HYTHE + DIBDEN U15's 126
- 5 SWAY U15's 153 - 8 Report by Dave Hurrell
Sway under 15's made it 3 wins in succession when overcoming Hythe and Dibden by
27 runs at Jones Lane.
With manager Dennis "Claudio" Allport away on holiday taking a chunk of the team
with him, the side were guided by the ultra knowledgeable John Bailey and Andy
Balcombe and on winning the toss had no hesitation in batting first.
Seb Harris and Tom Burton opened and Harris dispatched the first ball for 4,
however in trying to repeat the shot he was caught on the boundary bringing in
Daniel Bailey. Burton and Bailey dominated the bowling both hitting 2 sixes and
4 fours and both retiring with Joshua Bailey and Giacomo Bigazzi replacing them.
Hythe now got back into the game with D.Duell bowling Bigazzi and young spinner
J.Holloway claiming a hat trick! with Sway tumbling from 121 - 1 to 124 - 6.
Bethan Marshall had come to the wicket and watched all this happen whilst not
facing a single ball ( probably reminiscent of past holidays with her father
floundering around around at the other end ) she was now joined by Bradley
Balcombe and they with the help of Thomas Clowes and Arthur Lomax pushed the
score on and Burton was back in for the last two deliveries missing the first
then planting a six over third man to leave the final score on 153.
W.Ladbury and Duell opened for Hythe with J.Bailey taking a caught and bowled to
remove Ladbury for 13, Balcombe also then caught and bowled K.Taylor leaving
Hythe on 21 - 2. Duell and Ben Jones repaired the damage and Duell retired on
41, before the vital wicket of big hitting Sam Fenton who was run out with Malo
Holden and D.Bailey combining well. D.Bailey and Freddie Pearson bowled some
vital overs before Balcombe 2 - 25 and Burton with another caught and bowled
kept Hythe in check with the hosts finishing 27 runs short with B.Jones unbeaten
