Reed’s two Under 9s teams entertained the Colts’ and All-Stars’ parents at their regular training practice on Sunday morning at Reed in a high scoring encounter displaying the fine progress made by the age group consisting of children graduating from the All-Stars programme from the last two seasons.
Reed 1 lost the toss and found themselves batting, however Ethan Fox relished the challenge hitting the ball to all parts scoring 33 during the 4 overs he batted. Other high scorers for Reed 1 on their way to an imposing total of 313 (Net) were Rory Longland (11) and Josh Heslam (9) and Eddie Heslam (10). The pick of the Reed 2 bowlers was Atharva Yadav with two wickets whilst Matthew Jackson, Zak Rouse and Lily Hall also took a wicket each.
In reply Reed 2 also batted well but unfortunately were always up against it chasing a large score ending their innings on 273 (Net). Runs were shared around with Lily Hall top scoring with 9. Reed 1 wicket takers were Jon Green and Daniel Tallis with two each and Eddie Heslam with one.
