The Windsor CC U10s have had a brilliant campaign this year; it saw them become runners up in the West Surrey U10s Cricket league. To mark this occasion I was asked by the Clubs management to highlight their achievements in a piece. Congratulations to all of the boys involved on a great performance this year.
During their league campaign they played eight games, won five and had three conceded to them. Leaving them undefeated before finals were played. They finished off the league season in style by beating East Moseley by 109 runs, meaning they top the league with 32 points, their nearest competitors on 24 points.
Windsor had a particularly strong batting line up; Mattias Sueren, Josh Jayasingh, Mikey Ford, Ben Moffat, Lewis Naylor being the stand out performers. The wicket keeper was Dan Ormond and the equally potent bowling attack consisted of Lau Ten Cate, Sam Storey, Freddie Fearnley, and Kiaran Lall. Most of them also showed their versatility and ability to contribute to both facets of the game throughout the season.
They then went on to the semi final stages of the regional competition, comprising the three league winners and the best runner up. This saw them up against Weybridge CC U10s and they won convincingly by 78 runs, putting them in the regional final.
The final was to be held on the following Wednesday, but because of school commitments this meant four of Windsor’s key players would be missing and they lost to Pyford CC by 40 runs, their first defeat of the season. A close run thing but circumstances definitely didn’t help.
Martin Tuthill the Colts co-ordinator here at Windsor was so enthused by the boys effort that he has told me “that this squad of players is one of the best he has ever seen at this age group since he has been involved at the club and they are getting better! So roll on next season as U11’s.”
All Windsor CC colts have been invited to participate in the ECB open day being held on Sunday 25th of August. The day, which is also doubling as the annual president’s day, will feature a colts tournament, free BBQ for players and the first team taking on the MCC, all parents and players past and present are invited to come down to Home Park on what should be another day of great cricket at Windsor.
