With the threat of rain ever-present, Sidbury hosted Seaton Under-10s.
Sidbury captain Lucy Tanner won the toss, opted to field first and saw her bowlers make early breakthroughs.
The first Seaton batters closed their spell at the wicket with the score on 32-4. Sid Ridgway and Eli Moss bowled well claiming five wickets between them. Ridgway claimed three wickets in his final over – missing out on a hat-trick by a whisker! Next to bowl were Daisy Grove and Ellie Munro-Higgs who saw another three wickets taken and then Lucy Tanner and Ellie Wood bowled and, between them, took three wickets for just 13 runs.
The final pair of Seaton batters struggled against Cleo Turley and Esme Bagwell, but pulled the Seaton score to a good total of 256.
With the rain clouds gathering overhead the Sidbury reply was launched by Karan Bountra and Ellie Monro Higgs who did not lose a wicket and scored 31 runs in their four overs in the middle.

Eli Moss, Daisy Grove and Sid Ridgway, over the following eight overs, pushed the Sidbury total to 258 with two pairs still to bat and this meant that the only thing Sidbury had to do was not give away wickets.
However, Lucy Tanner, Ellie Wood, Cleo Turley and Esme Bagwell were in impressive form with the bat and chalked up a dozen fours!

Many thanks must be recorded to Waitrose for again supplying food for the club’s Open Day event – and also to the weather which was good enough to hold off with theb rain until five minutes after stumps were drawn – and then the heavens really did open!
