Egham U14s v Chertsey U13s (A)
The 12th July is a late date for first fixture of the season.... but the season is underway at last…
Egham opened the batting & after a few tight overs they got going. They scored 140-3 off their 20 overs (Ed Marsh 2-11) as two batsmen retired.
In reply, after losing an early wicket with only 13 on the board, Ed Marsh (29) & Ethan Austin (30) put on 80 for the 2nd wicket... but then as they retired, the wickets fell & they finished 12 runs short despite a valiant 14 from Josh Fyfe at the end.
East Molesey v U13s (A)
Talia Packham made her debut for this season - only young lady in the squad being looked after by the boys.
East Molesey won the toss and ended their innings on 131-5 (Ed Marsh 2-10). Chertsey ended just short on 121 all out (Ed Marsh a incredible 50* and Ethan Austin 12) in reply.
Windsor U14s v U13s (A)
What a game for our 1st game at Grove Road.... a game vs local rivals Windsor U14's....
Egham batted first & with some nice tight bowling (Ethan Austin 2-6 and Ed Marsh 1-7) and some great stoppages in the field by the whole team but notable ones from Mark Lemon & Dylan Pandya, restricting them to 108 off their 20 overs.
In reply, Chertsey batted at a comfortable pace & with Ed Marsh reaching 30* ably supported by James Pearson with 25... made their way through the overs.... but stumbled in finding runs at the end.... then with 5 needed off the last 2, Arthur hit a controversial 4 (ball stopped on the boundary but the fielder over the rope)... and the match went down to the last ball & excitement at its highest... Arthur dispatched the last ball for a 7 wicket win. Ed Marsh has now scored 110 runs since last losing his wicket for the Colts and has passed 150 runs so far this season.
An accomplished all round team performance.
