Amesbury boys U8D’s cricket vs Lanesborough U8D’s
Score: Amesbury 298-1, Lanesborough 256-3
With a week of sun the cricket seems well and truly underway and today was a great example of the progress made. Amesbury opened the batting and where in previous weeks singles have been hard to come by there was some good progress. The opening pair set us off at a great pace and the following pairs didn’t let slip with all boys contributing.

The Lanesborough boys found it a challenge to field some firm shots through the off side especially. With a big total on the board Lanesborough came out to bat and were instantly faced with some challenging bowling. Bowling is never easy and it is great to see the boys progress in this area. When Lanesborough did get bat to ball they struggled to hit a gap as the fielding was very impressive with 3 run outs and lots of runs saved. In the end it was a convincing win and one all can be proud of.

Under 8A Rounders v St. Swithun’s

Won 21 1/2 – 8 1/2

Batter of the game: Libby
Fielder of the game: Jess

A fantastic game today for the U8A team. Although still very new to the game, you would have thought you were watching a seasoned and experienced team today. The girls made brilliant, intelligent decisions in the field as they played a steady game. Libby commanded the game well as bowler, while Annie supported her beautifully at backstop. St. Swithun’s hit the ball confidently, yet managed to score very little, thanks to Jess and Amelia’s quick fielding retrieval at second post and second deep. Poppy, Anya and Tilly also fielded well too and we started to see some good communication too.

As we went in to bat the girls came into their own. They connected superbly and before long we were adding to the scoresheet thanks to some great hits from Annie, Libby, Jess, Anya and Poppy. While excellent ‘risking’ also saw us gaining fantastic half rounders from Tilly and Amelia. There was a steep learning curve for a number of the girls though as they out-run themselves without watching where the ball was.

Despite St. Swithun’s having a much more confident second innings, Amesbury confidently finished the game 21 1/2 – 8 1/2 in the lead.
Very well done to you all girls!

U8B Cricket vs Lanesborough

Score: Won

The U8Bs we eager for victory from the first ball bowled. They bowled consistently and although did not manage to pick up too many wickets, with some excellent fielding on a very small pitch, they managed to limit Lanesborough to 316-1.

When Amesbury went into bat, it was clear they meant business. All batsmen displayed some confident and aggressive shot selection and for the first time this season multiple boundaries were scored including several 6s!!

Lanesborough were unable to contain the flurry of runs and Amesbury raced through to 334-1 to take the win.

A superb effort by the whole team and a thoroughly deserved victory.

U9 A Amesbury v St. Swithuns
lost 10 – 5
Batter of the match: Maisie
Fielder of the match: Millie
Lady of the match: Florence

It was a lovely afternoon to play rounders and St. Swithuns were a strong team giving our U9 A a competitive match this week.
The match moved along quickly with not too many no balls for either team. Amesbury batted first and unfortunately two players were out by being caught by the backstop. However Amesbury managed to score 5 rounders from two short innings and should be proud of the way in which they improved their fielding skills during the match.
