Ealing U9A vs Acton U9A
By Shalabh Baijal
All round performance delivers a record breaking win
Acton were the first match this group of players played against last year as U8s and whilst that was a comfortable win last year, the gulf in development and skills since then was more than evident on a sunny morning in Acton.
Acton batted first and clinical bowling and fielding (including direct hit run outs and a hat trick) resulted in 16 wickets in the 18 overs bowled - Acton's total run score of 171 being 29 below the starting 200 as runs were also restricted.
Ealing's batting was consistent throughout with meaningful contributions from all pairs - the final score of 325 resulted in a record breaking 154 run win.
