County Colts, Herts North Area U12 v. Herts West Area U12
The U11s played Royston who made 244 (Net). Gethin Hill took 2 wickets for 4 runs and there was 1 wicket each for Thomas Green, Stanley Johnson, George Arnott, Joseph Rhodes and Daniel Vincent. Reed scored 235 (Net) in reply, Thomas Green hit 13 and Daniel Vincent 11. A week later in the return match, Royston’s net score was 296, Oscar Lamb taking 2 wickets for Reed. Our U11s' innings ended on with 253 (Net), Daniel Vincent top-scoring with 27 and Matthew Barons made 12. Mildenhall ran up 140 against our Under 13s, Charlie Walters taking 2 for 15. Reed responded with 112 for 5. Sam Osborne had to retire on 31 and Charlie Walters also retired with 30.
Reed were at home to Sawbridgeworth on Monday evening. Batting first Ollie and Luke batted solidly against Sawbridgeworth’s strongest bowlers, before Effie and Lily (who hit a great 4) followed up. Matthew and Lenny batted next and where the only pair not to get out. And then the hard-hitting Henry and Atharva finished off the innings where Reed scored 227-9. Henry top scored with 11, Ollie got 7 and Matthew 6. After an inspirational TeamTalk from captain Luke, Reed bowled tight and straight. Pick of the bowlers was Effie taking 4-5, Lily 2-1 (including a maiden) and Atharva 1-13. It got very tight and Sawbo needed 2 to win off the last two overs and in the penultimate over Luke bowled a maiden before Ollie bowled 5 dot balls leaving Sawbo needing 1 to tie or 2 to win off the last ball. Sawbo got bat on ball and with the encouragement of the away supporters they scampered through for a single to also finish on 227-9, so the game finished as a tie. This was a great advert for children’s cricket with every pair batting for four overs, bowling for two overs and importantly with every child walking off the pitch with a smile on their face.

The programme for all the Reed teams has started in earnest. There have been several changes to the match dates since the Club’s Fixture Card went to print in early-April meaning you will have to keep up to date by looking at the “Events Calendar” on this website. Hannah and the Team Managers inform me when matches have been re-arranged for one reason or another. Then, once I know them, I also enter the results in the post “Fixtures & Results (All of 2019)”. In the “View Entries” box I suggest you choose 100 then scroll down the list. Under 13s versus Royston (CYCA Cup).
