U11 C Cargilfield vs U11D Cargilfield
Score: 17.5 – 8.5

U11 D team won the toss and started fielding. They did well especially as they were quick to pass the ball to each other to stop players and get a few U11Cs out. Valentina did well on the first post. Arya was well aware of what to do with the ball as the back stop and always took the right decisions when passing. Cara, Matilda, Georgia and Freya all had a go at balling. When batting, Freya and Valentina were strong batters and all the girls try their best for every ball.

The U11C girls started batting and were running fast. All their efforts paid but a few of them took too much risk and got out. On the field they had an excellent communication and Lulu, Cicely and Rose did well as ballers.
Overall it was a great match to play and the girls enjoyed playing the game on this sunny afternoon.

Won 18-16/5

It was a perfect day for a game of rounders at St Mary’s. The sun started to shine as soon as the girls got off the bus. It was a nail biting game. Flora, as captain, fed the team with words of encouragement from the start. Cargilfield started the first innings fielding. The girls used their new tactic of passing to the bowler to stop rounders being scored. Katinka, as backstop, passed the ball smoothly to Rosanna to stop several full rounders being scored. St.Mary’s made excellent contact with the ball and scored a total of 9.5 rounders in the first innings. Cargilfield followed by batting confidently but needed to hit the ball wide to score more full rounders. Laura, Flora, Emma and Catherine scored full rounders using their judgement wisely to keep running around the pitch. Cargilfield finished the first innings with 9 rounders.

In the second innings Catherine and Alannah fielded deeper to prepare to catch St.Mary’s big hits. Catherine used the long barrier a few times which helped stop the ball. Alongside Alannah’s strong throwing the girls managed to stop St.Mary’s scoring full rounders. Flora and Rosanna worked brilliantly together to stop some half rounders and stumping a few girls out. Hannah made a cracking catch when a high ball was hit. Hannah, Emma and Flora scored full rounders, mixed with the others scoring half rounders, the girls left with a win of 18-16.5. A real team effort and listening well during training. Excellent effort girls.

Cargilfield- 242 Runs
Loretto- 247 Runs

The undefeated Cargilfield U9B cricket team travelled to Loretto on an initially gloomy day, but glorious sunshine eventually broke through. William P chose to have a bat first, and he opened with Charlie SW. Losing a wicket on the first ball caused a few jitters but the pair recovered well. There was some good batting down the order, Harry B hit a sumptuous boundary, however too many run outs cost the team. With the ball now in hand, the team attempted to limit Loretto to 241 runs. The pick of the bowlers was Thabo, who bowled fantastically well only conceding one run off his final ball, and Otis W who sent down a wicket maiden in his over. Unfortunately, only that one wicket and some loose fielding meant that Loretto just managed to overtake the Cargilfield in the penultimate over, giving the U9B team their first loss of the season. Plenty of work to be done after half term on our decision making when batting and concentration in the field, but keep your heads up boys!

Cargilfield win against St Marys’s 6 ½ rounders to 3 ½.
Cargilfield loss against Loretto 2½ rounders to 4.

It was a bit nippy at Loretto but as we settled to play Loretto and St Mary’s, it started to warm up nicely. We played St Mary’s first and beat them by 6 ½ rounders to 3 ½. Lottie and Venetia shared the bowling and Lottie managed well from the official bowling square. Jasmine was the main scorer with 2 full rounders.

The game against Loretto was more of a challenge. They batted first and our fielding was reasonable with Anna taking a good catch and stumping another girl at fourth. Jasmine also did well getting someone out at second. However when we went into bat, it seemed as if we had lead in our shoes! We were running very slowly and Issy was throwing very quickly and accurately to Emily at second. This meant that unless we ran faster we were not going to score. And so it was to be! Loretto held us to 2 ½ rounders. Jasmine scored another full rounder but Anna was out straight away at second and we were unable to score our normal half rounders. We will need to practise running faster and hitting further to allow us to run round for full rounders. Never mind, it was fun and we all enjoyed ourselves!

square earlier in the season. Sophia made a good effort with bowling but it was a bit windy which allowed St Mary’s to pick up a few half rounders. Issy was a useful addition in the deep and Flora and Martha worked well with Amy at backstop to limit their scoring. When it was our turn to bat we clocked up quite a few half rounders. Flora made a spectacular run towards fourth for a full rounder but was just pipped to it by St Mary’s back stop. However, we pulled off our first victory of the season.

Cargilfield 6 ½ St Marys 5 ½

We fielded first against Loretto and buoyed by our win in the previous match were very much focused and working hard. Loretto made some plucky attempts to reach second and fourth and ended the innings with 5 rounders. Flora was on fire today and her batting was excellent. She was definitely our player of the match scoring a rounder and two half rounders. Issy also scored well with a rounder and a half. It was all to play for at 20 balls as we drew level with 5 rounders each, Sophia and Flora took us to victory scoring off the last few balls.

