Report on first U10 match of the season v Knotty Green by Manager Charlie Lowe
After the preceding cold and rainy week, the sun decided to shine for our first game of the season against Knotty Green. Captain Daniel Baker won the toss and elected to bat.
The team batted well overall and it was pleasing to see a lot of good, straight bats. Shot of the game was from Joshie Maggs, who hit a 4 to square leg off his first over, only for it to be called a dead ball (through no fault of his own!). Another four did follow in the Joshie’s final over and additional boundaries were scored by Guy Saunders, Daniel Baker and William Buckley. There was some tenacious batting from Oscar Nelson and Joseph Boundy, neither of whom lost a wicket. While we need to work on our running between the wickets, we should be encouraged by the batting performance overall.
When it was our turn to bowl, wickets were picked up by James Bonsall and messers Saunders, Baker and Buckley (a cracking caught & bowled). Some tight bowling from Oscar Nelson & Daniel Lowe helped peg the opposition back. When it came to the last over, we were only 5 runs behind, so it was all to play for. However, their last batsman was very good, protected his wicket and scored some runs to take the match out of reach. It was a pleasing fielding display too, with plenty of talk and encouragement in the field, and some great stops, chases and throws.
Report on U10s match v Gerrards Cross Bears on Tuesday 28th May 2019 by Manager Charlie Lowe
Result: Gerrards Cross Bears won
GCCC: 335 runs (1 wicket down) / CSGCC: 211 runs (6 wickets down)
With half-term week upon us already, tonight’s game featured players from four different age groups – U8s, 9s, 10, and 11s. This included debuts for Jack Bernstein and Rayan Konkader from the U8 cohort. Not only was it their first ever game of cricket, but a hardball game at that. Well done Jack and Rayan. You stood up to some good bowling and gave a very good account of yourselves.
With the home team lacking players at the start, CSGCC did the right thing and went out to field first. Captain Daniel Lowe told me that he was going to field first anyway, so it didn’t matter!
Unfortunately, our bowling performance only saw us take one wicket, and the GX batters played some excellent shots. This resulted in GX amassing a huge total of 335 runs. However, the boys showed a lot of resilience, with a particular highlight being Daniel Baker’s diving save in the outfield to stop a certain four.
After the break (which included spare sandwiches for the umpires), Joshie Maggs and Oscar Nelson strode out to bat. The opposition bowlers were good, meaning it was difficult to get the ball away. But, calling between the wickets this time was improved. A number of batsmen seemed to have realised that there are more runs on offer if we call early and run the first run fast(ish)! Sadly, we couldn’t match the oppositions’ strike rate but everyone from both sides played the game in a very positive spirit.
Finally, thank you to Joe and Billy from the U11’s for turning out for the U10s. You made it possible for us to maintain the fixture and you hit some good shots as well.
Well done to all and thanks as always to the parent helpers.
Report on U10s match v Beaconsfield Strikers on Friday 14th June 2019 by Manager Charlie Lowe
he past 5 days saw more than double the average rainfall for June hit the UK. However, once again the sun shone on the CSGCC U10s as we achieved our first win of the season. And a convincing win at that.
After losing the toss and being put into bat, the opening pair of Daniel Lowe and Oscar Nelson batted a solid first four overs, and despite losing wickets, this included a couple of excellent 4s hit to square leg by Oscar, and some excellent calling & running between the wickets.
Captain Joshie Maggs and Joseph Boundy were in next, and despite some suspect calling, managed to keep the run rate up with another cracking 4 from Joshie. Shot of the day came from Joseph – the best forward defensive stroke I have seen from any U10 all season!
Some wayward bowling followed from Beaconsfield, meaning the remaining batters couldn’t easily get the ball away, but credit to all of the boys as no further wickets fell and we ended up 251 for 6.
In the field, Joshie was quick to assert his authority on the field placings and the defence of our total was on. EVERY player bowled straighter than I have seen all season and this is why we won. Wickets were picked up by Oscar (3), Rayan (1), Guy (2), Ollie (2) & Daniel (1). We even got a couple of run outs – our fielding is improving.
We were a player down today, so thanks must go to the players from the opposition who fielded for us. This is especially the case for the young Beaconsfield lad who ran one of his own batters out – we compromised and only deducted 3 runs for that one!
Well done team. You gave a very good account of yourselves tonight. As this was our first home game, even more thanks than usual must go to the parent helpers. Amongst other things, you scored, made drinks, marked out boundaries and fed ravenous U10s between innings. Thank you.
