Another victory for Peterlee u18s, 5 out 5 in the league now. A strong bowling attack from the out set from Shaun Taylor & Liam Chaytor removed the first 4 batsmen. Two outstanding runouts by Tommy Nicholson & Scott Ellis had the visitors on their knees and to top it off an outstanding catch by Ellis Dunn (one handed over the shoulder) from J Spalding’s bowling. This left Castle Eden on 59 for 7 after 20 overs.
Connor Dickinson & Liam Chaytor opened the batting and never truly looked in trouble until Connor’s unfortunate dismissal. Tommy had a short spell at the crease but was unable to find his current form. Andrew Bates joined Liam at the crease and the pair finished off the game with 6 overs left.
A fantastic all round team effort which leaves them clear at the top of the league.
After a couple of weeks playing the top sides in the league and giving them a run for their money, the U15 were back to winning ways against South Hetton this week.
Peterlee had a disappointing start with the bat but Joseph Spalding and Ellis Dunn made 24 and 25 respectively as the team reached 103 batting first.
South Hetton made a great start and at 30-1 in 6 overs wee thereabouts on the run rate required. Dunn then lead the fight back with 2 wickets in his last 2 balls including an important C&B (he’s on a hat-trick for the next game).
Some good fielding all round and tight bowling from Dan Greenfield, Dan Dryden, Joe Spalding and Niall McGoldrick built pressure and lead to wickets. South Hetton ended up 65 all out, and the points going to Peterlee.
Well done lads, great team effort.
