Andover Cricket Club Under 15 v Ropley on Fri 26 May 2017 at 1800
Andover Cricket Club Lost by 63 runs

Match report Ropley won the toss and on a warm evening, elected to bat first.

Captain Eddie George (1-32) took the new ball and the first wicket after just four balls. Joe Wheeler (50*) joined his brother Huw (18), and the two of them added a huge 91 for the second wicket, before the latter was bowled by Connor Hayward (1-16). Joe Wheeler kept going though, despite a collapse of wickets at the other end. Sam Charlton (0) was bowled by Joel Hesslegrave (1-29) for a duck and Joe Austin (2) was bizarrely run out by George after a catch was taken off a no ball and he was found short of his ground. A late spell from Erik Ahl (3-16) pegged the visitors back even more as he ripped through the Ropley middle order, but a short cameo from wicketkeeper Jack Newman (16*) saw Ropley through to the close with a mammoth 144-7.

Andover would need a brilliant start to have a chance of chasing the total, but Huw Wheeler (2-10) ensured that didn't happen, removing both openers in the first over with a frightening spell of fast bowling. Archie Simmonds (6) and Joel Hesslegrave (3) rebuilt the innings briefly, before the former was bowled by Sam Charlton (1-6). Joseph Scahill (1) came to the crease, but some tight bowling from the Ropley attack meant runs were hard to come by. Hesslegrave fell, caught behind off the bowling of Fred Coles (1-2), and from that point onwards, wickets tumbled at a steady rate. Lower order batsmen Connor Hayward (8), debutant Jamie Hood (4) and Erik Ahl (12) tried their best but it was always going to be a huge ask to chase down 145 on an unpredictable wicket, and eventually Andover were bowled out for 81.
