Under 7s Champions

July 3rd 2015

An Under 7 SCC squad were invited to play in an Under 7 Herongate CC tournament.

The SCC squad enjoyed 2 pretty comfortable wins against Brentwood CCs A and B team before facing Herongate in the final.
Shenfield started badly with 2 early run outs but Matthew Yip and George Sapsford rebuilt with a partnership of 22 from their 2 overs. Tom Lyons and Oliver Cockerell were also on good form with the bat and helped SCC to a total of 60 from 10 overs.

Herongate started well before 2 quick wickets from Sapsford, the 2nd of which came from a spectacular Matthew Yip catch. Oliver Cockerell also bowled a really tight over. However Herongate were not beaten and they too rebuilt and were looking favourites needing just 7 from the last over with 2 strong batters at the crease. Violet Field bowled the crucial over and did not disappoint. Despite conceding a boundary off her first ball she took a wicket with her 3rd ball meaning HCC needed 9 from 3 balls. Another boundary followed before 2 excellent deliveries meant Shenfield won by 3 runs.

The squad celebrated in style and are very eager for more cricket matches in the coming weeks to further develop their skills.
