SOUTHAM V AYLESFORD
The Y8 Cricket team played Aylesford last Thursday but unfortunately only had 6 players.
Captain Matt Cartridge decided to bat first and after 15 overs Southam were 102-1. Matt (53*) took the attack to the Aylesford bowling unit and was rewarded with his first half century for Southam College. Further support came from Charlie Morrison and Spencer Wadsworth.
The 6 Southam players worked hard to cover the space in the field and some agile fielding from Fin Simms and Eric Stanley ran out the Aylesford opener, increasing the pressure on the opposition. When Matt Cartridge trapped the other opener LBW, Southam sensed a shock victory was within sight. However, some big hitting from Aylesford’s lower order saw them reach their target with two overs to spare.
A huge thank you to Matt, Spencer, Eric, Charlie, Finn and Brandon Bulloch for the effort and endeavour. Lets train hard for fixtures this week vs King Henry VIII.
