An impressive opening partnership between Luis Jones-Arnold and Joseph Hill (26 and 22 respectively) were the stand out performances when our Under12s Development Squad played a strong Ryde contingent at Rew Valley last night. Invited to bat first, Ryde reached an impressive 152 off their 12 overs with Iain Hayles and Harry Everard hitting 36 and 38 respectively. In response, our opening pair played well but couldn’t keep pace with the run rate required against some very tight bowling. Ryde came out on top by 62 runs. Next match is on Friday 24th January against Cowes CC 6pm start at Rew Valley. Well done to Luis Jones-Arnold, James Curtis, Joseph Hill, Bradley Baker, Alfie Cheeseman and Sam Mills.

The under 11s were in action again today against Arreton Cricket Club. Bradley Baker was the latest player to make his debut for the team and contributed well with the bat and in the field.
Thomas Noyes bowled particularly well ending with figures of 2-0-10-3. Strong bowling performances from Thomas Southcott, Luis Jones-Arnold and Xanda Turner helped to reduce Arreton to a score below 50. Although the running between wickets was a little suspect at times, several members of the team scored valuable runs (Thomas Southcott, Xanda Turner, James Curtis, Luis Jones-Arnold and Oliver Cheeseman) leading to a victory for the away team. Well-done Colts! Next game – under 11s v Newport CC u11s Island Cup Competition
