Under 9As lose by a run in nail-biter against Cumnor

We lost the toss and were put in to bat.

Copthorne scored 211, with no single batsman really making a big score though Zac (8), Charlie (7) and Freddie (6) were our top three run-scorers.  Luke and Bradley also contributed nicely with 5 runs each.

In reply, Cumnor made 212, beating us by a single run.  This was a tense and exciting game, with every single ball gaining in importance as the came reached its climax.  Unfortunately we ended up narrowly losing, and regretting every small mistake that we had made.  The important thing is to take some positive memories from our performance; both teams played very well.  Our outstanding bowlers were Josh who took 1 wicket for 4 runs, Nemo, 1 for 7, Bradley 1 for 9 and Kieron 2 for 18.  Nick, Charlie and Zach all took a wicket each too, and special mention goes to Ayaan for catch of the day, with a good take in the deep on the leg side.

Well played to all the boys, a shame to lose by such a small margin, but a very exciting game!
