NEWS & RESULTS
5th May Amport - Lost
Amport batted first scoring 274, and Ropley scored 240. A good game of cricket enjoyed by all. Thank you to the girls for helping to field the team.
6th May IBM Hursley Tournament
The Tournament at IBM hursley was also great fun where 10 teams turned out with two groups of 5 battling it out in a 10 a side format. Ropley boasted 14 players who alternated playing 2 or in some instances 3 of the 4 games. All but one game was close and could have gone either way, the "but one" was the dreaded nemesis (of my yester year) of St Cross!
The weekend gave some great match experience to some new players and a bit of practice and warm up for those that have played before. It also helped me to better gauge strengths and areas for development.
There were lots of highlights in the games to mention just a few (and sorry I know I didnt get it all noted down!!):
- Harry got a caught and bowled - which his dad caught on video!
- Will got a fine run out with a direct hit from the covers aiming at a single stump - against St Cross
- Toby hit a big 6 over Square leg
- Evan got two mirror image catches in mid wicket
- Ranulph bowled middle stump out of the ground
- Floyd also got a wicket - bowling someone out as did Leana
- A fine cover drive for 4 from James
