Under 11's cup game V Folkestone

Well, what a start for the relatively inexperienced team.
Batting first (pairs cricket) the Sibton guys totaled 270 in their 20 overs. Some nice batting by the two Max's at the beginning, Harry & Jack Divers and  Louis Smith & Jemimah Greenwood in the middle and finished off nicely by Joseph Parry & Acey Gore. Some work to do on judging a run and backing up but it was good all the same as only 3 wickets were lost (there were quite a few extras!)
Having said that, for the guys first game together, what a bowling and fielding revelation. They kept the bowling as tight as possible with a few extras, and fielded really well. Louis Smith & Joseph Parry picked up 3 wickets each, a good run out between Joe and Harry made it difficult, with the two Max's, Harry, Acey and Jemimah all bowling well making batting difficult.
Folkestone finished on 231 for 8.
A brilliant win for the team for their first game, and probably an unexpected win - but they exceeded all expectations. Good work the coaches!
