Carter’s crew – July 2018 U12 Inter-club

On a very hot balmy evening at Radfield Hill on Friday 6th July the second under 12 Inter-club game took place.   Captains Jacob Carter and Finn Taylor did the toss and Taylor elected to bowl first.

Ben Gunner and Jacob Carter opened the batting and tee’d off from word go smashing the ball to all parts of the ground and ending up on 41 runs after their 4 overs but had lost 4 wickets of which 3 were to the bowling of Tom Gunner.

Less explosive but steady batting from the other 3 pairs saw Jacob’s team finishing on a respectable 268 for the loss of 9 wickets.

Tom Gunner and Samuel Clark followed suit by opening the innings and hitting plenty of boundaries and finishing on 48 for the loss of one wicket after their four overs at the crease.

Steady batting followed and the game ebbed and flowed with no quarter given from both teams.   With one over remaining, and with Finn Taylor’s team on 275, Will Foster run in and dismissed George Ward through a brilliantly taken catch by young Tom Flannagan at deep point which set the game up for a tense finish.

It was left to Hayden Gear to play out the last 3 balls and keep the score on 270 to win the game for the Taylor team at the close of play

A good night out for all players and parents alike – well done to all involved
