STOOLBALL: Robertsbridge Ladies travelled to Pett last Tuesday with an inexperienced side including 6 under 19’s. The hosts batted first and an opening partnership of 29 between Erin[22] and Lou[12] was broken when Erin was caught by Sarah Clark off the bowling of Penny Clark[1-11] and 5 runs later Jackie[4] was run out. Lou was run out with the score on 62 but a partnership of 60 between Sophie[27] and Janet[55] steadied the innings before Sophie was caught by debutant Kate off the bowling of Lou Taylor[1-11] and the very next ball young Olly was bowled by another Debutant Brogan[1-16]. Janet was run out with the score on 143 and just 5 runs later Josh[11] was caught by Lou off the bowling of young Izzy Sullivan[1-11] which left Sam[3n.o.] and Gemma[7n.o.] to complete their 11 overs on 157-7. Lou[14] and Penny[12] put on 29 before Penny was caught and 10 runs later Lou was run out. Charlie Apps[3] was bowled on 43 but a partnership of 28 between Lucy Kuhler[23n.o.] and Keira[11] steadied the innings before Keira was caught and 2 runs later Brogan[1] was bowled which bought in Kate[7n.o.] to end our innings on 93-5. The Mixed team hosted Civil Service last Thursday in a 10 over match with The Bridge batting first with an opening partnership of 54 between Ian Kitson[22] and Penny Clark[13] but they both lost their wickets in the third over which bought in skipper JJ Boast[63] and Sarah Clark[4] into the fray but 7 runs were added before Sarah was caught. Lou Taylor[2] joined JJ to put on 38 before she was run out and then Lisa Fifield[4] was also run out with the score on 129. Three runs later JJ was caught which left Di Kitson[9] and Tom Ripley[2] to stop the rot but Tom was caught on 138 and then Jack Dean was caught next ball which bought in Callum Apps[3n.o.] who with Di put on 9 runs before Di was caught. Young Jack Ripley[0n.o.] joined Callum to end our 10 overs on 148-9. The visitors lost Sarah[9] on 17 when Jack Dean[1-15] clean bowled her but then a 64 partnership between Ian[44] and Elissa[37n.o.] steadied the innings but the partnership was broken when Ian was caught by JJ off the bowling of Lou[1-24] however Ben[55n.o.] saw Civil Service win by 13 runs.
