Inter-club Hat-trick

U12 third inter-club game - August 2018

The third Under 12 inter-club match took place at Radfield Hill on Friday 17th August.    Skipper Fergie Conway won the toss and invited Simeon Laslett’s team to bat first.

Everyone chipped in with runs throughout the innings and all bowlers shared the wicket haul with Simeons team ending up on 265 for 8.

At mid point of the innings Cameron Lynch was poised to take a hat-trick but just failed to do so on his third delivery.

Fergie’s team all batted sensibly but lost wickets at regular intervals due to some impressive run outs and catches.    Again after 9 overs Daisy Conway was also poised to take a hat-trick but her third ball just missed off stump so denied her of her chance.

With the light fading fast and the last pair at the crease it was decided to only bowl spin which was a bit alien to some of the quicker lads and did help to complete the match with Fergie’s team get within reach of the total.

So with one ball remaining and 1 needed to draw and 2 runs to win Fergie Conway and Raphael Fontanelli managed to scramble 2 leg byes and snatch a victory

A good night of cricket enjoyed by colts and parents alike

Well done to all who took part on the night.
