U13A Cricket


We started our season positively with a great win in a Cup match against Churchill, with Will Hodges and Edgar Thornton continuing with last season’s superb form, Thornton achieving 3/19 and Hodges 3/11.


Although Churchill made a respectable score of 111, QEH put up a good fight and won with six wickets remaining. In our next match against Wells Cathedral School we put them in to bat. With Thornton and Hamilton both achieving two wickets, we restricted them to 143 off 25 overs. However, the luck was on WCS’ side and we only managed a dear 103.


In our next game against Beechen Cliff we lost; though a few people achieved double figures, we only just passed the century. We were now desperate for a win as we came up against Prior Park. We started well, with Gallagher taking a wicket in the first over. We eventually kept their score down to 112-2. Thornton and Ross held their heads high and won the match with a 113 partnership.


Another match against a very strong King Edward’s School Bath saw QEH make 125. Although we fielded well we couldn’t stop them beating us. However, we had probably our best bowling and fielding game of the season against Backwell, although we were short by a mere 24 runs.


At Taunton, we got the whole team out for 83, due to the prowess of Thornton and Black; and against Bristol Cathedral School we also managed to emerge as the victors. Against Pate’s Grammar School we applied the QEH pressure but failed to quash them; however, against a strong St John’s side we managed to bowl them out for 145.


The last match of the season was against The Downs School where we tried hard to beat them but were unsuccessful, managing only 33 all out.


On behalf of the team I would like to thank Mr Pandya for coaching us; Mr Dixon for umpiring on Saturdays and for Away matches; and finally all family and friends who supported us throughout the season.

I was Captain of the B team for a short time but I was amazed by their talent and spirit. In batting, Will Appleton led the scoring and he holds the record of 33 in one game.


In the bowling, Charlie Peduzzi opened the attack followed by Ibrahim Gill and Jack Wright. I don’t think we had the most successful season but what we didn’t have in victories we made up for in spirit. Every time someone bowled a good ball or hit a good shot, every player cheered on the bowler or batter and if they bowled a bad ball or were out, the rest of the players were sympathetic. So, as Captain I was inspired by the B team talent, both in bowling and batting, and by their unbreakable spirit.
