Weekend May 7-8
The under 13s played a friendly against the East Area boys under 11 team
and unfortunately lost by 16 runs. The boys scored 145 while we reached
129. I have been told there were some good performances by all the
players and all of them are up for their first County Championship match
this Saturday against Kent.
The under 15s started their County Championship with a good win against
Middlesex. Sussex won by 6 wickets. We won the toss and decided to bowl
first and bowled Middlesex out for 103 off 24.5 overs, with notable
bowling performances from Megan Janman who took 3 for 16 off 4.5 overs,
Holly Boarer 3 for 10 off 4 and Alicia Caillard 2 for 12 off 4. However
like last week there is one weakness we have to address, we gave away 32
We reached the total in 26 overs with Abi Freeborn scoring 32 , Lois
Peake 16 and Abi Byrne 12 not out.
A great start for the under 15s campaign for the County Championship.
