Farnham U12 Blackcaps v Fernhurst Cricket Club Under 12 on Wed 16 May 2018 at 18:00
Fernhurst Cricket Club Won

Match report On a freezing evening, more akin to March than mid May, the Fernhurst U12's kicked off their 2018 league campaign with a tricky away fixture against the Farnham Black Caps. Fielding first, some tight bowling from openers Kidd and Eden kept the scoring low but wickets were hard to come by. The breakthrough came in the 8th over with Ned taking a wicket, quickly followed by two more from the impressive Henry Eden. In the latter stages of the Farnham innings the run rate increased, seeing the Black Caps finish on 104 for 6. Other Fernhurst wicket takers were Wilby, Max and Ollie. A quick break and Fernhurst were out to bat, 105 looking like an achievable score for last years Div 2 champions.......however what followed was a collapse more akin to England than our U12' the 7th over Fernhurst stood at 36 for 7, with Henry Eden being the only not out batsman in his alloted 4 overs, retiring on 9. Max Durrant batting at 9 also retired as more wickets fell. When Henry came back out to bat with 8 wickets down Fernhurst required in excess of 40 to win and defeat seemed inevitable. What followed from Henry, the youngest member of the Fernhurst team, was incredible - batting with poise and composure he guided Fernhurst to victory with overs to spare, scoring 44 not out which consisted of no less than 10 4's. Victory though wouldn't have been possible had it not been for Max Durrant who kept the other end steady whilst Henry set about the Farnham attack, so great praise should go to Max as well as Henry. An unlikely victory which helped warm the freezing Fernhurst supporters!
