Syston Vs Melton Mowbray U11’s
NE Division Group ATeam Sponsor: Harrison Murray http://www.harrisonmurray.co.uk/
On a pleasant summer evening at the picturesque Syston ground Melton’s game Captain J.Lambert won the toss and elected to bowl.
Maiden overs from H.Stokes and K.Mistry held the hosts at 217 from the first 4 overs and keen bowling in the middle section restricted the score to 228 at 8 overs with E.Hood and S.Thorpe both taking wickets.
Fine work behind the stumps from H.Gibbs made progress difficult for Syston. Further wickets for Captain J.Lambert and H.Stokes in the last few overs combined with only 6 runs coming from the last 3 overs restricted Systons total to 257.
Meltons opening pair L.Mackie and M.Wrath made a solid start and boundaries from E.Hood and K.Mistry put Melton ahead after 8 overs. At the end of the 12th over Melton were looking good at 250 runs but some tough and accurate bowling from the last Syston pair forced some key wickets and Melton ended 11 runs short. A strong performance from the Melton team and they take some confidence to the next league enounter against Egerton Park on the 21st June at the All England Sports Ground.
