Match Report

Junior Martlets have hard day in the sun


The Junior Martlets faced a strong side but watchful batting particularly by James Scott, Jack Turner, Charlie Weir, Joe Willis and Finn Kirkland took us to a reasonable total. Hugo March and Dominic Morgan opened up but the shortage of a fielder left a hole for the batsmen to exploit. . Hugo bowled the opener as he toiled manfully through an unbroken 7 over spell. Dom Morgan then dislocated and broke a finger in the field….down to nine fielders. Nathan Cooper, the captain kept the morale up as Ted Bloomfield, who had played for us in the two previous games(!), played a superb attacking innings to set up the victory for the Clubs side. A struggle perhaps but there was determination to the end.
