MATCH REPORT: U13’s away to Soar Valley

Melton Mowbray CC U13s ease past Soar Valley in cup

NE Leics Under 13s Cup


Melton won by 10 runs

Melton visited Soar Valley for their second cup game of the season on Sunday.

The visitors were put in to bat and found boundaries hard to come by because of the long grass on the outfield.

J. Tew made a solid 25 and retired, while S. Thorpe put in a good performance to hit 20 as Melton finished on a respectable 108-4 from their allotted overs.

K. Mackie opened the bowling with a maiden over and only went for six runs off three overs in total.

T. Jordan and J. Tew earned figures of 1 for 8 and 1 for 9 respectively from their three overs as Soar Valley found scoring hard, losing wickets quickly to eventually finish 10 runs short.

Melton’s next game is at home at the All England Ground, Saxby Road, on Sunday morning against Barkby.
