Accrington Under 15s 2016

27th July 2016

Accrington U15s 131 for 6, Lowerhouse U15s (3) 76 for 5 from 20 ish overs

Lowerhouse came with a stronger team than we had played in the earlier game. They also had some fiendish tricks up their sleeves in order to try and overcome us.  Mainly thanks to Ben M and Raheem we had amassed a strong total in our 20 overs, however Lowerhouse then to tried to confuse us as we bowled 21 overs at them. Once again thanks to our strong bowling and fielding this wasn’t a problem and we ran out worthy winners.

Accrington U15s 77 for 5, Rawtenstall U15s 74 for 7 from 18 overs

Having had enough of Zeus by now it was a pleasant relief to have Simon Hanson back at the crease.
Another great bowling performance put us in a strong position and after another slightly jittery opening to the batting Accrington gathered momentum and won with 5 overs to spare.

15th June 2016
Accrington U15s 77 for 4, Enfield U15s 76 for 5 from 16 overs
In a reduced overs match Accrington overcame their neighbours from Enfield and won with three overs to spare. Great bowling from everyone kept Enfield down to a low score but Accrington were struggling on 6 for 3 when Ellie and Ben M came together at the crease. Some impressive batting followed from both and the game was won.  Thanks to Zeus for making a rare appearance at the crease. It’s also been alleged that the lesser spotted Zeus made a rare appearance for the Third team this week and took a match winning catch!

Accrington U15s 113 for 2, Lowerhouse U15 (3) 63 for 9 after 20 overs.

On a cold, dreary night in deepest darkest Lowerhouse,  Accrington overcame a very young Lowerhouse team in a 20 over match that had the facilities been available would have been played under floodlights.

Notable performances

Batting            Alice Clarke 39 not out
                       Ben Ross 30
                       Bailey Chamberlain 20
                       George Mills 12 not out

Bowling           Everyone bowled well but that list would be too long so:-
                        Junayd 4 overs, 1 maiden, 10 runs, 1 wicket
                        Riley Armstrong 4 overs, 1 maiden, 3 runs, 3 wickets
                        Thomas Walker 1 over, 3 runs, 1 wicket

Our next game is away at Bacup on Monday 13th June so hopefully the temperature will be warmer than minus 5

18/5/16 Accrington U15s 76 all out, Rawtenstall U15s 64 for 9 after 20 overs

Accrington won their first game of the season after a great team performance on a lively wicket.

In a low scoring run fest Accrington were bowled out in the 15th over for 76 runs. Ben Ross 15 runs and Bailey Chamberlain 11 runs being the only players to get into double figures on a pitch that the ball lifted and moved.

The fielding was excellent from everyone which helped with some great bowling figures.

Thomas Walker 3 Overs, 0 Maidens, 5 runs, 1 wicket
