The weather proved to be Avon House’s most obdurate opponent this term with a number of tournaments and matches being cancelled. The games that were played, however, were highly encouraging because lessons had obviously been learned from practice sessions and steady improvements in all skill areas were made by a very young side.
After a solid win against a Forest team, there was an even better victory over Loyola with consistent batting down the order and some accurate bowling from Krishan and Kabir.
The U10s then played St Aubyn’s A and B teams in a six-a-side tournament, losing narrowly to the A team but beating the B team convincingly. Yusuf and Sheni batted maturely to keep their wickets intact and take a number of quick singles while Nayan stepped into the breach to keep wicket very reliably.
Well done to the following who represented the UX1 and U10 teams: Yusuf S (c), Nathan E, Sam M, Alfie, Max, Sheni, Krishan, Tej, Aarush, Dharmadev, Nayan, Tristen, Adam and Kabir.
