Long Eaton A (U11) vs Spondon Red (U11)


On a glorious Sunday morning at Long Eaton, an inexperienced Spondon side, with the majority of players on debut, displayed great enthusiasm and unity. Despite being on the wrong end of the scoreline, there were a lot of positives to take from the match.


After winning the toss and fielding, Spondon restricted the opposition to 233 in their 16 overs. Ollie Kellogg put in a terrific wicket keeping performance, only conceding one bye. Left-armer, Karl Morse, managed to take an impressive 2-9 on his first appearance this season. Also taking wickets were Tom Dalziel, Tom Heaps and William Montgomery. Although wicketless, special mention should go to Kyle Ashford who bowled two overs for just one run.


After the successful first innings, and with a very real chance of victory, it was Spondon’s turn to bat. The first pairing of Kyle Ashford and Tom Heaps, scored well, but conceded 15 runs through the loss of three wickets. Kyle and Tom both scored five runs, with Tom Heaps notching his first ever boundary!


William Montgomery and Tom Dalziel were up next, protecting their wickets well.  As did Zac Barnes and Oren Morter.  Zac remained not out and scored a run on his debut.


The last pair to come in was Karl Morse and Ollie Kellogg. Ollie put in a good performance, only losing his wicket once and running very well between the stumps with his partner. Karl top scored with 11 runs, scoring one boundary and coming very close to another two.


In the end Spondon couldn’t overcome the score of 233 but finished with a positive score of 216 losing eight wickets in the process.


Overall, it was a promising display from the young Spondon side, who will be looking to improve once again next Sunday.
