Success for Clayesmore Cricketers
We are delighted to share news of two current Year 12 pupils Josh Parsons and Will Tripcony, and OC Jacob Gordon, who played in Bashley Rydal’s winning side in the Division 2 Grand Final this weekend.
Clayesmore had strong representation in the Bashley Rydal cricket team on Saturday 19th Sept, when they took on Portsmouth and Southsea CC in the Division 2 Grand Final.
Bashley, who were fielding first started with Josh Parsons (Yr12) keeping it tight with the new ball producing an economy of 3 runs an over. Then later on Jacob Gordon (OC) helped finish the innings with a very tidy 8 overs 2 wickets for 11 runs. Giving Bashley a target of 150 to win.
After a very shaky start of 62 runs for 6 wickets, in came Will Tripcony (Yr12) to steady the ship and make a very important 23.
However, having been bowled with the score on 120, Josh Parsons was able to stay in to the end and round off what has been a short but sweet end to the summer of cricket.
Congratulations to the whole team on the win!
