Sports Report - U13 boys indoor cricket
Tonight the U13 boys cricket team hosted Haygrove, Fairlands and Kingsmead in the first round of the county cup indoor cricket.
Playing Haygrove first Chilton elected to bowl. Mackenzie Linthorne and Ellis Gannicott kept things tight before the Haygrove batters started to up the gears. Some wickets fell but Haygrove had posted 77 from their six overs.
The Haygrove attack came out all guns blazing and Chilton could not get to grips with it initially. Eventually Chilton managed to score some runs and ended up with 54 from the 6 overs.
In the 3rd/4th play off Chilton played Kingsmead in a 4 over match. Batting first Chilton mixed the order up to give everyone a game. Zak Kearle played well for a quick fire 14 as Chilton finished on 32. Fairlands’ county player made short shrift of the total as he blasted 17 from not many balls to all but see them before retiring. Eventually Fairlands won comfortably.
The boys were great and worked hard, unfortunately some key players were missing but they still enjoyed themselves.
