Andersson helps hosts to Twenty20 honours
Published 30/06/14



HOSTS Reading Blue Coat ran out winners of their own Twenty20 festival held at their Sonning school on Thursday of last week.

Five other teams, including Shiplake College, competed in the tournament in which more than 2,000 runs were scored and 100 wickets taken.

The host school drew Shiplake College in the first round and an impressive bowling display from the Sonning-based team led to a rapid fall of wickets and Shiplake were bowled out for 78 runs inside 15 overs.

Bowlers 17-year-old Martin Andersson, who has represented Middlesex 2nds, took four wickets for 11 runs and Year 11 Sam Gemmill, from Caversham, took 3-13.

Year 11 Tom Halson batsman scored 46 in a run chase that took just eight overs.


In the second round, the Blue Coat team produced another dominant bowling display that left little for the batsmen to do.

John Hampden Grammar School reached 88 off their allotted 20 overs with Year 13 Oscar Woodbridge taking 3-20 and Tom Halson 3-5. Sonning’s Year 12 Ben Butler was the top run scorer, making 33 in the successful pursuit of the 89-run target.

In the final, Blue Coat played Forest School where the visitors bowled first and took wickets at regular intervals to restrict the home side to 157 runs. Andersson was the top scorer with 57 runs.

The Blue Coat bowling proved too strong and Forest failed to threaten the posted target as they were bowled out for 77 inside 18 overs. Andersson took 2-13 and Gemmill 3-11.
