U11 win County Cup for third year!

The Under 11s secured a superb 19 run victory in the final of the County Cup on Tuesday night in Winchester against one of the finest junior cricket clubs in Hampshire – St Cross Symondians. Winning the toss and batting first we amassed 138 for 6 off our 20 overs with contributions from a number of the top order (George O’Connor 26, Jack Pocock 30, Max Guibeleguiet 24, Rollo Harrap 17 and Arthur Johnson 21). Odiham felt 120 would be an average score, and so were delighted with the above par total.
Bowling in the deteriorating light, the bowling and fielding was as of the highest standard (5 run outs) and St Cross we all out for 115. All the bowlers contributed with wickets for Rollo Harrap (3-24), Arthur Johnson 1-12 and George Acheson- Gray (1-26).
A win by 23 runs was the result of a lot of hard work through the summer and a wonderful TEAM performance with every boy, not just those mentioned, contributing to the convincing victory.
In a further bid for silverware, the Under 11s entertain Hook on Saturday at home in the final of the North District Cup. The match will start at 9.30am; all are welcome.
