Leehurst Swan won the toss and put Moyles Court in to bat first. LHS bowled well in the early overs and our opening batsmen struggled to score runs. Unfortunately, Hayden was run out in the third over and then Edward – one of our strong batsmen was bowled out for a duck in the fourth over. All the following batsmen struggled to score with only Josh able to offer any resistance to the LHS bowling. At the end of our 16 overs, we were 38 for 8.
LHS opening batsmen got a solid start and were able to score 18 runs before we got our first wicket. We were able to take a further 3 wickets before LHS were able to knock up the required 39 runs in 10.4 overs for the loss of only 4 wickets.
We were well beaten in this game by a team that simply batted and bowled better than we did. We will certainly be working on all areas of our game before our next game.
As The Park School arrived early, we had plenty of time, so played to get the whole team.
Moyles Court batted first and scored 18 rounders in 25 minutess and The Park only got 4 of our team out. Our aim then was to work hard to get players out to keep the score low. We achieved this by getting their whole team out, within the time, for their score of only 7.5 rounders.
We had time left to have a short 2nd innings of 18 balls each team. This brought the final score to 23.5 to 12 to Moyles Court.
Both sides used this game as a coaching match, to give advice during play so hopefully our team learnt from the experience. However, they still did well to win by such a large score and to succeed in getting so many players out.
Players of the Match: Tatum – for backing up players, stopping the ball and making quick decisions and strong batting and Chloe for effort in backing up.
Final Score: Park School – 12 rounders Moyles Court – 23.5 rounders
In a well contested game Moyles Court batted first and with some excellent batting from most members of the team we were able to score 7 rounders. Our running between the bases was excellent and our batsmen were able to find gaps in the Buckholme field. When Buckholme batted, our fielders were able to constantly put the batsmen under pressure and they struggled to score rounders. Moyles Court were able to restrict the opposition to scoring just 5 rounders and ended up winning by 2 rounders.
Players-of-the-Match: Harrison and Maia
Buckholme Towers won the toss and asked Moyles Court to bat first. With a strong batting line-up we were able to score 15 rounders in our first innings. With most players contributing towards the score and with some excellent running between the posts, this was a formidable score to beat.
When Buckholme Towers came in to bat Moyles Court dominated the pitch with some really good fielding, excellent catching and accurate throwing to bases. We were able to get the required 3 players of Buckholme out for just 5 rounders.
The second game went the same way, with a victory of 7 rounders to 5 in favour of Moyles Court and the last game resulted in a draw of 2-2. Credit should go to all members of the team who all batted and fielded really well.
Players-of-the-Match: Josh, Henry and Edward
Moyles Court won the toss and put BCS into bat first. For our first match of the season and only limited practice sessions, all our main bowlers bowled with good line and length and we gave away minimal extras. We also fielded well and took 2 really good catches from Callum and Harry. With 3 wickets for Callum, 3 for Edward, 2 for Harry and 1 for Josh we were able to restrict BCS to 38 for 9 in 14 overs.
Although our batting line-up struggled to score runs; with several batsman falling to low scores, our captain Edward was able to bat through for 12 runs not out and take us to the required score of 39 to win by 3 wickets. This was a low scoring game but Moyles Court should be pleased with this win as it showed promise for the season ahead.

The second match for Moyles Court was against an older team. Our bowling was not quite so strong but better than the oppositions! Again we did well to get players out – 7 in all. Unfortunately our batting was not quite so good, leaving the score as 9-5 to BCS. Even so, such a pleasing first match.
