Match results and reports

U9s suffer back to back defeats
A tough week saw the U9s lose to both Ham & Petersham and Sunbury.

Against Ham & Petersham, the U9s bowled well but credit goes to the opposition for scoring 324/4.  Our champs gave it their all when chasing but unfortunately fell short by 90 runs – however we were treated to 2 excellent pull shots that hit the boundary and some very dogged defending against some very fast bowling.


And it didn’t get any easier on Sunday against a very strong Sunbury team! Sunbury restricted us to 199/15 with some excellent bowling! In reply, they scored 340/4 to win the game comfortably. A special mention goes to Holly Gaynor and Ben Smith.


U10s match cancelled… again!   
The U10s have yet to play in the South Middlesex league after seeing their second league of the season cancelled due to rain! Hopefully third time lucky this week v Barnes!

U11s beat Walton on Thames
The U11s beat Walton on Thames on Friday evening by 30 runs. After being put into bat, the U11s reached 113/5 of their 20 overs… with Ram Kolanu (31 no) being retired for the second match in a row. An impressive bowling display saw Walton out for 83 runs – Ollie Smith, Will Hardy and Theo Devonald all picked up 2 wickets. The U11s match v Richmond earlier in the week was cancelled due to rain.

Mixed week for the U12s
The U12s were the unfortunate victims of an impressive bowling display by the Bank of England! The recent bad weather made the scoring runs extremely difficult on Kings Field, so it was no surprise to see a low scoring game. Bowling first, the Wick U12s managed to get restrict the Bank of England to 78 all out.  Sadly, the Bank of England’s consistency with the ball saw them take four ducks and only Yuvraj Khaira (15) and Aden Ikram (14) could make double figures. In the end the Wick U12s fell short by 13 runs. MoM was Yuvraj for standing strong throughout 19 very difficult overs and finishing up with two wickets to his name. A special mention also goes to Harris Cathcart who took an amazing one-handed catch in the slip cordon.

However, there was good news for the U12s development team who comprehensively beat Richmond B.  Batting first our U12s reached an intimidating 303/4 off 20 overs – with Joe Spensley top scoring (21 not out). Richmond were never in the chase and finished on 252/6 after their 20 overs, with Max Powell picking up a couple of wickets.


The U12s game v Indian Gymkhana was cancelled earlier in the week due to the bad weather!


Toss of a coin heartbreak for the U13s
The U13s National Cup game v Malden Wanderers was cancelled for a second week running – with the next round looming, a toss of a coin was used to determine the winner! Unfortunately, our U13s ended up losing out!


Earlier in the week the U13s lost to Chiswick & Whitton by 1 wicket. The game started well, with the U13s taking 6 wickets in the first 6 overs! However, Chiswick & Whitton recovered to post 119/9 of their 20 overs. Pick of the bowlers were Ralph Higgins, Callum Hogg and Ollie Hoadley – all taking 2 wickets apiece. HWRCC U13s were never in the chase… finishing 59 all out after 11 overs. The U13s game v Esher was rained off!

U15s march on with another comprehensive win and batting display
An exceptional batting performance v Cheam, saw the U15s register back to back wins in the Mid-Surrey league. Batting first, the U15s posted a formidable 200/2 off 24 overs thanks to Luca Fooks (54 no), Connor Hewitt (49), Chris Cole (45) and Jivraj Singh (34). In reply Cheam managed 167/6 with Jonny Steans taking 2 wickets! The U15s match v Richmond B was rained off earlier in the week.
