Another win for the under 10 boys

Good all round performance against first class opposition

The under 10 boys demonstrated their continuing development with a convincing win against a strong and well coached Warwickshire team. Batting first, openers Bailey Niblett (20) and Alfie Agar (14) built a partnership of 48 (helped by numerous extras) before the first of several run outs claimed Alfie's wicket. Wickets continued to fall and Berkshire looked to be struggling at 77 for 5 before Aaron Lall (32) and Charlie Hunt (15) came together to put on 55 for the 6th wicket. With the spate of run outs continuing, the lower order did well to put on 38 for the last 4 wickets in the last eight overs, helped along by Sam Smith (9 not out) and a generous gift of wides and no balls. Warwickshire's bowlers stuck to their task but 10 wides and 7 no balls (worth at least 2 runs each to the batting side) didn't help their cause and enabled Berkshire to finish on 170 all out on the last ball of the 40 overs - predictably a run out.

In reply, Warwickshire started disastrously, losing their first four wickets for seven runs to the pace of Aayan Malik (4 for 14) and the left arm spin of skipper Connor Lamsdale (1 for 14). A fifth wicket stand of 40 and sixth wicket partnership of 42 moved Warwickshire to the relative respectability of 89 for 6 and on to 110 for 7 thanks mainly to the batting of opener Greg Rushton (42) and Oliver Dandy (29) but the lower order didn't look like threatening the target and the innings ended on 140 for 9 at the end of the 40 overs, leaving Berkshire comfortable winners by 30 runs. Berkshire's other wicket takers were Freddie Barker (1-26) and Charlie Kingsford (2-30). The Berkshire fielding was impressive, typified by keeper Alfie's three dismissals and a long range run out by Sam.

The Berkshire team is not yet the finished article but should learn a lot from suffering 6 (yes six!) run outs and giving away 38 runs in extras. Three wins out of three is a great start and a tribute to coach Jon Stewart's progressive methods and emphasis on team spirit which the boys respond well to.
