Match report: St Fagans Cubs v Barry

Match report:- Cubs v Barry June 12th

This evening the young Cubs entertained a Barry Athletic side who were playing their first fixture of the season. We batted first with Gaby /Owain opening the innings. Two early wickets from the accurate seaside opening quick ensured we made a slow start!  Ollie/Will then steadied the ship with an unbroken partnership which helped to push the score along together with some extremely erratic bowling resulting in numerous wides & no balls. Sam/Seth/Lewis continued the good work with Seth timing the ball well. Jack/Harry/Aled came to the crease next and all scored runs and in doing so were leading us to a respectable total. The Rhysis P & H concluded the innings with some excellent running between the wickets & couple of fine off drives from Rhys P being the highlights.
Cubs Total 278 for 2 wkts.

The Barry opening pair faced a hostile first over from young Owain.
Economical overs from Seth, Will, Sam & Gaby ensured the away side were falling further and further behind the rate.  Jack was then brought into the attack & produced a wicket with a fine caught & bowled. Aled, Lewis, Rhys P continued the steady work before further wickets from Harry, Jack & Seth which ensured we were heading for a comfortable victory. Some excellent ground fielding including run outs from Ollie and Owain together with some excellent glove work by Rhys H capped off a fine fielding display. A mention also to young Gaby for his efforts in the field.
Barry total 220 for 7

Cubs WON by 58 runs

Thanks to all the support of the parents & also to Dave Jacques for scoring the book.
