U10A Cricket vs Highfield
Score: Won 123/6 v 113/9
Post exams the boys were ready for an afternoon out on the cricket pitch. Amesbury batted first and the top order put to the sword some ordinary bowling from Highfield. Their main opening bowler did restrict the run flow at times but any bad ball was generally punished. Boys were retired at 30 runs and we were able to get a total of eight boys in to bat during the 20 overs. During the final stages of our innings wickets did fall but the right game management of trying to score quickly was being applied.
The boys that did not bat opened the bowling and bowled their two overs at the beginning of the Highfield innings. We then managed to get everybody to bowl their two overs and it all came down to the last over, Highfield needed 13 from 6 balls. We were able to dismiss three batsman in this over and the jubilation of victory was experienced by Amesbury.

An awesome victory with plenty of excellent cricket.

2nd XI Cricket v Highfield
Amesbury 84/3 in 20 overs
Highfield 85/4 in 12.3 overs
Lost by 6 wickets
A glorious day and exams nearly over but wretchedly causing this to be a T20 rather than 25/25. We did not get enough runs to put real pressure on Highfield unless we bowled exceptionally well which we didn’t. Highfield used 9 bowlers, many of them steady, though they conceded some 15 wides whereas we only bowled one wide, a vast improvement on early season form. However, we bowled too many four-balls. The visitors’ techniques suggested that bowling straight with a full length should be profitable but that anything loose would be thumped. Alas, we bowled far too many long-hops and full tosses which were despatched powerfully to the boundary. Highfield hit 15 fours to our 5, in considerably fewer balls. Batting-wise, we needed to look for more singles; bowling-wise to bowl a line and length. 2 lessons learned! We held our catches well.
Well tried, everyone.

Highfield vs Amesbury U10B’s boys cricket

Score: Highfield 76-8 vs Amesbury 77-4

With exams behind us the U10B’s were excited to go out and play some sport. Highfield opened the batting and quickly came under fire with Amesbury bowls finding their mark. Some incredible early catches helped reduce the opposition to 11-3. The fielding was very tight and accurate bowling meant Highfield struggled to score throughout the innings. With everyone contributing to the bowling attack it was a joy to watch. Highfield worked hard and held out to the end getting 76-8 in 20 overs. With the bat in hand Amesbury went out with a bang. The boys shared the batting with only three wickets falling. By over seven of 20 the boys had reached 43. The remaining overs the boys batted incredibly sensibly and closed out the game with great control. Really impressed with their attitude and quality of cricket on show.
