The first of the U11 Super 2s took place on the 28th May at King William's College 1st square in glorious sunshine. Aarav Gandu won the toss and chose to bat first. There was an outstanding innings by Rocco Spencer 107 not out from 59 balls, 12 fours and 6 sixes. He was well supported by Aelan Morgnas 11 which saw them finish on 154 for 4. Harri Lewis was the pick of the bowlers with 2 for 32 with Charlie Christian the other wicket taker.
The U11 side led by Harri Lewis kept on moving the scoreboard forward but not quite at the rate required eventually finishing on 114 all out. There were contributions from Sam Shorthouse 23, Joe Foster 20 not out, Teddy Clayton 14, Charlie Christian 13 and Breeshey Howard 11. The pick of the bowlers was Toby Lang with 2-4 with the other wicket takers Aarav Gandu two, Lucas Roome, Brody Thomas and Rocco Spencer all picking up a wicket each. There was also a high standard of fielding on display with Brody Thomas and Jude Leo each taking excellent catches.
A promising first outing for the U11s in their first Super 2s. Thanks to Robyn Ackron Photography for the wonderful action shots.
