The season has come around quickly after the Easter holidays. Lets hope the weather stay like it was over Easter!
We start our practice sessions on Monday 29th April (6.30-8.00pm) and will be running two groups. The under 13 squad has 7 games lined up starting in June and we will be proudly wearing our new Oak structures sponsored shirts. Our thanks go to Clint and the team at Oak Structures for their support.
As usual the emphasis will be on fun, helping the kids develop as players and developing a sense of team which is fundamental to the ethos of the club. I look forward to seeing familiar faces and hopefully a few new members down at the ground.
2ND JUNE - APPLETON CC (A)
Peover’s youngsters finished a difficult weekend for the club on a high with an excellent win away at Appleton. Skipper Hedley Nightingale won the toss and elected to field on a damp morning. Oli Perry and Will Bolton bowled tidily before being replaced by Alex and Will Goodyer who returned figures of 4-5 in his 3 overs. Charlie Alex and James all bowled tight spells and the fielding was excellent with 3 catches and 2 run outs. Alfie Whittaker kept wicket tidily on his birthday only conceding 1 bye in 20 overs. Peover dismissed Appleton for 51 in the final over.
Peover set about the run chase in a forthright fashion with Will Goodyer 11 Hedley Nightingale 20 no and Alfie Whittaker 14 no passing the target in 4.5 overs.
Peover Entertain Alvanley at Wellbank Lane on Sunday.
25TH MAY - BARROW CC (A)
Peover travelled to Barrow on a damp morning for their first game of the NCJCA Season.
Peover batted first and posted a creditable 83 in their allotted 20 overs. Importantly the side was not bowled out and showed resolute defence in particular Will Goodyer and W Boulton. Hedley Nightingale made a quickfire 25 before retiring.
Barrow reached their target in 14 overs – Peover’s bowling was more accurate and this enabled the Barrow batsmen to work the ball around the field. Skipper Nightingale rotated his attack and all 10 outfielders we able to bowl, whilst Sam Mendham kept wicket tidily.
Peover travel to Appleton on Sunday.
