The U11s played their first match of the season against Acle last night. It was overcast and extremely cold; typical.
Our team played well in parts with all players making some contribution to the match.
Acle’s final pair batted very aggressively and notwithstanding some good fielding and bowling allowed them to post a target of 80 after deductions.
Our batting got off to a flyer with big hitting from Harry Wells and Isabel Harris, but with the loss of three wickets.
Further wickets fell in the middle overs with some needless run outs brought on by the pressure of the target.
The final pair of Georgina Cohen and William Buxton batted with spirit and dedication but the task was well beyond them requiring fifty of four overs.
Acle won the match but there really was some reasons to be optimistic for the season ahead.
