Latest news, including two wins from two on Sunday

Morning members,

The sun shone yesterday in every sense on LMVCC yesterday with both our adult teams securing excellent wins.

Earlier in the week we had one junior game with our U13s scoring an impressive 137-5 thanks to an outstanding 37* from Saul Lindsay and 30 from Noah Klippin. Unfortunately, the boys were less impressive with the ball and Mill Hill Village scored the runs with an over to spare for the loss of 5 wickets (Liam, Saul, Dexter and Kiran in the wickets).

Onto yesterday and at Potters Bar CC our 1st team took on Oaklands CC in a friendly, amassing 227-6 off their allotted 40 overs ,with Jonny Lubin hitting 58, Benjy Lovat 48 and Ben Leders 35. In reply, we restricted Oaklands to 194, Steven Allweis leading the attack with 3 wickets.

Over at Kenton CC, our 2s had their second Chess Valley League Div 2 game. Put into bat on a small, fast-scoring ground, those present were treated to an incredible innings from 16 year old Ben Musikant who scored 159 not out off 136 balls, as well as Jonny Feigenbaum rolling back the years scoring 35 which left Vale on 282-9 off our allotted 45 overs.

After Harry Brand literally broke the stumps second ball to remove Kenton's opener, Kenton used their local knowledge to keep the scoreboard ticking over but were kept in check by a superb, mature spell of left arm spin by Rafi Quint (15 years old) who bowled 10 overs on the bounce for only 37. At the other end, Jacob Cowan (17 yrs old) showed incredible maturity as the Kenton batsman attacked his off spin, taking 6 wickets for 74 from his 10 overs. Despite a few scares towards the end, Vale kept their calm and ran out winners by 13 runs with Kenton all out off the first ball of the last over.

So pleasing to see all our youth talent to the fore...

Four junior games this week to look forward to (and for Anthony Wise to keep on top of), including two for our U11s with 20 different players getting a game across those two matches - great to see.
