Balloon goes up at Elstead
By Ian SIMPSON
Camberley try bravely but are blown away by Elstead's batting
On a warm summer's evening with hot air balloons sailing majestically by overhead, three Camberley U11s turned up, accompanied by another seven U10s and U9s. A brave effort from Rhys and William A, joining us from the U9s, and this was Rhys's first match with a hard ball so well done for taking part. CAmberley won the toss and batted first. Top scorer HArry BAker on a superb 28 including six fours, and ending not out. Adrian JENKINS
also did well on 11, and Ethan on 9 not out, retiring and returning twice, but being quite conservative. We inched our way to a total of 93, and then came the Elsetead County batsman, Ollie Ryman, who knocked off 44 off just 16 balls, to claim half the total after only 4 overs. Thomas GRIFFITHS
managed our one and only wicket, and Elstead kept on slotting the fours, to tidy things up in the eleventh over, at 95 for 1. Good effort from Camberley, but it was a bit like Zimbabwe playing India .... better luck next time boys..!!
