Match Report

Junior Martlets 177 for 9 (40 overs) G. Wisdom 76, L. Ramsey 27, E. Blake 26

Babes of Kent 178 for 8 L. Ramsey 4 for 23

Lost by 2 wickets

Damp conditions at the Nevill delayed the start until 1.00pm so it was decided to play a 40 over game. The Martlets fielded a very young side with 5 under 14’s in the team. Batting was not easy but Greg Wisdom played a fine captain’s knock that provided the backbone of the innings. Eddie Blake and Louis Ramsey gave useful support with the former striking the ball well to move the pace on. Under the circumstances with a slow out field and intermittent drizzle the final total was a defendable one.

The Babes were into the 90’s before they lost their third wicket but some fine catches and Louis Ramsey’s accurate medium pace bowling changed the complexion of the game and at 145 for 8 things looked promising but an 8th wicket rally took the game the Babes way. It was an exciting game with encouraging outings for some young players.
