U13s Washed Out – But U19s beat Topcroft!
Great Melton’s last two U13 fixtures fell victim to the weather with the match at Rocklands washed out before a ball could be bowled. 12 overs were possible last Wednesday at home to Garboldisham but, with Melton, going along nicely at 89-2, the torrential downpour that caused flooding in many parts of the region, brought an abrupt end to proceedings, leaving Charlie Green stranded on 26 and Lohit Kannan on 18. James Bridges (26) and Saxon Earley (13) were the other contributors. The Rocklands game has been rearranged for Friday 8th July.
The U19s did see some action, however, making their debut in the ECB T20 competition at Topcroft. Without several key players, Melton included U13s James Bridges, Sam Johnson and Cassie Mawby in their side but still contained too much firepower for the home team. Tom Moye grabbed a fifer and there were wickets for newly appointed Wymondham College Head Boy, James Robb, as Topcroft were bowled out for 107. Melton reached their target comfortably (match details to follow).
