All Stars at the Club

Juniors take over the ground on Sunday 19th May

Sunday saw 36 children attend the All Stars coaching session at 9.30am and meet Twinkle the All Stars mascot. 24 U8s then took part in our own tennis ball tournament whilst the U9s took on Studley. Freddie Kelley took his first wicket for the club with some accurate bowling and Atreya Bhave struck the ball hard but their efforts were in vain as the U9s were over powered by a strong Studley side.

Meanwhile the U11s were playing in a hardball fixture at Leek Wootton and put up a spirited and competitive display narrowly losing by 19 runs, having lost 4 more wickets than Leek Wootton (at a cost of 20 runs).

The afternoon saw the U13s take to the field at home versus Bablake Old Boys. Kenilworth pegged Bablake back well and contained them to 109-8. Wickets were shared around the Kenilworth bowlers with Elliott Hunter, Henry Thomas, Akaash Verma, James Hughes and Andrew O’Reilly all having success. With no one fancying the opening role, James and Henry agreed to stride to the crease and managed to see off the opening bowlers leaving Will Sheehan and Patrick to shine with the bat against the spin to place us in contention. Patrick forced to retire having scored 30 left Will batting excellently at the crease but sadly he ran out of partners and was stranded not out with 29. Kenilworth all out for 93 in the nineteenth over.

A super day’s cricket for the juniors.

Youth Cricket – Under 15’s

Kenilworth U-15’s v. Dorridge U-15’s

Below is a brief report on the latest Under 15’s match that was played yesterday at Dorridge. The lads won!

KCC U-15’s batted first and posted 101-9. Dan Roden scored 35 not out/retired and there were useful contributions from Charlie Glover, Shyann Imam and Louis Smithson.

In reply, Dorridge were bowled out for 98 with captain James Sparks taking 2-15 and Dan Roden 3-14 whilst  there was a wicket a piece from Daniel Barrie 1-14, David Knott 1-18 and Ben Gamble 1-20 as the lads all bowled 4 overs each.

The game went to the final over and the final wicket was from a run out, the second of the Dorridge innings…. Or at least we believe it was as it was so dark at that point that only the players and umpires in the middle could see what was happening! However, it was a very good game played in a very good spirit between both teams and sets of parents and officials. A good batting, fielding and economical bowling performances by the Club’s young guns to earn a good win. Well done all!

Bank Holiday Youth Cricket

YOUTH CRICKET REPORTS – MAY BH

 

A busy bank holiday weekend for Kenilworth’s junior section.

All Stars cricket coaching started on the Sunday at 9.30am and we had 36 children under the age of 9 (plus their parents) enjoying playing cricket on the field.

Immediately after All Stars, Kenilworth’s U11s took on Earlswood in a Cotswold Hills pairs match. Kenilworth bowled first and our three girls of Anita, Katie and Sophie applied pressure in the field enabling Andrew to take an Earlswood wicket. Earlswood finished on 306-1. Kenilworth put up a gutsy batting display against accurate bowling with Charlie and Archie the pick of our batsmen and we reached 183-13 in reply.

The U13s then took on Stratford on a chilly Bank Holiday Monday morning. Kenilworth put Stratford into bat who despite a slow start against Kenilworth’s opening attack of Akaash Verma and Henry Thomas soon found their stride and amassed 163-2. Akaash and Will Sheehan Kenilworth’s two wicket takers.

In reply Kenilworth relied on Will, James Hughes and Thomas Best who each struck three boundaries plus the ever reliable extras who top scored and we closed on 99-9.

The U15s took to the field in the afternoon also playing Stratford. Kenilworth this time opted to bat first and reached 112-2 in their 20 overs. Will Machin reached 35 whereupon he was required to retire. Stratford crept towards the total and reached their target in the last over finishing on 115-2.

 

KCC Softball team meet the ICC World Cup

KCC Youngsters have a fine day in the sun

 

Kenilworth’s mixed boys and girls softball cricket team had a fun and enjoyable Maundy Thursday at Stratford CC as part of the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy tour. Buoyed throughout the afternoon’s festival by Moosa’s infectious enthusiasm the team played three mini 8 over games against Dorridge, Stratford and Kenilworth Wardens. Andrew and Max showed the way in the field with some great stops, Katherine made sure the scoreboard moved on by hitting two sixes, Anita and Ebby took some fantastic catches and Henry a vital wicket. All excelled themselves and were great representatives of the club.

Well done boys and girls. Hope you had a great day!
