Well we won 9 league games out of 11, we won 1 cup game out of 3, played well with spirit but never won the trophy i thought we might. To be fair we lost to a very good Cornwood Dels twice and Yelverton(mt. House Superstars) once. They did not get that team out again!!! The only loss i wasnt happy with was ****** ******* but these things happen so Im told. Jono finshed the season strongly looking like the batsman we remember from last season top score 75 no. He wa his usual steady self with the gloves Clare just batted really well and plundered lots of runs from boys surprised to see her hitting them for 6 iHer top score was 55 no. Stevie was a bit disappointed with his batting and did not get the rub of the green in decisions. His top score was 29. Bowling was a bit mixed as well but he took vital wickets against Yelverton with 3 for 19 and 3 for 3 against Tideford. Nick Fennell batted quiite well and scored 19 against Cornwood but he scored consistently and always fielded well. Harrison Reburn showed real promise opening the batting, 18 no was his top score. George Price scored lots of runs in the middle order and has improved a lot. Top score 31no. Ben Carwithen batted unluckily at the start of the season with top score 8. Great catches saw his dismissal many times. He scored 7 no in the last game showed a return to form. Barney Couldwell had his best season by improving his batting, top score 37 no, his bowling was very good with a steady number of wickets opening the bowling, his best was 4 for 10 in the opening game. Ben Singlehurst improved his batting top score 16 no and fielding with some out standing displays. His bowling was a lot better and he generally could be relied upon to get a wicket when we needed one. Best figures were 5 for 11. A very promising cricketer. Tom Sparrow joined us late but showed the rest how to catch and bowling his golden arm performances were outstanding. Best was 4 for 27 against Whitchurch. Jack Dodge regularly took wickets and fielded well. His hard hitting perfornances with the bat at the end won us the game against Yelverton. Best bowling was 3 for 13. Joshua Dale Burrows played with enthusisim and bowled in the middle of an innings and always bowled tightly best was 1 for 6. Travis Collins after recovering from his broken arm took some crucial wickets in the middle 3 for 15 and showed his batting had improved with 7 off 4 balls against Yelverton. Also played Patrick Price and Sammy Khan both bowled a few overs but fielded well and were cruical members of the team.
I would like to thank Steve for umpiring, Mike for collecting the money and both of you helping with the training. Thanks to Callum + senior members of the club for the coaching and their enthusiasim. Also Glen and Caroline for stepping in when needed and all parents for supporting and transporting their children. Special thanks to Stevie Colmer for captaining the side again. It is a hard but a rewarding and frustating job. Well thats it I hope to see you all back next year in the U15 grade. martin
We played our last game against Plymstock and won to finish the season trophyless but close again with no cigars. We batted first and made 138 for 3 in 18 overs of a rain shortened game.Jono 50 retired starring along with Clare 31 including 2 sixes. George continued his fine form with 14 Nick was 15 no and Ben C 7 no after a run of ducks while Stevie made 6. Plymstock never challenged and finished with 72 for 9. Barney 2 for 10, Ben S 2 for 16. Golden arm Tom S 2 for 7, Travis C 1 for 7 , Stevie 1 for 17 and a likely challenger for bowler of the year wicketkeeper Jono 1 for 1 off 1. While Jack forgot to tell Glen so he missed the game. We all have them. 10 players again but never mind.

Peverell Under 13 suffered a blip in their desire to get second place. A long trip to Lewdown saw us all over the place literally. We just could not get ther openers out. Four catches went down the ball was flying everywhere and Lewdown battered us to all sides of very short boundaries and they had a bit of luck. T Pearce scored 108 and if we had caught him we would have won, but they had it won at 180 for 2 and good luck to him, he played with a smile on his face and was trying all sorts of outrageous shots. Ben S finally got him out and was the best bowler 4 0 21 1 the rest well the best you can say they stuck to it under heavy bombardment and only gave away 4 wides. In reply with Jono out first ball it was left to Claire scoring 32 and George 25 and Barney 37no we closed at 138 for 6 a respectable effort. It was another one of those games, one player from North Devon made all the difference. Well done Lewdown we were made welcome and they delayed the start for one of our cars that had a faulty sat nav.I got home at 10:30pm feeling everything but happy. However happy was just around the corner as on Thursday we met Whitchurch and once again the openers were difficult to dislodge. The bowling was tighter and the fielding was a lot better (only one dropped catch) so even though we could not get anyone out they never really got out of sight. Whitchurch closed on 145 for 4. Ben S went for 21 off 4, Barney 22 off 4, Josh 10 off 2. Star of the show was Tom Sparrow 4 overs 4 for 27, well done Tom. I thought we could get them and when Jono hit 15 off the first over, i was sure. Harrison perished and then Claire joined Jono and we were treated to some beautiful batting getting the total with 2.3 overs left, and a win by 9 wickets. Claire 55no and Jono 75no both chanceless, well done both of you, you made an old man happy again.

Plymouth Peverell fielded and bowled as badly as i have ever seen for 25% of the match even when they were u11 they were better than today. 30 wides again, at half way (10 overs) Plympton St Maurice were 64 for 0 and looking at 140+ but Peverell finally joined in the game with the spark coming from Travis Collins taking 3 for 15 and newcomer Tom Sparrow 4 overs 2 for 18, Ben and Barney both bowled well in their second spells for each to take 1 for 18 off 4 overs. Tom and Jono both took 2 good catches while Stevie took a big one Peverell fought back to hold Plympton to 116 for 8. In reply Peverell opened brightly and scored at a good rate with Jono 25 looking in good touch and Harrison showing a lot of potential with 11. Claire played beautifully with a 33 ball half century including 6 fours and another mighty 6. The coach retired her to give others a go and Stevie 18no and George 3no saw us home with 3.4 overs to spare by 8 wickets. Well done guys for 75% of the game. Lets get the other 25% and we can keep winning.

Unfortunately on a night when Plymouth had to field a weakened side they found Plympton just too strong. In the absence of Dan Goodey, Lewis and Luke Edmonds opened the batting but the normally reliable Lewis went for 0 caught off the bowling of Gannon. Rhys Callicott and Joe Hagen-Burt managed 11 and 18 respectively but Plymouth were restricted to 86 for 8 off the 20 overs.
In reply Plympton quickly killed the game off winning with 6 wickets in hand.
Matt Borbon top scored with 21 before eventually being run out.
A big thankyou to the three under 11 players, Luke Edmonds, Joe Hagen-Burt and Finn Bartlett who came in to the side and played exceptionally well. Thanks also to Tom Swabey who stepped in to keep wicket at the last minute.
Next up is the match against Plymouth Peverell when hopefully we can field a stronger line up.
Plymouth combined U13 team got sunk by Cornwood in the ECB cup. It all started so well Matt Schemmer the best player in his age group in Devon out first ball bowled by Dan Goodey, other Plymouth highlights were Ben Singlehurst stopping almost everything on the boundary, Barney taking 2 wickets at the end, Luke Edmonds stepping in at the last minute and fielding well, Nick Fennell scoring 19 and Jono scoring 13no returning to form. Lowlights too many to mention just to say Cornwood were excellent and won and we were about 35th.
