Great Win at Grayswood
By Ian SIMPSON
Great teamwork does the trick for the U11s!
Despite half the parents going to Grayshott, Greywell, or even CamberleyCC , we had just about enough to start, and luckily CCC won the toss and elected to bat on a tiny outfield, with a hungry -looking boundary, as streams of classic cars filed past, en route Goodwood! Our two big sluggers , Harry and Adrian opened, and looked set to start scoring big, until Harry sadly fell cheaply. Henry E then came in and managed a couple of fours before succumbing. It was left to the middle order to build the total, with Ollie, Owen, George, Oscar, all scoring some runs. The complex retirement rules had batsmen like Aariz jogging on and off the field several times! Owen and Ollie were finally re-united and Owen finished the innnings with an excellent four to bring Camberley to 113.
This wasnt a particularly comfortable target, and the Grayswood openers were soon slugging away at their tiny boundary and were ahead on the "worm graph" early on. Things started to look black. Then suddenly their wickets started tumbling, Ollie managing two double-wicket maidens, plus a catch & a run out to get him man of the match. George and Harry also scooped up some wickets and the whole team's fielding, saving fours and getting the ball back accurately, saw CCC dismiss their hosts for 88 , for a convincing win in the end. Adrian did particularly well with the gloves today, stopping almost everything coming at him. So a big well done to everybody!
