At the time of writing we should have played ten games – due to the weather we have played six with one game abandoned at tea. However, the good news is that we have played two league games and won them both leaving us top of Div 2 with maximum 60 points – early days yet though. It is good to see Jack Collins back and taking 5 wickets in each of the league games, ably supported by Matt Stone who took 7 wickets.
In a friendly game against St. James Montefiore Jamie Bowles, aged 14, took 5-13 and I think that takes him into the record book. There is no sentiment for age and his Dad, Rob, had his arm twisted (by Jamie) to buy a jug – first of many!
The Juniors are doing well with a regular attendance of 25+ children attending. They are very enthusiastic and seem to really enjoy the sessions with Reg and the other coaches.
The Club will be hosting a small school’s tournament on 23rd May and Bolney Primary School , where many of our juniors come from, will be taking part. It is an ideal venue with such a large ground and it will be great to see so many children taking playing cricket.
