Cricket Update

Simon Roche, Master i/c Cricket, writes: The St Edward’s cricket season has started amongst the April showers and the 1st XI have achieved four wins in four games. Sadly, due to the April showers, no other teams have played competitively as yet. That the 1st XI have played any cricket at all is testament to Bob Bowerman and his team of grounds’ staff. In their first game the 1st XI beat Gloucestershire U18s by one wicket, thanks to a heroic last wicket stand of 34 from Guy Deasy and Jamie Curtis, and three wickets each from Tom Powell and Harrison Ward. Then came The Cryptics, a game which the 1st XI won by 72 runs thanks to a five wicket haul from Jamie Curtis (5-33), Brandon Allen’s assured 49, and a precocious 40 from William Pickford. Oxfordshire’s U17s were beaten by 30 runs thanks to 65 from Brandon Allen, and 3 wickets apiece for James Woodcock and Jamie Curtis. On Saturday the opposition was The Oratory (on a day that featured snow, hail, and rain), and although the game had to be reduced to 30 overs the captain (AJ Woodland) manged to score 105 not out and seal a 22 run victory. With a drier week predicted let’s hope that the 1st XI can continue this unbeaten march.
