Top team: The Under 11s triumphed over Harvington

Captain for the match Charlie Cooper correctly called tails and asked to field first, explaining confidently that “we like to chase”.

Playing 10-a-side with five batting pairs, Bredon’s bowling was not at its very best, but still effective, and wickets fell regularly through the Harvington innings.

This, plus a very energetic and skilful fielding performance contained the home side to 233 from their 20 overs.

James Collins was the pick for Bredon; fast, straight and full, he bowed a miserly spell of three overs for no runs with three wickets.

All five batting pairs made a positive contribution to the Bredon total, with a more circumspect approach than in recent weeks ensuring only a few wickets were conceded.

Despite resisting the temptation to smash every ball, the scoreboard still rattled along, with many playing scoring boundaries.

Special mention goes to Tom Washbourne, who showed his older team mates the way by batting carefully but still striking two sumptuous fours.

The final word was left to George and Tolly who, batting last, put Bredon out of reach.

A tremendous over saw Tolly smash the very first six of the season and follow up with two further boundaries, leaving Bredon on 285, and comfortable winners.

A very big thank-you to Trevor and all the parents at Harvington for hosting the fixture and providing fantastic hospitality.

The hot dogs at the end of the game were delicious and we hope to return the favour next season.
