Fergus Stars as U11s Make it Four out of Four

Great Melton U11s beat Diss U11s by 66 runs at Diss in the Terry Moore Trophy

Skipper Fergus Hughes led by example scoring an unbeaten 28 and taking 4-4 including a hat-trick as Great Melton U11s made it four victories out of four with a 66-run win at Diss.  The Diss batsmen had no answer to the accurate bowling of the Melton lads, losing 9 wickets in scoring 247, a net total of 202.  Hughes returned remarkable figures of 3-1-4-4 with his hat-trick coming in his final over.  Connor Jermyn (2-0-5-2), Finlay Hughes (2-0-7-1), Josh Moore (2-1-3-1) and Arvind Shanmugan (3-0-8-1) also picked up wickets.  In reply Logan Stearman (7), Finlay Hughes (2) and Jermyn (1) were all dismissed once but with the required total achieved midway through the innings, Shanmugan (3 not out), Moore (1 not out) and Wilson (2 not out) were happy to defend.  Fergus had other ideas, though, and played a series of delightful shots, hitting 6 fours in an impressive innings that capped, for him, a very good performance that also included 2 catches.
