Under 14's

The Wingham AMIEU team travelled to Bulahdelah and chose to bowl first.

Charlie Pereira (1 for 2), Callum Taylor (1 for 1), and Cooper Walker (1 for 16) all snared a wicket each.

Will Raison (2 for 7) and Jackson Barry (3 for 9) ensured Bulahdelah were held to a modest total of 8 for 80 from their 30 overs.

The chase started poorly for the AMIEU side losing two of the first three batters for ducks.

Jackson Barry 14 and Harry Thomas 15no put up some resistance but it wasn't enough to stop the home team from running away with the win. AMIEU all out for 57.

Next week the Under 14's look forward to playing their first game at home this season at Central Park.

Under 12's

Both Under 12 sides travelled to Forster-Tuncurry for their matches and were greeted with blustery conditions.

Wingham Chapman and Wood took on Great Lakes Boost Juice, and also had a difficult start with three of the top four batters dismissed for ducks.

But a solid partnership between Angus Abbott (13no) and Sam Harris (19) enabled Wingham to put 7/74 on the scoreboard.

Shawn Griffin was the best of the bowlers with 2 for 6, with Kingston Mawson, Brayden Garrett and Sam Harris all chiming in with a wicket apiece. In the end though Great Lakes did enough closing out at 6/83 with a few overs to spare.

At Lake Street, a depleted Wingham MJR Accountants were up against Great Lakes Professionals.

Georgina Palmer and Josh Bentley continued their improving batting form with 14 each helping Wingham to 3/95 at the close of innings.

In the field Bentley took two good catches of Arabella Roohan's bowling (2 for 26). Rose Nattress was keen with the keeping gloves on, while Blake Wilson executed a late runout.

But despite their best efforts, Wingham were defeated as Great Lakes closed their innings at 3/117.

In other Under 12's news, Wingham's Shawn Griffin, Oscar Platt, and Arabella Roohan were all selected for the Manning Blue Marlins, commencing the inter-district representative season.

Griffin was outstanding, wicket keeping for the entire 40 overs in the hot conditions, while Roohan (1 for 21) bowled superbly to a formidable opposition top order and Platt chimed in with good pace (0/32).
