U11A Cricket vs Seaford College
Score: Won
Glorious sunshine poured down on the Seaford wicket as they put Amesbury into bat. It must be mentioned at this point that flatter wickets have been found on freshly ploughed farmland!

Amesbury started well, and the score kept rising with bad balls being punished. For loss of only 2 wickets, Amesbury scored 171 of their 20 overs.

Seaford went into back and with some aggressive bowling from the start, they struggled to hit the ball off the square. Following some super work in the field and some excellent catches, Seaford only managed 80-8 of their 20 overs.

An awesome victory with plenty of excellent cricket.

Amesbury Under 11 B won by 10 wickets

On a lovely sunny afternoon in this idyllic setting, our captain, Charlie, skillfully won the toss and asked Seaford to have a bat. They posted a modest total of 59 off their 20 overs for the loss of 4 wickets. The bowling was shared around our whole team and everyone managed to bowl well with Charlie, Max, Zach and Sam being the pick of them. The Seaford batsmen did well to keep us out on a slightly treacherous wicket, but they didn’t have the shot-making ability to post a good score. So after the break it only took Alex and Max, our openers, 7.3 overs to make the runs. They both batted beautifully to see the game out, playing an array of attacking strokes and sending the ball over the rope nine times between them. Another good win. Well done to all!

1st XI Cricket v Seaford
166/3 beat 54 ao by 112 runs

Amesbury made the journey Seaford for their first away game of the season, and keen to improve on their performance from last week. We lost the toss and were immediately given the chance to make up for our previous batting performance. Tom and Henry started well, putting on 27 off the first 5 overs before the latter was dismissed. Ollie then joined Tom and these two put on a lovely partnership of 123 off just 70 balls, including a towering six from Ollie and some lovely shots from Tom straight down the ground. With 3 overs to play we started to up the intensity, and Tom was intent on reaching his deserved 100, but unfortunately was dismissed for a well earned 83. Ollie fell shortly after for a quickfire 39 off 33 balls, leaving Fergus and Jamie to push the score on to 166 from our 20 overs.
With our bowling attack, we knew that we could defend that total if we bowled to our plan. This is exactly what every one of our bowlers did, bowling good areas and taking wickets at regular intervals. The wickets were shared around with Henry, Jack and Max taking two wickets, and Oscar, Toby and Max L picking up one each. Elliot was due to bowl next, but unfortunately for him we dismissed Seaford inside 14 overs.
An overall commanding performance, spearheaded by a fine 83 off 59 balls from Tom. Well done to every player involved.

Amesbury U10 B v Pennthorpe at Pennthorpe

Lost: 10 – 8 rounders
Batter of Match: Sophie J
Fielder of Match: Jasmine J

The Amesbury team were full of high spirits and very excited for the match against Pennthorpe. Captain Isobel W won the toss and decided to field first. Jasmine J was the bowler and only threw a few no balls, Rebecca at backstop was quick to retrieve the ball and on 2 occasions was able to throw the ball to Amelia at 1st post and run out two of the Pennthorpe team in the first innings. Millie, Hattie, Sophie and Cecily made a good effort to field the ball into Ellie, Isabella and Jasmine but the Pennthorpe team had two big hitters who were able to score rounders with each hit. Unfortunately some miscommunication and dropped catches enabled Pennthorpe to score 10 rounders in the two innings.

In the batting innings Sophie J was very strong, she hit the ball hard towards 3rd deep and was able to score 2 rounders. Isobel W and Jasmine also made half rounders off some good hits and Hattie scored one rounder with some fast running and risk taking.

2nd XI Cricket v Seaford College
Amesbury 122/5 in 25 overs; Seaford College 110/9
Won by 12 runs
Report: Choosing to bat first we proceeded to shoot ourselves in the foot with the unfortunate skipper being run out without facing a ball whilst responding to a call which suggested too long in the sun. We managed, with the generous help of extras, to amass a competitive score, which didn’t look quite so competitive as Seaford raced to 44 off 6 overs. Two excellent spells were bowled in tandem which saw us claim 3 wickets for just 18 in the next 8 overs. It was exciting at the end with some rather sloppy ground-fielding donating an unnecessary 15 or so to the total. Generally, however, our 10 men won the game thanks to being much more accurate in bowling; we conceded just 5 wides and 3 no balls in 25 overs, an excellent and much improved effort, whereas our hosts had bowled 23 wides and 5 no balls.
It was a very enjoyable match, wherein all contributed in some way to victory. Well played, everyone.
