Parents & Kids Cricket this Sunday

We are holding a little “fun” competition this Sunday as a roundoff to the junior season.We would like as many parents and children as possible of Under 13s and younger, including the U7s and U8s “Junior Dragons” to take part. Get there for 10:30 ish. Finish time sometime in the afternoon, depending on numbers. Soft ball games, so don’t worry about your cricketing ability.  Barbecue will be going and of course the bar will be open. Please let me know by text ( 07850 766518) or send a message via the “comments” tab on this post, so we know who  is coming. We can then  try and work out a format in advance.  Hopefully the weather will play ball.

Bobby Gill hits Century

Bobby has been in good form with bat this season, so it was no surpise that he finally made a three figure score. Batting for the 3rd XI at Pontesbury he ground his way to 125 in the cautious manner we have come to expect of him. As well as hitting over 600 runs  Bobby has also taken around 40 wickets so far this season.

 

Ton for Sam Morgan at Wolverhampton

U14 player Sam Morgan has joined Jack Heath and Mitchell Hoof to become the third St.Georges junior player to score a hundred this season. He did it at Wolverhampton playing for the U15 team while St.Georges were chasing a big total of 274/5 , Jack Manning scoring 103 for Wolverhampton. Despite Sam’s century and good support from Matt Chesters (42) St.Georges could not quite reach the Wolverhampton total.     Scorecard

They travelled to Ambleside, Nuneaton on Wednesday and posted 112 in an innings reduced by rain to 15 overs. Joe Buttery led the way with the bat scoring 61. The Dragons then restricted Ambleside to 81/4.  see Scorecard. Ambleside had narrowly beaten Shifnal in the previous round.  The next round will be played at St.Georges either tomorrow (Friday) or Bank Holiday Monday in the morning. The semi-finals and final will be played on Tuesday 30th August.    The last time St.Georges progressed this far in the competition was in 1999 when we narrowly lost to Wolverhampton in the final. Current members from that year’s team include Joe Turner, Chris Waldron and Steve Taylor.

8 wicket Byram bowls 1st XI to first win!

A brilliant bowling display by Ben Byram gave the Dragons 1st XI their first win of the season, away at Coleshill on Saturday. Batting first St.Georges made 184/9 with Brendan O’Keefe scoring 41.  Byram then decimated the Coleshill batting with figures of 8/56.  Coleshill were skittled for 152.  Only downside to the day was skipper Chris Miller’s hamstring injury, which forced him to leave the field early in the Coleshill innings.
