Mixed Results for the U15s in their First Fixtures of 2021
5 May 2021 - Harry Robinson
The Premier League side hosted Linden Park at The Vine. SVCC set a competitive total of 159/6 from the 25 overs (Harry House 35 ret., Milan Escarcega 28, Matt Dickerson 21). Unfortunately, we were just unable to defend the total as LPCC hit 160/7 from 24.2 overs, The Vine going down in a tight one (Jack Overton-Fox 3 wickets, Rohan Brown 2 wickets).
We’ll be focusing the bowlers on bowling their stock ball (wicket to wicket) more frequently at training in weeks to come, 37 extras being the difference between the two sides, plus boundary balls at least once an over. None-the-less, good to get underway in 2021.
The West Malling League side played our local rivals, Holmesdale, at Montreal Park. A comprehensive victory ensued, with SVCC batting first and posting an imposing 225 (Basty Walker 62 having retired earlier, Lewie MacPherson 35 ret., Joseph Oldfield 35 ret. Bruno Millward 28). Holmesdale were never in the chase and were bowled out for 63 from 15.1 overs (Sophia Harper 3 wickets, Jamie Wishart 2 wickets).
