Dorridge U8 hosted Walmley U8 at their lovely ground on Grove Lane. Jibril captaining the side lost the toss and Dorridge decided to put us into bat, on a cloudy evening. The team was still recovering from the intense match the evening before, but were still excited for the game ahead. This Dorridge side was the only real U8 side that we have faced and it was their first ever game as a team. Umer, Daniel and Eddie all taking 2 wickets each. Dorridge ended up with a score of 193.
Dorridge was a young side and bowled and fielded wonderfully for their first game. It reminded us of what we were like last year when we had our first game. Strong batting performance from Dylan scoring 17, Ariyan 14, and big hitting Bryan 18. Walmley ended up on 263.
We look forward to our next game against Streetly U10 at Briar Lane on Sunday.
