Croft’s U11 Pairs continue their positive start to the season, despite a second defeat
Bowling first, Avoncroft put in a solid performance with the ball in the face of some attacking Barnt Green batting. Fin Morris and Harry Senior, who was making his hard-ball debut, both picked up wickets with Kyle Shaw and Matthew Athey adding two run outs. Tom Astle (17) and Noah Pryor (9) led the way for Barnt Green who finished on 99-4 for a net score of 279.
In reply, Matthew Athey (10) and Fin Morris (10) top scored for Avoncroft but there were positive batting performances all round. Only 3 wickets were lost during their 16 over innings, which meant Croft were always in the game. Needing 24 to win off the last 3 overs, Croft still had a chance of victory, but Barnt Green’s opening bowlers returned to close out the game, leaving Croft 15 runs short on 79-3 for a net score of 264.
