Hurley ease to victory

HURLEY U15s made it four wins out of six as they won their first ever match for this age group at SONNING U15s by 10 wickets on Monday of last week.

Injuries to two players in the development game on Sunday meant U13 players Ollie Dawkins and Henry Graham filled the breach in a match that saw three sets of brothers in the starting 11.

Sonning won the toss and elected to bat but failed to set a challenging score. Good bowling from all six bowlers used by replacement captain David Morgans gave the hosts few scoring opportunities with Charlie Poole taking 2-9 from his four overs and wickets apiece for Ben Poole, Ollie Wardell and Ollie Dawkins, the last of these thanks to a catch from Ben Poole at midwicket.

Michael Whittaker fielded well in the deep as Chow top scored with 24 not out but a total of 86-5 was below par on a fast outfield.

Will Krag (39 not out) and David Morgans (33 not out) opened the Hurley batting and a mixture of smart running and selective hitting made a mockery of the target, chasing it down with over half the overs left as skies darkened. Sonning rotated the bowlers in an attempt to break through but the result was all the same. Krag won the game with a six over long on.
