Under 13's v Forton 6th May 2009
This week Madeley u13's entertained local club Lilleshall at our Park Street ground. After losing the toss Madeley found themselves in the field. A good Lilleshall side were soon taking quick singles pushing the score along at a healthy rate but our u13's all rolled up their sleeves and got down to some excellent fielding and bowling. This week special mention goes to the whole team for a great effort in the field and with the ball.
The Players are C.Hodson, A Turner, N.Simms, D.Simms, D.Bowdler, C.Patterson, J.Pratt, S.Weston, R.Woodman, A.Sabin.
Lilleshall eventually scored 284 runs but with some great run outs (A.Sabin), one handed catches (R.Woodman) they lost 40 runs due to losing 8 wickets.
Madeley started well with A.Sabin looking nice and straight and it was vital not to lose early wickets. C.Hodson (23) and D.Bowdler (20) were the main run scorers for the home side and with C.Hodson scoring his first maximum for the club the home side after their allotted 20 overs had scored 277 runs. As they had only lost 3 wickets 15 runs were deducted but left us on 262 and victory was gained.
The whole team were an absolute credit to themselves and all parents who attended and of course Madeley Cricket Club.
Madeley are away at Newport next week
