Under 11 B’s vs Langtons

Tim Neal had the pleasure of taking the Under 11b team to play The Langtons on Friday evening as cover for Matt Bashford who was celebrating his son’s birthday.
On a perfect evening, and at one of the most perfect grounds it was a memorable occasion and the game was watched by an excellent crowd who took the opportunity to get the weekend off to a sociable start.
Although the game was strictly 8 a side, we managed to get 9 players and Taylor Blatchford made his competitive cricket debut as a non batting player.
Fielding first Kibworth restricted Langtons to 236 from their 16 overs with bowling figures as follows:-
Libby Howard 2/10, Olly Hillier 1/8, Theo Pemberton 0/19, Thomas Bunce 2/6, Louis Hammond 2/2, Alex Bacon 0/19, George Impey 0/9 and Taylor Blatchford 1/5.
In response Theo (4) and Jake Hibbs (5) got us off to a good start with 9 runs from their 4 overs.  Libby (2) and George (3) added 5 for the loss of 1 wicket from their spell before Alex and Louie (7) added a further 7 for the loss of 1 wicket from their 4 overs.  Final pair Tom (11) and Oliver (5) added 16 in the final round for the loss of 2 wickets as we finished winners by 18 runs.  An excellent game, played in a great spirit and to quote the team afterwards “we beat their candy asses!”
