Fernhurst Cricket Club Won by 62 runs

Match report 18 Jun 2017 : Under 11s too hot to handle for Chiddingfold

A scorching sun and lightening fast outfield greeted the U11s for this key match of the season. Chiddingfold had won all 4 of their games so far, and had taught Fernhurst a bit of a lesson last year too, so the scene was set for a tight match. Chiddingfold decided to bat, the umpires decided to have drinks every 10 overs, and a healthy Sunday morning crowd gathered to watch whilst sizzling in the heat.

Sam R made the most of the quick outfield to give Chiddingfold a superb start, scoring 18 of their 21 runs in the first 4 overs. Fernhurst came back during the middle portion with three wickets and some low scoring overs, before Ruben C hit a fine 20 from just 12 balls to take the total to 165 after 12 overs. Three more wickets would fall in the last overs, with L.Eden taking 2 for 4 from 2, putting the game into an interesting position as Chiddingfold finished on 179 for 7 after their 20 overs.

Fernhurst's openers, W.Westley (19) and G.Abrahams (10*), set off like they had a train to catch with 32 runs coming off the first 4 overs. The tone was set as the following pairs of batsmen each used the quick outfield to their benefit and pushed the quick runs, despite the temperature. Most reached double figures, but L.Eden (25*), J.Kidd (20) and H.Adey (16*) were the other top scorers. Ruben C would hit back for Chiddingfold with 3 for 14 from 3 overs, but Fernhurst still finished on 241 for 5 to win by 62 runs.

A thoroughly enjoyable match played in very good spirit by both sides, and we hope to arrange a return friendly for later in the summer.
