Great Melton U11s beat Mundford U11s by 127 runs at Melton Park in the Terry Moore Trophy

With most of last year’s successful U11s still eligible to play this season, the extra skill and experience of the Melton lads proved too much for Mundford who suffered a heavy defeat.  The visitors lost 8 wickets in scoring 240 making their net score 200 and leaving Melton to score just one run for victory.  In actual fact they scored 237 for the loss of just 2 wickets to win by 127 runs.  Fergus Hughes led the way with an unbeaten 32 with Patrick Walton contributing 17, Logan Stearman 8 not out and Tom Moye 7 not out.  Melton were helped by 63 extras!

Earlier there had been two wickets piece for Hughes (2-7), Arvind Shanmugan (2-1) and Josh Moore (2-11) with one for Walton (1-17).  Craig Wilson conceded just one run in his 2 overs.  Luke Riches top-scored for the visitors with 7.  Melton, aiming for a second successive appearance in the Terry Moore final, were pleased to have got their campaign off to a convincing start but there will be far stiffer tests to come.
