The U11s played their first ever game of hardball on Saturday against a strong Hamworthy team. They bowled really well with very few wides and no balls keeping the batters under pressure. A late flurry of runs saw Hamworthy reach 145. Klayton took the first wicket bowling his 3 overs for just 9 runs. Liam 2 overs for 11 and Nala 2 overs for 19. Finley impressed behind the stumps getting better and better as the game progressed.
Swanage got off to a steady start with Danny top scoring on 7 and Klayton. Before Oliver and Liam played like a couple of seasoned professionals never looking like they were going to get out. They both retired so that Josh and the 2 Fins could all have a bat.
Swanage ended on 78 a creditable performance for their first hardball match.
