thoroughly enjoyed it and wish the boys s great season. All the best.
Team: Liam Davidson, Felix Bailey, Finlay Davis, William Cheetham, Murray Davison, Freddie Fowle, Kai Methley, Miles Hall, Samuel Hardy.
