Cricket Reports for Our U12B, Junior 2, U14 and 6-a-side Teams

1 Jul 22

It’s a busy time in School for sports, especially as Sports Day took place this week. Meanwhile in cricket we’ve various matches from our U12B, Junior 2, U14 and 6-A-Side teams to report. 

Woodbridge U12B vs. RGS – Match Report from Mr Simpson 

Fielding first and with several younger players from our Prep School representing the U12A team, the bowling was accurate and very effective, with every bowler contributing in the attack and restricting the scoring prowess of the RGS batters.  Wickets fell evenly throughout the innings and with the support of the fielders the RGS batting team were restricted to 87 runs.  

The Woodbridge team then went in to bat and despite the regular loss of wickets, the score continued to climb, with the help of some (at times) rather frantic running between the wickets.  In the end, Will and Dexter’s partnership of 25 ensured that the team reached its target of 88 with 3 overs to spare and with 3 wickets remaining.   

A fantastic result for a very young side. 

Woodbridge Junior 2 vs RHS – Match Report from Mr Simpson 

Woodbridge batted first on a glorious afternoon opening with Angus and Liam, who made steady progress.  Making their way to 33, before in the 8th over Angus was bowled, quickly followed by the loss of Liam, Arlo and Harry, meaning that the team were 40 for 4 from 10 overs, a quick rebuild was required.  Up stepped Theo and Charlie who steadied the ship before putting together a partnership of 38 runs in 6 overs, Charlie was out with the score on 78, before Oliver came into bat and with Theo move the score to 110 from our 20 overs, Theo finishing on 22 not out.  

In reply, the RHS batters started quickly with 11 off the first over and pushing to finish the game quickly!  However, some strong bowling from Charlie, Angus and Arlo ensures that from the next 6 overs, just 10 runs were scored, putting the pressure onto the RHS batters to score quickly or lose the game.  The bowling continued to be excellent and the runs just never came.  Wickets started to fall and the Woodbridge side were in control throughout the match, and with the bowlers sharing the wickets around the RHS team finished their overs 25 runs short with 8 wickets lost.   

A comprehensive win on a glorious afternoon. 

6-a-side week – Report from Mr Simpson 

Three teams took part in the 6-a-side competition at St Joe’s this week, the U13 boys, U13 girls and U12 boys.  The tournaments were all about fun, enjoyment and learning; playing a new style of the game and trying new things, whilst testing skills.  

Every day the students were tested and equipped themselves excellently; they were a credit to the School and the learning that has taken place over the last nine months of cricket.  The results…well if I’m  honest I didn’t write them down – it was a conscious decision because the main objective of the week was fun and enjoyment, which all children and myself had plenty of! 

Well done all that took part in the week.  

 Woodbridge U14 Girls – Match Report from Matt Davis  

It was unfortunate that our opponents were terribly delayed on their journey to us and so we had to play a slightly reduced match.  Woodbridge bowled and fielded really well and managed some sharp run-outs.  Thanks to some excellent batting we easily over-hauled Culford’s score by 7 wickets.  A very good match after a long wait – and the team even got their photo taken with Australian professional cricketer Peter Hatzoglou who will be playing in the Hundred later this summer.
