Horndon on the Hill CC are U16 Indoor Champions at Grays School

Horndon on the Hill CC - U16 Indoor Champions at Grays School 2010-2011Horndon on the Hill became Thurrock’s under 16 indoor cricket champions at Grays School on Thursday evening (31st March 2011) as they completed their league programme with a 100% record.  Stanford le Hope were the champions’ victims in the final week of competition, but it was a close-run affair.  It began to look good for Horndon when Stanford were dismissed for just 44, but Hope hit straight back with the early dismissal of Tom Stone.  Tom had scored 116 in his previous three innings and had only been dismissed on one occasion. Clearly this was a major setback for the aspiring champions but a level head from lower-order batsman Sam Childers was enough to get Horndon over the finishing line, as he finished with 13 runs to his name. Earlier, Jonathan Edwards was Stanford’s top scorer with 22. Horndon’s Owen Jones and Tyler Moore each picked up two wickets, at a cost of just six and nine runs respectively.  Horndon finished on 45 for the loss of three wickets.
