An update on a busy week for the Under 12s with three matches in the Cotswold Hills Under 13s league.

Last Sunday (June 4) the team visited a strong Elmley Castle side, with the home side coming out on top with a clear 50-run victory.

The Under 12s bounced back well the following Wednesday evening against Ashton-under-Hill when in rain at Hill Close they secured a 15-run victory, chasing down the visitors’ 263-4 with a score of 278, also for the loss of four wickets.

On Sunday,  June 11, the team welcomed Dumbleton Lions to Hill Close, and having asked the visitors to bat first restricted them to 242-6 with their best bowling and fielding performance of the season.

Unfortunately, the batting did not reach the same standards and the loss of nine wickets restricted the score to 240, leaving Bredon just two runs short of their target in a very well contested game between two evenly matched sides.
