    Under 9s : V MORTIMER WEST END
    17 May 2015

    The U9s recorded a win against Mortimer West End at home in their first game of the season.

    Mortimer West End batted first and scored a respectable 254 for 2 off their 15 overs. Team captain Dylan and Tim gave a perfect start for West Ilsley by opening the bowling with one maiden over each. Freddie got our first wicket in the 7th over, and Dylan captured the other in the final over. Everyone bowled very accurately, with no-one conceding more than 8 runs in their over. The fielding was very good, too, with the opposition being restricted to singles (and only scoring one four).

    In response, some accurate bowling from Mortimer West End saw West Ilsley's run chase restricted initially, although William scored a cracking 4 in the third over. Our run rate increased from the 9th over onwards: Freddie and George Wilson scored 25 runs in their partnership, and Tim and Adam contributed 32 runs in theirs (with Tim scoring four 4s, and Adam a 5!). This left Dylan and John to come in for the final partnership and ensure they lost no wickets - they batted very sensibly and Dylan celebrated the win by scoring a 4 off the last ball, for a final total of 271 for 5.

    So well done, boys, for an excellent team effort.

     
    Under 11s : MATCH REPORT V HENLEY LEOPARDS
    17 May 2015

    Oh so close…

    Our second match in the League saw the West Ilsley Under 11’s narrowly defeated by Henley Leopards at their ground in Harpsden.

    Henley won the toss and elected to field.  West Ilsley lost a few early wickets before George Gardiner came in to bat, scoring 25 runs and was retired.  In total we scored 89 for 7.

    There were some excellent bowling performances this week supported by enthusiastic wicket keeping by Matthew Fowler.  Maiden overs were bowled by Ethan Hill and George Gardiner  - George also bowled a wicket maiden.  Ethan bowled 3 overs, taking one wicket for only 4 runs.  He also took an excellent catch. 

    Some of our younger Year 5’s also bowled well, including Charlie Cramp, Josh Willson and Mark Taylor. Charlie bowled 3 overs taking 1 wicket for 5 runs - excellent.

    Our tight bowling partly contributed to the match being tied at 89 runs at the start of the last over!!!  Unfortunately, their batsman hit the second ball in the over to the boundary and we lost by 4 runs! An extremely exciting and tense match for both the boys and parents!

    We currently sit 3rd in the League table.

    Under 15 girls : WIN AGAINST HENLEY
    14 May 2015

    It was a great start to the season for the Under 15 Girls with a fantastic win against Henley on Wednesday evening.

    West Ilsley won the toss and chose to bat first. Opening batsman Juliet Banks and Lottie Aird provided us with a solid start, scoring a combined total of 41 runs. Hannah Blatchley, Suzie Beaumont, Katie Scriven and Nooree Patel continued to put on a very strong batting performance resulting in an impressive 110 runs for 4 wickets.

    Opening bowler Hannah Blatchley led the team, taking 2 wickets, ably supported by Lottie Aird, Suzie Beaumont and Katie Scriven, also all taking wickets. Juliet Banks was a great support to the team as wicket keeper, keeping the field energetic and the batsmen under pressure. West Ilsley presented a strong field, with Millie Knight & Bea Nutbrown putting into practice the skills they have learnt during training. All the girls showed great team work and communication and their team spirit and focus helped them to bowl out Henley for 51 runs in 8 overs, securing a solid win.

    A huge well done to the girls on such a fantastic game, demonstrating real team spirit and energy!

    Under 11s : WIN AGAINST KIDMORE END
    14 May 2015

    It was a great start to the season for the Under 11's with a win against Kidmore End.

    West Ilsley won the toss and captain Matthew Fowler elected to bat. We put on a strong batting performance scoring 108 runs for only three wickets. George Gardiner retired on 25 not out and there were great scores from Noah Teague (21 not out), Matthew Fowler (19 not out) and Christopher Martin (16 runs).

    The result was close in the end with the home team scoring 100 runs for 8 wickets. Some of the highlights of West Ilsley's bowling were a maiden over from Ollie Gregory and a wicket maiden from Christopher Martin. Ben Dray took 3 wickets and Christopher Martin also took 2 wickets for 5 runs (both bowled 3 overs).

    Well done to the boys who showed great team spirit throughout.

     
    Under 13 girls : FINCHAMPSTEAD, LADY TAVENERS ROUND 2
    14 May 2015

    A low scoring T20 home game that resulted in the tightest of finishes.

    West Ilsey batted first, with only Juliet Banks (c) managing to give their bowlers any concern, eventually being bowled for 19 and WICC ending all out for 66 after 15 overs.

    With a small total to defend, the WICC bowlers' opening salvo was a wicket in the first over and they proceeded to steadily dismiss the opposition batsmen with all bowlers contributing. With the opposition only needing 5 runs to win, Juliet removed her WK gloves and took the ball. In the last ball of her over she bowled Finchampstead’s last batsman and West Ilsley won by 3 runs!

    Well done girls – through to round 3!
