George is the Difference as U9s beat Mattishall

GREAT MELTON U9s (192-3) beat Mattishall U9s (157-7) by 55 runs at Melton Park in the South Norfolk Community League

When Vauxhall Mallards called off very late because they were unable to get a team it was more in hope than expectation that Great Melton manager Chris McKay contacted Mattishall to see if their U9s could play a SNCL fixture postponed earlier in the season.  Mattishall very kindly agreed and both teams were able to enjoy a good game of cricket on a lovely warm evening in the beautiful surroundings of Melton Park.

There was little to choose between the teams really, except Melton had George Alcock! George took 2-11, and an excellent catch as Mattishall reached 157-7 (122 net) then scored 38 not out as Melton won by 55 runs. Owen Ward scored 5 & William Moulton 3 as Melton, helped by 41 wides, finished on 192-3 (177 net). There were 2 wickets for Nathan Collins & 1 each for Rupert Beasley and Owen Ward while Robbie Woods did well behind the stumps. Olly Roberson took 2-17 for Mattishall but, with Olly and Rufus Snelling top-scoring with 7, the visitors had nobody to rival George.
