Away | Sunday 19 May 2019
Grey skies but rain held off for a fine midday session of cricket. Jim and his Elstead U11 were welcoming and in good spirits but Grayshott U11 Pelicans were inspired with some fabulous running between wickets and excellent bowling and fielding to secure a solid victory.
Grayshott batted first with Henry Bahaire and Felix Wright putting in a solid 11. Felix faced some varied bowling and was unlucky to catch an edge and drag it back onto the wicket pulling him back from a well earned 8. Henry made to work for his 8 facing some solid bowling from Elstead.
Charlie Davenport Bray was unlucky with a late out whilst supporting Daniel to a solid 12 followed by a sterling effort from Harrison Neaves and Max Grayson adding 44 to the tally with some brilliant running. The fourth pair saw Saul De Gruchy and Jacob Morris add a further 34 without loss before Alex Pinhey and Sebastian Stevenson ended the innings with 25 from Seb and 29 from Alex off some erratic bowling, Alex managing to find 3 boundaries and just pipping Harrison to outright highest run scorer
After the break, Grayshott came out firing with early caught and bowled efforts from Saul and Harrison. Two wicket hauls for Saul and Felix with a further narrow missed catch from Saul and a no ball from Seb to miss out on his two wicket tally. A fabulous team effort all round with some really positive and decisive batting and bowling. Well done Grayshott.
