James Leads U11s to Victory
Great Melton U11s 302-4 (net 278) beat Bradenham U11s 274-6 (net 238) by 40 runs at Melton Park in the Terry Moore Trophy
Captain James Alcock's man-of-the-match performance plus some good contributions from the rest of the team, enabled the U11s to secure their first win of the season against Bradenham in the Terry Moore Trophy.
James scored 34 and took 3-13 in 3 overs to take the plaudits but George Alcock also made his mark, scoring 14 and taking a superb catch behind the wicket off his brother's bowling. Nick Conway (7), Callum Marchant (5) Jake Canning (4) and Evan Mercer (6) helped Melton reach 302-4, a net score of 278. Sam Williams was Bradenham's best bowler with 2-11.
In reply Solomon Poole scored 8 but ‘wides' was by far the highest score with 52 in the visitors' 274-6, a net score of 238. David Benton (2-0-9-1) got a wicket on his debut and there was a run out, a wicket for Evan Mercer (3-1-4-1) who bowled very well and three for James who was just too quick and accurate for the Bradenham batsmen.
It was a great game of cricket with a lovely crowd from Bradenham so a very enjoyable evening all round.
