Two Losses for the U15s
1 Jun 2021 - Harry Robinson
U15s Premier League v. Tonbridge and Castle Hill CC
The Vine travelled to Tonbridge to face a combined TCC & CHCC side, including a number of county players who would not look out of place in the senior ranks! Having lost the toss, we took to the field first and were quickly on the back foot due to some excellent and aggressive batting, but also some wayward bowling at times. In the end we pegged them back, however they still posted an imposing 167/6 from their 25 overs. Will H was the pick of the bowlers with his left arm orthodox spin, also taking a wicket, Archie chipped in with a wicket whilst Jack and Hugo took two wickets apiece.
In reply Milan batted very well at the top of the order with an excellent 31. Harry took after the bowling in pursuit of the large target, with an aggressive 35 retired, however we became bogged down again in the middle overs and the task soon became 10+ per over. Toby struck the ball nicely towards the end for 22, however we ended up comfortably short with 137/6, a loss by 30 runs.
U15s West Malling League v. Kings Hill CC
We hosted a strong Kings Hill CC “A team” at The Vine today, including a number of District players in their side. The boys have an excellent account of themselves, scoring 105/6 from the 25 overs, with Lewie top scoring with 29 plus a very handy 15 not out from Thomas s’J towards the end.
In reply KHCC chased down the total 8 wickets down, in a nail biter…106/8 in the 23rd over. Wickets from Ben C (2), Milo (also 2) George and Lewis, as well as a run out by Lewie. A loss by only two wickets.
