Epsom batted first and scored a creditable 252. Excellent batting from everyone produced this competitive target.
A point of improvement is perhaps for the players to learn to leave wide balls and score runs without hitting the ball!
Another aspect is to call early for runs. There were a few run outs that could have been avoided.
Epsom started their bowling very well restricting their top order batting to minimal runs.
With only a few overs left it looked like Whiteley Village might win but 1 fantastic caught and bowled by Robert M in the penultimate over ensured Epsom had momentum. The final over and the game was in the balance. It was bowled by Matthew H and with Charlie R catching their man out that final act meant a well deserved victory by 12 runs.
Thank you to Adrian H for umpiring and Warren R for his administration of the game.
Epsom CC - Under 11 Softball won the toss and decided to bowl.
