Notable Fielding Performances: I think it’s fair to say that the U14s are a fantastic fielding unit as they only had one misfiled the whole game but took 10 catches all of a very high quality. The two outstanding catchers would be Zak Mosam at slip and Monty Cowgill at short extra cover taking a diving one-handed catch.

Denstone won the toss and bowled first. The Trent opening batters looked very organised but Denstone were able to bowl to their field and build pressure early. The wickets started coming and did not stop as Denstone took a steady flow of wickets. Denstone managed to use 9 bowlers and everyone took a wicket apart from Captain, Monty Cowgill but we can let him off as he was busy taking a game-changing catch.

The Denstone batters headed out to the crease and started very slow and steady a mixture of Trent bowling well and the batters giving themselves time to get in. The Denstone batters went at a comfortable rate of around 4 an over but then when they got passed the tenth over with only losing one wicket the batters changed gear and moved towards the Trent total at speed and got there with an over to spar. The only downside to what was a fantastic game of cricket was that we did not manage to give more batters the opportunity but like our last game, we will spin the order for our last fixture on Sunday to keep giving as many players as possible the opportunity to learn and develop.

Result: Denstone won by 9 wickets.
