OPCC U-13 team v Wirral (Sunday)
A low scoring game played at the Wirral school ground. We batted first and struggled to get runs, eventually finishing on 60 with Michael Hale top scoring with 18.
After an early wicket by Tom McLoughlin it looked like a Wirral win until Michael Hale came on with his spinners and had the excellent figures of 5 overs, 2 maidens, 6 wickets for 7 runs. Wirral 42 all out.
Definitely a man of the match performance from Michael.
The players looked extremely smart in their new club caps. Season to date, won 2, lost 2.

OPCC U-13 team v New Brighton (Sunday)
A very good effort but we fell short by 26 runs.
They batted and we had them 57 for 4 but dropped catches cost us dearly and they finished on 123.
We ended on 97 for 6 with another excellent 35 (ret.) by Sam Black and 18 by Michael Hale, although Sam Robinson was happiest getting his best ever score, 7 not out.
It was another day of improvement for the team well lead once again by Tom McLoughlin.
Thanks to John Capps for umpiring and Paul McLoughlin for scoring.
Well done,

Dave WW
