HWRCC Colts’ Round Up… WEEK 4

Hello and welcome to week 4 at the WICK!

Before we get started, a bit of housekeeping… we have a small number of players that have yet to pay their
membership fees – we appreciate that this is more than likely to be an oversight, but we would like all outstanding fees to be settled by 26 May 2019.

We’d also like to remind you that anyone representing the club in matches (all age groups)
must wear whites, including a club shirt and cap (if you wear one). Club shirts can be brought online by visiting our kit supplier, Serious Sport.

Finally, this Sunday saw the start our All Stars programme and with over 40 children registered it was a busy morning! Parking will continue to be difficult, so we do strongly recommend that you walk if you live locally. If not, parking can be found on nearby streets (e.g. Church Grove / Sandy Lane). 

Match results and reports

U9s narrowly lose out to Indian Gymkhana in front of bumper crowd

The U9s made their debut on the main square last Sunday and with a bumper crowd cheering them on they fell just short of the finishing line – losing by 9 runs to Indian Gymkhana. A special mention goes to Ranveer Dangi who on debut bowled superbly and top scored with 20 not out! And a big shout to Holly Gaylor, Parina Singh and Chloe Kingston who all played magnificently.

U10s suffer back to back defeats  

The Wick U10s bowled and fielded well to dismiss Barnes for 117 in their first-ever South Middlesex game. The damage was done by MoM Sam Flinn and Ted Shippin who both took 2 wickets each and 3 excellent run-outs! The reply was solid but the Wick U10s finished an agonising 14 runs behind the target for the loss of only 4 wickets… Sam top scored with a scintillating 25 not out!

The U10s lost another close contest later in the week– this time to East Molesey in the West Surrey League. East Molesey batting first scored 291/5 with
Tom Gaylor taking 3 wickets. The Wick U10s fell 19 runs short, finishing on 272/8 with Cormack Gray Fahy top scoring.

U11s blown away by Wycombe House

The U11s lost to an impressive Wycombe House team. Batting first Wycombe House posted 95 all out – Will Hardy was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets. The Wick U11s managed 65 all out in 15.2 overs… a disappointing defeat after bowling and fielding so well.

U12s lose to Sunbury in the last over  

The Wick U12s lost a closely fought match against Sunbury! After winning the toss and electing to bat, the U12s posted an impressive 138/6 off their 20 overs, with Ryder Emmerson (30) and Olly Spray (47) doing the damage. However, this proved not to be enough, with Sunbury chasing down the total in 19.2 overs for the loss of 5 wickets. A tough defeat to take on a bitterly cold evening!

U13s lose out to Hampton Hill and Malden Wanderers  

Defeats to Hampton Hill (by 8 wickets) and Malden Wanderers (by 62 runs) gave the Wick U13s a tough week. In the local derby against Hampton Hill, the U13s posted a slightly below par 98/6 which included a 26 from Jivraj Singh. This was never going to be enough and Hampton Hill knocked off the runs with 5 overs to go.

Sunday’s game in the Mid-Surrey league saw the Wick U13s lose to an impressive Malden Wanderers team. Malden set the team a formidable 168/4 to win. Despite the best efforts of
Leo Morjaria to Wick U13s could only manage 106/9.


The Wick U15s posted a daunting 139/5 v Hampton Hill in the South Middlesex league with Olly Coles hitting a delightful 52! Hampton Hill should never have been in the chase but a few lapses in concentration allowed them to reach 111/7. Tom Dunmore and Jivraj Singh both bagged 2 wickets each… this win was followed up with a comprehensive victory over Barnes in the Mid-Surrey league on Sunday!

An impressive bowling display saw Barnes restricted to 105/9 off 24 overs! Christopher Cole was the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets! The chase was a bit of a non-event with the target being reached within 11 overs – Luca Fooks was the star of the show with 50 not out.  

The U15s are sitting pretty at the top of the Mid-Surrey and South Middlesex leagues. So, it comes as no surprise to see Mark Steans named Wick Manager of the month!

Hello and welcome back to the Wick for what promises to be another great season – here’s a quick summary of how week 1 went and what’s planned for the coming week(s)…

Match results and reports

U10s convincingly beat Twickenham in friendly!   
Despite the conditions – freezing cold wind and a smattering of rain, the U10s ran out comfortable winners in this early season friendly! An enjoyable game with some good contributions from everyone. Looking forward to the league games now!

U11s knocked out of the Middlesex CUP in close encounter
The U11s played Hampton Hill in a cup game that went down to the penultimate over, with our rivals from the other side of Bushy Park ultimately winning by 5 wickets. The Wick recovered from 0-1 to post a total of 110-2. Well done Jack Dowling and Charlie McLauchlan who both retired when they reached 30. On the bowling side, Will Hardy took two wickets in two balls but was denied a hat-trick by some stubborn blocking. And there was also some great fielding— particularly from Neel Mohindra who bravely put his body on the line to save a certain boundary. Report provided by Jack Dowling.

U12s reach the next round of the CUP
The U12s beat Hampton Hill by 18 runs to progress to the next round of the Middlesex cup. The Wick won the toss and opted to bat, scoring136-5 off their 20 overs – the innings was held together by Ralph Higgins (41) and Ryder Emmerson (28). The Wick’s U12s restricted Hampton Hill to 118-6 – a special mention goes to Marley Crosby for taking his first competitive wicket.

The U12s Development team went down on in a friendly match Sunday morning to an impressive Indian Gymkhana team. A special mention goes to Hamzah Malik who picked up 3 wickets!

Barnes beat HWRCC U13s by 8 wickets
Despite an impressive unbeaten 41 by Jivraj Singh, the U13s couldn’t overcome a strong Barnes team in their first Mid-Surrey match.

U15s enjoyed a big win in Mid-Surrey opener!  
After winning the toss and electing to bat the U15s reached 185-8 off their 24 overs, with Connor Hewitt scoring an unbeaten 50 and Asvethram Vijayakumar scoring 39. Long Ditton were never in contention and reached 68-9, with Sam Palmer returning excellent figures of 4-1-15-3.
