9/7/13 – Cove U17 Boys v Eversley

Batting first Cove made hard work as a number of batsmen got in then got out. Jake Roylance scored 30 before hitting across the line and being bowled and Rhys Merrifield scored 14 before playing a similar shot. There were no other significant scores but the total kept ticking mainly thanks to 47 extras given by the opposition. A late flurry from George Roylance9 (18no) and Jamie Glanville (19) saw the total to 171 for 8, but not a big total with some very small boundaries.

Eversley started well but they struggled against some tight bowling and some dreadful bounces. George Roylance 2 for 14 starred with the ball but Tom Redhead’s 2 for 29 was very creditable. Eversley scored 153 for 7 and Cove ran out winners by 18 runs.
