Under 11's v  Wellington  1st July 2009

The u11's took to the field against an inform Wellington side. It was going to be a hard task for the colts but at least the sun was shining. Liam won the toss and decided to bat first. The seasoned partnership of Pip and Joseph opened up but runs were hard to come by against a pacy Wellington attack. There was some fine defensive shots by Joe and Pip. Pip managed to get the only boundary of the partnership with a well hit pull shot.

Liam and Will then managed to get the runs flowing with fine boundaries from both of them. They scored an impressive 21 runs between them. the best pair of the night. Charlie and Jack were not far behind them with an equally impressive 20 runs with boundaries for both of them. With Wellington sensing that Madeley were scoring runs easily they introduced their pacy attack again. Matt and Brandon felt the full force of this but they defended their wicket well.

Jack and Cameron were the last Madeley pairing to take to the crease and with Wellington's bowlers having found their line and length they made scoring runs very difficult. However Cameron managed to hit a boundary to bring Madeley's innings to an end. Madeley finished with 229 for 5 wickets.

Wellington's batsmen were equally impressive with the bat as well as the ball. Madeley bowled and fielded well, but they were up against probably one the best teams in the league. Jack S, Charlie, Will and Cameron all managed to take wickets with the other wicket coming from a great bit of fielding leaving  Wellington's batsman short of the crease as the bails flew off the wickets. Even after Madeleys valiant efforts with the ball Wellington took the victory with an impressive 328 for 6 wickets.

Madeley played this game with true spirit and a lot of effort. well done lads.
