Twyford U9 v Bishops Waltham U9
Venue : Swanmore Cricket Ground
Date : 8 th May 2016
Great day. Great Venue. Great Team Spirit. Great support. Great Win.
Jacob Nash captained the team for the first game. Bishops Waltham won the toss and put Twyford in to bat. The Twyford innings started with Robbie and Dan who batted well and kept the scoreboard ticking. Next in was Conor and Jacob who increased the scoring rate well, with Jacob in particular who hit 3 powerful boundaries. Miles and Rowan were in next and kept scoring. Tom and Rohan finished off strongly giving Twyford a fantastic 271 for only 5 wickets , a great start.
The Innings break and some delicious snacks were enjoyed – thanks to Sam and Andrew of Bishops Waltham for the great hospitality!
After the break it was time for Twyford to take to the field and defend their 271. Rohan opened up and was successful immediately, what a great start ! Twyford fielded and bowled really well. Everyone backing each other up and there was loads of encouragement from all team members (and the side lines – thanks Twyford parents, the support was fantastic). The bowlers all bowled well with accuracy and the fielding for the beginning of the season was fantastic and spirited, so much so that Twyford claimed 5 run outs with Conor getting a direct hit. Tom, Rohan (2) and Dan the others to get run outs. Special mention goes to Jacob for taking a great catch at a crucial time of the game and also to Tom and Rohan for both getting 3 wickets each. Dan finished the innings off with a very economical over leaving Bishops Waltham 30 runs short of the target. Importantly, and impressively, Twyford took 11 wickets!
This was a great start to the season and there were a lot of positives to take from the game. Looking forward to St Cross as our next fixture.
