Ramsbottom Under 18s v Greenmount Under18s – 19 August 2022
RCC 91 for 8 (20 overs) GCC 92 for 3 (17.4 overs)
On a warm evening at Acre Bottom, the Greenmount Capt called wrongly and Seb chose to bat making the most of the light.
Seb scored quickly and retired 52* off 48 balls with eight 4s and one 6. With a few of our usual top order on holiday, we struggled to score at a run a ball and wickets fell regularly. Some tight Greenmount bowling meant that nobody else managed to get into double figures and we stuttered to a below par 91 run total.
Having bowled out Greenmount cheaply earlier in the season, the Rammy team had plenty of belief when they took the field and they were lifted again when Seb grabbed an unbelievable full diving catch at cover to remove the Greenmount capt. A second wicket fell quickly and Rammy had their tails up. But the brotherly partnership of Henry and Ed batted well to cruise towards their target with more than 2 overs to spare. Highlights in the bowling:
Toby Ashworth 4-1-11-1
Toby Anderson 3-0-11-2
With two games remaining our young team are looking forward to closing out the season well, hopefully roared on by the Rammy faithful at Acre Bottom for both games.
