Junior News – May

The BHCC Junior U13 section got their season underway with a great win at home to Whitchurch U13 in the North Shropshire Cricket Forum District League.


Whitchurch batted first and scored a total of 52 for 7 from their 20 overs, Ben Edwards (3 for 12) and Henry Preece (2 for 5) bowling very well. The same two junior members combined to open the batting and raced through to 55 for 0 to give the U13’s their first win of the 2012 season. Ben Edwards ended up with 22 not out and Henry Preece 29 not out.


The U13 team were handed a challenging tie in the Shropshire U13 knockout with a home tie vs a very strong Wellington U13 team. Wellington batted first and racked up 133 for 4 from their 20 overs with some fantastic fielding and especially catching from the BHCC youngsters. Henry Preece continued his good form for the juniors taking 3 for 28 from his overs. BHCC juniors found the runs harder to come by against a strong bowling attack made up of county and district players eventually finishing on 33 for 9 despite 14 from George Fry.
