Boys' Cricket: U12A vs Summer Fields Touring

Boys' Cricket: U12A vs Summer Fields Touring

We were so excited to be able to host Summer Fields school with their first match on their tour of Scotland. It was a sunny Sunday in Dunbar and our first match started at 11:00.

Summer Fields won the toss and batted first, they got straight into the action. Summer Fields batted started slowly but pushed on well throughout their innings. They made 119-9 after their innings. Wilbur and Harry B being the pick of the bowlers.

Summer Fields bowled really well, Belhaven only managing to make 58-7 off our full 20 overs. Laurie and Harry both batting well.

We decided to play a mixed teams match in the afternoon which is one of the best spirited cricket matches I have ever seen. The two schools mixed so well and go to know each other over the course of the match. The match went down to the final ball with William having to not get out to help his team to win. William calmly defended the ball and his teammates sprinted onto the field hugging and jumping up and down in celebration.

Well done to both teams for a brilliant day, starting Summer Fields off on a very enjoyable tour of Scotland, I have no doubt.
