Another pairs match and another super fielding performance kept our opponents’ score down effectively. Wicket takers were: Henry E, Timothy, Ralph (in his first appearance for the A team!), Freddie R, Eddie & Will. Some were bowled, Sam fielded smartly and ran someone out, William and Freddie R both took clean catches and Freddie N behind the stumps snapped up an edge very safely. We batted carefully and I was pleased to see the boys communicating with each other more and backing up alertly this week – our focus in practice sessions recently. Freddie R, Eddie, Morgan and Freddie N found the boundary ropes with some cracking shots. Debutants Harry S and Ralph both selected shots judiciously and slotted in well to the team.
