York u13A Vs Heslington – Match Report

U13 District League Div 1.   Sun 10th June
York A 119-5
Heslington 59-4

York Win by 60 runs

A very young York A team where invited to bat by Heslington and within the first 2 overs had lost both senior openers Ben Cressey and George Burton for 1 apiece. A good stand then took place to steady the ship between Josh Ellis and Jamie Talago before Jamie was bowled for 12. This brought in 10 year old Jack Robinson who showed great maturity with regard to both his scoring shots, running and calling. Together with Josh they added over 70 runs with Josh retiring not out on 30* and Jack retiring not out on 31*.

York’s total was given further momentum by both U11’s Ralf Schofield with10* and Aiden Doeg with 16* in the closing few overs. York reaching 119 for 5 from 20 overs.

Credit due to a hardworking Heslington team who gave 8 outfielders a bowl

The Heslington batters found scoring harder against the York bowlers and wickets were taken by Aiden Doeg with 2 and Louis Toulmin with 1. Keeper Lucas Oxley took 3 good catches. Heslington ending on 59-4 with Matthew Richardson holding their innings together with 27 not out.

Congratulations to the whole Team especially those U.11 Players debuting and covering for absent Squad members.