We were delighted when Loretto contacted us last week to see if we would like another match against them as we both had no match scheduled. With the game at Newfield ending so close, it was sure to be another good match. This time we had lost Nico and Charlie to the 1st XI but they were replaced by the equally effective Todd and Rory.
We were put into bat and our opening pair of Freddie and Edo fell quickly. However, Todd and Otis came in to steady the ship scoring a 44 partnership before Todd was retired on 25. Otis was bowled just after and Tom and Rory scored a quick 42 from 22 balls before Rory was retired on 29 and Tom was run out after being rather casual at running between the wickets. The player at Long On (who took 3 run outs today) threw to the other end and with Tom’s back turned and not sliding in his bat, he was gone. We made a strong total of 139 with one ball left in the 20 overs.

After tea, Loretto started well through the talented Zaara who scored 43 before being caught behind from Ramsay’s delivery by Lachie who is an ever-improving wicket keeper. Two wickets from Alex P gave us the control of the match and despite the best efforts of another batsman who scored a good 23 not out, we won by 33 runs. Steven bowled all 4 of his overs and came very close on a few occasions to getting his first wicket of the season but was unlucky.
It was another lovely game of cricket in the sunshine and we end the first half of the season with 5 wins and one loss. Today, man of the match was Lachie for his wicket keeping but generally we were much more dynamic and effective in the field as a whole. Well done, boys.

We were delighted when Loretto contacted us last week to see if we would like another match against them as we both had no match scheduled. With the game at Newfield ending so close, it was sure to be another good match. This time we had lost Nico and Charlie to the 1st XI but they were replaced by the equally effective Todd and Rory.
We were put into bat and our opening pair of Freddie and Edo fell quickly. However, Todd and Otis came in to steady the ship scoring a 44 partnership before Todd was retired on 25. Otis was bowled just after and Tom and Rory scored a quick 42 from 22 balls before Rory was retired on 29 and Tom was run out after being rather casual at running between the wickets. The player at Long On (who took 3 run outs today) threw to the other end and with Tom’s back turned and not sliding in his bat, he was gone. We made a strong total of 139 with one ball left in the 20 overs.

After tea, Loretto started well through the talented Zaara who scored 43 before being caught behind from Ramsay’s delivery by Lachie who is an ever-improving wicket keeper. Two wickets from Alex P gave us the control of the match and despite the best efforts of another batsman who scored a good 23 not out, we won by 33 runs. Steven bowled all 4 of his overs and came very close on a few occasions to getting his first wicket of the season but was unlucky.
It was another lovely game of cricket in the sunshine and we end the first half of the season with 5 wins and one loss. Today, man of the match was Lachie for his wicket keeping but generally we were much more dynamic and effective in the field as a whole. Well done, boys.

There was a right royal celebration taking place in the sunshine down in Windsor, but the weather in Dunbar was also perfect for cricket and it was a pleasure to arrive at Belhaven who had the bunting out and were celebrating Harry and Megan’s nuptials with a Great British picnic lunch. But enough of all that…..!

Unfortunately, the skipper had been selected to play for the East U14 hockey side in the inter districts championships over at Glasgow Green, so someone else was going to have to score his runs……it was slightly surprising then that it was Charlie, earning promotion for the 2nds, who top scored with 32no, coming in at number 7 and batting very sensibly indeed showing great patience and application, playing each ball on its merit. Thanks to his efforts, we got up to 97, being bowled out in the 25 over, which was never going to be enough runs. The innings started badly when Freddie was run out not running his bat in, Marcus joined the Primary Club edging his first ball behind which he did not need to play and one or two others did not have their minds properly focused on toughing it out which was disappointing.

rightColBody

It was the first time this season that our batting has not fired, and this can happen at prep school level; however, the bowling, although reasonably sharp, was by no means unplayable, and we should have scored more.

With the ball, we bowled reasonably well, but a couple of chances went down, a couple of very tight run out decisions did not go our way, and one or two boys bowled far too short, allowing the Belhaven openers to swat the ball to the leg side boundary. Bowling on or around off stop and full is critical to taking wickets and slowing down the scoring rate and everyone allowed the batsmen easy scoring opportunities which was disappointing. Disciplined bowling is so important and I felt we did not show the necessary concentration to put six balls on the spot; we are capable of much better. They chased the runs down in the 19th over, giving them a comfortable and well deserved win.

So lots to celebrate down in Windsor, but less so up here in Dunbar. At least the wedding was good!

