A game of two halves
By Owen Elsom
Bowling good, batting bad.
Goresbrook u12's fielded and bowled well against their Brentwood counterparts at the Annexe on Sunday and indeed, managed to bowl out the visitors for 118. Good field placing and enthusiastic ground work kept the visiting batsmen on their toes. Vajran Sri bowled 2 victims, Grace Wood took two caught and bowled's on her 13th Birthday and Ben Atkins bowled one and had the other caught behind by John Nicholls for his brace.
However the batting was a huge disappointment as the batters failed to play themselves and rather threw their wickets away against a very good bowling attack. Liam Elsom top scored with 11 but Brook's innings petered out to a meagre 72 all out.
