The Captain's match report
On Monday the Longsands six a side cricket team played against 2 school - Ashton and St Peters.
We won 47-27 against Ashton, with me scoring 20 runs before having to retire, Rio scoring 11 and Simon scoring 10 runs.
The next match was against St Peters. 3 of our batsmen were out very quickly so it was up to Rio and Sam to score some runs for us. They fought very hard against some very accurate bowling and altogether we score 26 runs from our 5 overs.
When we fielded, Rio took 2 wickets in the first over and 1 in the last over. At the end it was very close and tense and eventually we drew, both sides scored 26 runs and lost 3 wickets.
