Sussex Junior Festival of Cricket 2014 -U/14 team

posted 9 Aug 2014, 03:50 by Rory Gogarty
Well done to the boys for coming second in their group behind a very strong Broadwater Colts team but well ahead of Priory Park, Barns Green and Midhurst. The only game lost was to Broadwater Colts (a game we should have won) but the boys all played with great spirit and enjoyed the week.  All the boys made significant contributions with bat, ball or in the field exemplifying the team nature of the game. There were some particularly notable individual contributions amongst this excellent team play: Tom Gogarty's 103 and Alfie Edworthy's 58 both against Barns Green, Luke Haddow's 55 not out against Broadwater, Eddie Kendall's 50 not out against Priory Park and George Williams 29 which held the innings together against Priory Park. All our bowlers did very well and we were the strongest attack in this League. Percy Moore's 6-21 against Barns Green was outstanding but Alfie Edworthy, Luke Haddow and Will Gaynor all bowled particularly well all week.
A big thank you to the parents who helped organise with lifts and teas especially Annabel, Annastasia, Cara and Philippa. Special thanks to Tom for helping to umpire and score and to Simon who proved he is a master at scoring in the rain.
