Walmley U8 v WB Dartmouth U10
This was our second match against West Bromwich Dartmouth this season. After losing the first game by 1 run Walmley were looking to turn things around in this match. Walmley boys were excited after WB Dartmouth agreeing to play with a junior hardball for this match. Bryan captained the side and won the toss putting Dartmouth into bat first on an overcast morning which threatened to rain.
Walmley boys bowled tight giving away very few extras and the fielding just seems to be getting better every game we play. Daniel stopping so many potential runs on the boundaries! The standout bowler was Umer taking 3 wickets and was on a hat-trick at one point. Dartmouth ended up with a total of 241.
Walmley batted sensibly with Bryan hitting 14 and Tommy hitting 16. Walmley ending on 272 and a comfortable victory.
This is the 5th win in a row for this team. Hopefully this may continue this week, but I’ve got a feeling the weather is going to be causing some disruption.
