Overstone A v Cogenhoe Under 13’s by Chris Towler

This week the U11’s got a well deserved rest as the U13’s were away to Overstone Park A.

Overstone Park won the toss and elected to bat. They started strongly before their opening batsman was brilliantly caught by debutant Jordan Hashim off the bowling of skipper Tom Robinson.

Runs then started to flow again and the fielding (apart from the excellent Matthew Wainwright) started to become ragged. So a wicket from spinner Alex Towler was much needed. Tom Robinson took a superb diving catch off the bowling of Elliot Williams as Overstone Park scored 194-3 off their twenty overs.

As the rain came and light deteriorated, Cogenhoe were left to bat in difficult conditions. Keeper Chris Towler top-scored with 11*. U11’s Captain Joseph Barbara, Umang Dave and Tom Robinson hit some cracking boundaries with Elliott Reynolds and Jordan Hashim scoring their first runs for the U13’s side.

The U11’s return to action next week as they take on Overstone Park B and the U13’s travel to Old Northamptonians.
