3rds beat Copsewood

AMCC 265 for 9 win vs Copsewood CC 1st XI 154 all out

Batting first on a greenish but dry track never looked an easy option, however by starting with two attacking batsmen proved a good initiative with Owais Mohammend and U14 Khayam Khan attacking positively to get a quick 50 in place before all of the opposition even got onto the pitch.

Quick wickets fell so u15 Zafran Habibs 31 holding the innings together was in valuable before a partnership of 85 by Stuart Norris (49) and skipper Dave Woakes 48 not out which started slowly and then finished with some excellent late hitting stretched the opposition.

An early wicket for u15 spinner Hamza Ajmal Akhtar handling the pressure of opening the innings brilliantly (a lad with a great attitude and future) started the push to victory, where although some steady batting by Copsewoods middle order moved the score onto 120 for 3 the pressure was building.

Step forward the experience of Steve Knowles, held back till after the drinks break his 7 overs where unplayable finishing off the visitors defence with a superb 6 for 25 taking the team to an excellent victory over a side full of experience and no youth.
