Year 7

Cairns Development beat South Canterbury

Played at the Aorangi Oval in Timaru. Cairns won the toss and opted to bat on a hard wicket and the soft out field. Dominic Cornish and Declan Hickford opened the batting and saw us off to a good start with an opening partnership of 39. Matthias Paltridge (51 runs) continued on with Dominic until the loss of the second wicket for 52. Tom Dunlop (59* runs) and Matthias then batted on to a 104 run partnership. With boundaries hard to come by both boys ran hard putting pressure on the field in a confident display. Sam Blake (10* runs) came at the fall of the third wicket and scored fast runs to see the team finish the 40 overs at 182 for 3.

With ball in hand we expected a difficult task to restrict the South Canterbury team. Their opening partnership kept us out and the first wicket fell in the 14th over. To the boys credit they bowled straight and full and wickets came with ease when the opening partnership fell. The key bowling came from Sam Blake 3/7, Jackson Pauling 3/5 and Josh Carrodus 3/6. South Canterbury were all out for 89 in the 33rd over.

Astle Development beat Country North 

Playing at Scargill Domain. A great setting to finish the rep season for the team. The essentials of the bbq at the end of the game was organised early in the week, with town bringing the salads and country the meat.

Astle won the toss and decided to bat and made good use of a pitch that had enough in for the bowlers. Bradley Entwistle and Jayden Ball had a solid opening partnership of 42, before Bradley was run out and Jayden retired on 18 (Retired batsman on 40 balls or 40 runs). This was followed by an excellent partnership between Louie Chapman and Mitchell Hay of 55 runs before Louie chasing runs holed out close to retirement for 36. Tim Boyle joined Mitchell and the runs came pretty quickly with Mitchell retiring on 33 and Tim on 36. The following batsman went hard and we finished on 176/8.

This was going to be a tough ask for Country with Astle’s strong bowling attack. A good opening from Jack-Charles Morrow (1/9 off 4) and Tom Marshall (0/13 off 4) followed by Daniel Costello (0/7), Connor Williams (1/5). All other bowlers chimed in with Ben Magson (2/7), Tim Boyle (2/9), Liam Hansen (2/8), Matt Boyles (0/3) & Mitchell (1/0). Country were all out for 83. The teams played on until Country batted out 40 overs losing a bunch of wickets on the way. The teams played in great spirit and we really enjoyed the Country hospitality – thanks to Richard Mowat and his team at Country

Fleming Development beat Country South

Played at Darfield.  Great game by the boys in very warm weather conditions. Boys batted first on a low bounce wicket and long grass outfield. The emphasis was on working singles and 2’s which they did very well (only two 4’s off the bat) – scoring 133 for 6. G Cooke 48n/o, L Foulkes 17

The boys fielded and bowled superbly which was rewarding as they worked very hard on these two elements at practice. The bowling improved out of sight with the boys bowling a good line and length and getting 9 batters out bowled and 1 LBW – Bowled opposition out for 75. Bowling – J Bradley 8/3 off 4, C Williams 3/2 off 4, H Cockram 7/2 off 4.

Hadlee Development beat Mid Canterbury

Played at Ashburton. Unfortunately we lost the toss and Mid Canterbury elected to bat. They had two very good opening batsmen but when they fell we made good in roads with some very good bowling from the team. The outstanding bowler was Jamie Gambles who took two excellent wickets, both bowled.  We bowled them out in the 40th over for 87 which included 32 extras. There were a couple of excellent catches with the standard of fielding overall very high. We chased down the runs in the 21st over only losing two wickets with Shaun Berryman 23 (retired) and Gareth Barron making 23.