Cargilfield 156 – 3
Belhaven 100 all out

A very enjoyable match in glorious sunshine, fit for a Royal Wedding!

Cargilfield opted to bat first and despite losing the wicket of Hugo early on, an impressive stand between Adam and Logan saw both of them retire on 25 not out and set the base from which Cody and Seb could score freely and also make their full complement of runs in quick time. Aggressive running and good calling between the wickets was the order of the day, allowing us to post a challenging total.

rightColBody

I was very impressed with the intensity in the field that followed in the Belhaven innings. Cody kept wicket well, making one stumping and there were some super catches from Murray, Oli and Adam (the latter being the best catch of the day to win the match!) There were a number of strong bowling performances from Oli, Seb and Logan with Murray managing to claim a hat-trick: a feat that most bowlers never enjoy in their whole careers.

Well done to Finn for managing his field confidently and to all the team for the focus that they showed in restricting Belhaven to 100 all out. I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with these boys.

The Cargilfield 2nd XI’s unbeaten run came to an end today as we were defeated heavily by a terrifically well-drilled and talented Belhaven team. They won the toss and chose to bat. On the smaller boundary, they hit many fours and a few sixes with the 20 overs they faced. Their top six batsmen were really strong and even though our bowling wasn’t bad, we just lacked a bit of pace. Our few highlights in the field were a catch from Alex P who also took out one of their strong batsmen with a great delivery and Isabelle’s bowling at the end which was quick and troubled their middle order. Nico captained the side, bowling 4 good overs and Ramsay also bowled well. However, in the end, their big hitting, combined with our rather lacklustre fielding at times, allowed the home side to reach 201.

rightColBody

After match tea, we gave it a good go but silly run outs cost us early on and we couldn’t get going. Belhaven bowled and fielded extremely well. Alex P was the top scorer with 21 and Fiona and Isabelle both hit boundaries but Belhaven’s bowling and catching was too good and we were all out for 80 after 15 overs. Yes we were missing a few players but it was very much appreciated to have Fiona, Isabelle and Sophie who all stepped in today and led by example in the field. It is fair to say our full XI would not have beaten this really good Belhaven team and we thank the home side for hosting us so well. The Cargilfield player of the match was Alex P for not only being our top scorer but for his dynamic and brave fielding – something we could have done with from everyone today!

So, it happened again! For the second week in a row, we batted superbly, scoring over 140 for the loss of only 3 wickets, only to see Fettes chase them down, albeit in a nail biting finish with 4 runs needed off the final over. It was, let’s face it, an excellent game of cricket and although we had more strength in depth which was apparent when the Fettes openers were dismissed their other batsmen found it hard to hit it off the square, credit to the opposition for batting so well and managing to chase down such a mammoth score.

We batted first on a glorious afternoon for cricket with picture postcard blue skies and warm sunshine – a day for which prep school sport was made! After Todd and Harry D’s dismissals, Marcus joined the skipper and together they put on 110 runs batting with great maturity, playing each ball on its merit and running well between the wickets; they accelerated the scoring rate considerably and when Harry departed in the 24th over for a very well made 53, Marcus found himself unable to get the strike in the final over and so finished unbeaten on 49. Another excellent knock and together they showed a really good understanding, supporting each other and only gave one hard chance. It was almost faultless and was lovely to watch. 142 – 3 in 25 overs would take some getting……or so we thought!

We changed the bowling attack round to allow others in to the game and perhaps this allowed the Fettes openers a chance to get runs on the board quickly and create a really good platform from which to build as they had to chase at almost 6 an over throughout the innings.

rightColBody

We had one opportunity to dismiss each of them which we did not take and it took a run out with just 20 odd required to get their premier player out, and suddenly dot balls replaced runs, the balls remaining receded, more wickets fell as the finishing line came tantalisingly closer. Finally, it was just 4 needed off the final over of the match, bowled by Findlay who had bowled beautifully with his accurate and well flighted leg spinners flummoxing the opposition batsmen. Dot. Dot, then a swipe and the ball raced towards the boundary to give Fettes the win. So exciting and a very different game to last week’s at Loretto. I was proud of the way the boys kept going, even though wickets would not fall, and in the end, we almost pulled off a dramatic victory.

Lessons learned? Well, the fielding was better, but there were a couple of misfields on the boundary when a single became four – these are crucial when the game is so tight. Also, we must pitch the ball up when bowling to batsmen who like to pull – early on, we gifted them too many easy runs which meant they got off to a flier.

However, a hugely enjoyable game of cricket and I was delighted to see us bat with such maturity, and also not give up when the odds seemed stacked against us. My nerves were shredded by the end, and both sides can take an awful lot from the game.

Sport teaches us great life lessons! Always.
