Under 12’s

On a hot morning, Wingham Under 12’s won the toss and elected to bat first against Old Bar. 

Wingham lost a wicket early but a solid partnership between Drew Gosper (28) and Callum Taylor (17no) set a good foundation for Wingham.

Old Bar tore through the Wingham middle order, but a blistering 31 runs from Riley Lane helped Wingham set a defendable total. At the close of the innings Wingham were 6-131.

Out in the field Wingham looked sharp and in control with Bailey Timmins setting the standard with the gloves.

The second bowling change opened up Old Bar’s line-up with Callum Taylor 2-14 (three overs), and Cae Allan returning 1-13 after two overs. Drew Gosper also grabbed two wickets and Oscar Platt in his first game for Wingham held onto a nice caught and bowled to claim the last wicket, with Old Bar dismissed for 7-70, providing a convincing victory for Wingham.

In Under 10’s action, the Wingham Sixes won the toss and elected to bowl, which proved to be a good decision in the hot conditions. Ned Crawford picked up two wickets in his third over to return 2-14 (four overs).

The Wingham fielding was exceptional with Angus Abbott and Anwar Ali jagging two runs out each along with Kobi Lucas completing a direct hit run out.

After 20 overs Wingham were able to contain Great Lakes (Professionals Real Estate) to 104 runs.
