Our Buckhorn U9s bravely ventured to Shillingstone for their first League match of the season and came away with a pulsating one run victory!
Batting first, Buckhorn compiled 293 – 1 (not bad eh?) with double figure contributions from Milo Mounde, Henry Andrews and Cass Tatman. Our fielding was then excellent and a last over wicket from our Skipper Charlie Collins sealed the win. Fraser Wilson, Harry Morland, Oliver Price and Ned Marshall all did their bit too, with either ball or bat.
It is a real pleasure to be involved with them all and we are going to have a lot of fun this season!
My thanks to James and Martin for the help with scoring and umpiring – it was a real help and much appreciated. Thanks also to Hugh Shackell and Shillingstone for the game and their sportsmanship – cricket as it should be played.
And good luck to 1st X1 against Dorchester Casuals tomorrow.
Unfortunately the ground is still very wet….

A fantastic turn out at the Groundhog day saw a dozen helping hands, ranging from the very young to the not so young! Nets were erected, fencing repaired, artificial wicket cleaned and covers that had been blown on top of each other earlier in the week straightened out.
Thank you to everyone that attended for their sterling efforts!
