1st X1 Cricket

Our 1st XI Cricket team celebrated their first victory for the season with a nail biting victory over Aldro. Feltonfleet lost the toss and were sent in to bat first. After a good start and partnership between Daniel O and Freddie D, a couple of quick wickets slowed the run rate down a bit.  Luckily Daniel and Jack T had their eyes in, pushing our total to a respectable 126 for 9 after 25 overs. Daniel was finally caught out after 53 magnificent runs.

Aldro's attack was very quickly stopped by the brilliant bowling of Nathan F, who took four wickets in his first three overs, supported by Mike van R who added another three runs to our wicket tally. The bowlers and fielders, especially Henry M,  kept the runs down during the last few overs to allow Feltonfleet to win the match by only two runs.

Congratulations to the whole team for an exceptional performance!
