Fernhurst Cricket Club Fernhurst U11 Falcons v Grayswood on Fri 13 May 2016 at 18:00
Fernhurst Cricket Club Lost by 30 runs

Match report U11s frozen out by Grayswood

A final friendly, before the league matches start, saw Grayswood visit Fernhurst for an evening fixture. Falling temperatures saw many spectators retreat to the warmth of the bar, and lead to several fielders sporting very unwieldy & untraditional wear as enormous jumpers were borrowed from parents.

Grayswood batted first and several of their batsmen playing some very mature drives to bring up a very healthy total of 116 for 4. Fernhurst's bowlers struggled to find their lines, with 20 wides boosting the Grayswood total, but Joe Skelton lead the way again with 2 wickets for 9 runs in 2 overs, whilst captain Jack Kidd and Matthew Stevens also took wickets.

Fernhurst's innings traded in singles, rather than boundaries again, but the quick singles didn't flow as freely this week due to tight close fielding from Grayswood. Skelton showed that he can bat, as well as bowl, with a top score of 8*, whilst Louis Eden, Ned Freeborough, Finlay Stronge and Harry Adey also all finished unbeaten. Aided by 25 Grayswood wides, Fernhurst finished on 86 for 7.

So, a few things for the coaches to work on, but good experience for so many of the squad members to have played a competitive match before the league season starts.
