The Junior section is growing and we hope to arrange a few extra games for our more junior games to introduce them to the excitement of playing in a game situation.
Junior practice is on a Monday evening and is always a highlight of the week with up to 30 Juniors making up the squad. The club is working hard to reach out to expand this further and we are in dialogue with several local schools to expand, as well as hosting a Cricket themed assembly at Over Peover School.
The club is always looking to attract new members and supporters so please encourage anyone who is interested in playing to get in touch either direct or via the web site – there have been a number of new members in both the senior and junior sections which is a source of great encouragement as we strive to develop the club.
Whether you are a player, supporter or parent I hope you have an enjoyable and successful season and look forward to catching up with you at some point.
17TH JUNE U13 XI v GRAPPENHALL CC
The Under 13 XI played their second game of the season on Sunday entertaining Grappenhall at Wellbank Lane.
Peover won the toss and elected to bowl, in front of a decent crowd of Parents and Grandparents. Wickets fell on a regular basis as the Peover bowlers led by Sam Croxton bowled a much improved line. Ed Thomas 36 was the mainstay of the Grappenhall innings as they closed on 97.
In reply Peover lost early wickets and wickets at important times as Grappenhall bowled accurately. Sam Croxton top scored with 31 as Peover fell 17 short of the total in the final over.
Peover travel to Lymm next Sunday.
10TH JUNE U13 XI v CHRISTLETON CC
Peover’s Under 13s travelled to Christleton on a hot Sunday morning for their first match of the season.
Christleton chose to bat on a hard wicket and immediately started to make in roads into the Peover batting order. Hari Lal held the innings together will a well constructed 22. Peover were dismissed for 56.
Good fielding and accurate bowling ensured that Christleton had to work hard for their victory but in the end experience and the fact that the team were older than our boys told.
Lots of positives to take into next weeks game vs Grappenhall @ OPCC.
