Cricket: Hall beat Harris in finals
Date posted: 30-07-2012
The Gable Hall Junior cricket team were very successful in their quest to retain the Thurrock District cup last Tuesday as they beat Harris Academy convincingly.
Gable Hall bowled first, Nathaniel Waller and Jack Plom bowled well at the start before the introduction of William Slaughter and Bobby Samwell. William collected 5 Harris wickets and Bobby 3 as Harris totalled a meager 56 runs.
William Slaughter and Luke Filsell opened the batting for Gable Hall, and knocked off the runs in double quick time (8 overs) without losing a wicket. The team looked like a very polished unit and deserved to be crowned district champions.
Team: Owen Moore, William Slaughter, Jamie Hynd, Jack Plom, Alfie Thompson, William Pearn, Bobby Samwell, George Howard, Riley Holt, Luke Filsell, Bethany Harford and Nathaniel Waller.
