    I’m heading over to Brooke tonight to watch the U13s ECB Quarter-Final so there is no specific U15 practice. U15s are welcome to join-in with the seniors at 6.30.

Great Melton u11s 134/4 beat Mundford u11s 56/3 by 78 runs

With the small matter of the World Cup Final being shown live on the telly the Melton vs Mundford u11s match was played at an electric pace this morning, some quick bowling, a lightening quick over rate and some blistering shots off the bat to boot.

Mundford won the toss and elected to field but the Melton top order put the away bowlers to the sword. Despite the loss of an early wicket Evan Mercer (20) Ben Tree (30*) and James Alcock (32*) all dealt mostly in boundaries. When the latter two batsmen retired the run-rate slowed a little but there was a good 30 run partnership between Leon Royle and Henley Turner. For Mundford Pearson and Grass were the pick of the bowlers both achieving figures of 2-15, they were well supported however by Rhodes and Brown with the ball and Steed with the gloves.

In reply Melton opened the bowling with more pace from Alcock and Tree with the latter taking a wicket and then a catch off the excellent bowling of Charlie Hosmer (3-2-4-1). A further wicket fell after some smart keeping from Mercer created a run-out and then it was left to the remaining Mundford batsmen to dig in. Some tight bowling from Melton's bowlers especially Jake Tomkins (2-0-5-0) and David Benton (3-0-9-0) kept the runs to a minimum but no further wickets were to fall due to excellent perserverance of Batsmen Grass and Brown.

After a quick well done and a shake of hands it was a dash to get in front of the telly in great anticipation of an England World Cup victory.

In a fantastic game of cricket tonight between 2 evenly matched teams, Great Melton U11 girls beat Horsford by 1 run.
Melton lost the toss and were put into bat. The opening pair of Hope and Abby started well running sensibly and only losing one wicket (Abby bowled by Alice) in their 4 overs -taking the total to 212. Imogen and Freya continued to score steadily and took the score to 228 without the loss of any wickets. Ella and Samia came in and faced some accurate bowling with Lili-Ella taking 2 wickets and one a piece for Susannah and Ellie. They finished their overs on a score of 231. Niamh and Rebecca concluded the batting. They ran some quick singles and scored a couple of boundaries with the loss of just one wicket (Niamh bowled by Alice) to take the total to 253.
Horsford's first pair of Bella and Ellie batted well. Both girls scored boundaries and ran some quick singles with just one wicket (Bella bowled by Hope) falling in the first 4 overs. The score of 213 at this point in the game suggested that this was going to be a tight match. Lili-Ella and Alice came to the crease and continued to score boundaries and singles to keep the scoreboard ticking along. One run out (Lili-Ella run out by Ella) meant that the scores remained close with Horsford on 231 (3 ahead) at the half way stage of the innings. Horsford's 3rd pair of Mille and Susannah put on 19 runs for the loss of 2 wickets (bowled by Samia and Freya) to edge the home team slightly ahead on 242 after 12 overs. The final pairing of Grace and Kenzie came to the crease needing 14 runs to win from 4 overs. Abby bowled an excellent 13th over - taking 1 wicket for just 1 run and the tension rose on the sidelines. Grace scored 2 boundaries and Kenzie a single in the 14th over taking the score to 248. The 15th over (again bowled by Abby) saw Niamh stop a well-hit shot going over the boundary with her knee ensuring that only 4 were scored from it. This left Horsford needing 2 runs to win from the final over. Still nursing her sore knee, Niamh limped up to bowl the final over. 6 excellent deliveries that were fantastically taken behind the stumps by Rebecca (who had played superbly all match to stop everything going past her); a maiden over and a victory for Melton - what an amazing display from a team who have come so far this year.
Their encouragement of each other, team spirit and ability to listen and learn were all on display today. We are really proud of them all.
The customary crazy photo will not disappoint (plus one of both teams together after the match)
