The Academy's U-15 cricket team played in the Fred Truman competition on Wednesday 17 July
We were up against a very strong Longsands team consisting of many county players but we held our own. Longsands were going at 9/10 an over for the first 7 overs and we restricted them to 128 with a fine bowling performance by P Nightingale. His figures were 4 overs 4-3
Chasing 128 we lost an early few wickets but J Hallatt hit a lot of boundaries to keep us ahead of the run rate. He retired not out on 52. Unfortunately after this we could not rotate the strike enough and just fell short.
Longsands 128 v 103 NWA
