SWJCL Under 13's v Mid Glamorgan U 13's

Played at Ystradfechan, Treorchy on Sunday 6th May 2007

Losing the toss the League were asked to bat and captain Gareth George (Llangennech) and Miles Murphy (Gorseinon) got off to a brisk start being harsh on anything short, but Mid Glam hit back getting both openers and Cameron Protheroe (Mumbles) in quick succession to leave the league in a spot of bother but good partnerships between firstly Owen Morgan (Llangennech) and Rhys Matthews (Gorseinon), and then Owen Morgan and Gethin Long (Llangennech) repaired some of the damage. The league threatened to pull away on several occasions but good bowling and a slow outfield kept pegging them back. It was only when Sam Davies (Gowerton), Thomas Carey (Pontarddulais) and Ian Coates (Civil Service) came in that the league really started to get going and they got the score up toward 150 with the league closing on 141 9. This was a very creditable performance on a very big ground with what proved to be a more difficult wicket than first thought.

With 142 to chase Mid Glam set off as if they wanted to get the game over in 10 overs with both openers striking the ball well, they rattled along at a rate of well over 5 an over. Under extreme pressure from the opening batsmen both league Thomas Carey and Chris Jenkins (Gorseinon) kept their discipline and to their credit both openers were removed in the space of 5 balls. The score went from 48 0 to 49 2 and the league never looked back. Ian Coates with two wickets, Sam Davies one and an excellent bit of fielding which produced a run out kept the pressure on.

Mid Glam briefly threatened to rally but the introduction of the left arm spin of Owen Morgan bowling in tandem with Gethin Long put an end to the resistance. Gethin bowled a very tight line and length which stopped Mid Glam scoring and Owen bowled superbly taking the last 4 wickets to finish with 2.5 1 1 4.

A mention here to wicket keeper David Phillips (Mumbles) who was very good all day and capped his performance with a very sharp stumping off Owen. Mid Glam ended 90 all out and a 51 run win was recorded. A large part of this performance was the way the side worked as a unit the team spirit was excellent throughout and that really pulled them through in the early part of the Mid Glam innings.

This was a very good performance against a very good Mid Glam side, we are really looking forward to the return match later in the year. We must now build on this when we take on Pembroke this Sunday at Gorseinon CC.  Start time is 1230 hrs for anyone who wants to come along.
