Match Report: Miskin u11 v St Fagans u11 Cubs

Match Report:- Miskin u11 v St.Fagans u11 Cubs, Monday 19th June 2017.

The home side decided to bat first on a red hot evening at the delightful Miskin ground. 

A tight opening opening over from Rhys P followed by a wicket from Aaron immediately put the Cubs on the front foot.  Seth/Will, Lewis & Tristan continued the accurate bowling which included a wicket from Tristan who celebrated his success with a joyous leap in the air.  Further tight overs from Harry & Owain who both took wickets further restricted Miskin’s progress. Run outs from excellent throws from Tristan and Gabe together with some excellent glove work from Rhys H ensured the Manor were struggling to post a formidable total. Morgan was extremely economical with his 2 overs and the innings was completed with Aled’s looping leg spin. The final Miskin pair put on 16 runs with the final total being 238 for 5 wkts.

Cubs opening pair cousins Seth & Gabe started well and in particular a fine cover drive from Seth which reached the boundary with ease. A brilliant throw at one stump from the Miskin fine leg did peg the pair back though. Lewis & Will continued the good work with Will playing a beautiful cover drive which was racing towards the boundary before hitting the tree which is situated well within the rope. Despite slight confusion from the home umpire a four was eventually signalled much to Will’s delight.

Aaron, Aled & Morgan defended their wickets well against some accurate bowling through the middle of our innings. Harry & Owen came to the wicket with the Cubs well ahead & despite losing a wicket straight away they stemmed the tide to ensure the final pair of Rhys P & Rhys H had a bit of a cushion to see the Cubs home. They didn’t disappoint with the pair running well between the wickets to cement the victory. Total 251 for 7 wickets.

Result:- Cubs won by 13 runs.

Thanks to Paul for scoring the book and a big thanks to all the parents who supported the boys. (The more encouragement from the boundary the better)

Cheers

Mike Hill

Also a big mention to the Stags U11s who recorded a comprehensive 141 run win against Lisvane Minotaurs. The future is bright, the future is maroon!

30th June: Mike Phillips, Ian Harvey & Chris Cowdrey lead the names for TMT

St Fagans Cricket Club will again be host for a special celebration cricket match on Friday 30th June as Matthew Maynard brings a star-studded team to play tour 1st XI, with the profits going to the Tom Maynard Trust.

Our club was of course where Tom played most of his club cricket in Wales, following in the footsteps of his father, himself also a St Fagans stalwart, and the match has a special poignancy for the Maynard family because of their close connections with the club. The Invitation XI is being sponsored by Abbey Glass.

The Twenty20 match itself starts in mid-afternoon and will be preceded by a special marquee lunch, with entertainment being provided by former Kent and England captain, Chris Cowdrey, who also enjoyed a season playing with Matthew at Glamorgan in 1992.

The match is open to the general public, with admission £5 (donation) for adults and children being admitted free of charge. For further information contact Jane John on 07809 050635 or by email at jane.john123@icloud.com.

Confirmed for Matt’s team are former Gloucestershire, Yorkshire and Australia all-rounder Ian Harvey; Leicestershire, Australia and former Glamorgan batsman Mark Cosgrove; and former Glamorgan legends Dean Cosker and Mark Wallace. And in a British Lions summer there is a special Welsh rugby flavour to the team, with former Wales and Lions scrum half Mike Phillips, along with former Wales internationals Ceri Sweeney, Nicky Robinson, Jamie Robinson, Jamie Ringer and Rhys Williams, who is also a Trust Patron, all lined up to play, along with, of course, Matt himself. A number of current Glamorgan players will also be in attendance on the day.

Matt Maynard said:

“This is now a highlight of the summer for the Trust and a very special day for the family. We have some great names lined up to play and we’re really looking forward to having Chris Cowdrey with us on the day providing the entertainment.  This is the fifth time we’ve done this and it’s become a well-established event.  As always, St Fagans have done us proud with their organizing and I’m sure it’ll be a really enjoyable day.”
