Shiplake triumph

SHIPLAKE COLLEGE U14A ran out winners away to Hampshire’s LORD WANDSWORTH COLLEGE U14s.

SHIPLAKE COLLEGE U14A ran out winners away to Hampshire’s LORD WANDSWORTH COLLEGE U14s.

Shiplake’s bowlers found early swing and were well supported in the field. Sammy Mendis (2-16) and Harry Emmanuel (2-17) helped reduce the hosts to 97-8 after just 21 overs.

Young and Bentley survived some early partnership scares with some frenetic running between the wickets. Largely hitting straight, Cooper hit two sixes and nine fours as he struck 78 not out from the last nine overs.

Shiplake’s openers Matt Dalrymple and Henry Atkinson were not in awe of chasing down 183 for victory from their 30 overs. An opening partnership of 41 from five overs gave first Miles Bridgman and then Will Gresswell the time to play themselves in when the openers fell in quick succession.

Gresswell was the first to his 50 and he was soon followed by Bridgman. With the Lord Wandsworth College fielders back on the distant boundaries Gresswell and Bridgman ran their way to victory with some well-judged twos.

Bridgman hit the winning boundary as Shiplake raced to victory by eight wickets.
