Resounding Result for U15’s in Willis Elliott Memorial Cup Final

29th Aug 2018


All the players and parents seemed reluctant and apprehensive on this early, chilly Sunday morning. This was the third attempt to play the U15’s Willis Elliott Memorial Cup Final, after two previous cancellations due to the rain and today’s weather forecast was 100% rain by mid to late morning!


SN won the toss and without hesitation, put Burnopfield into bat, hoping for a quick result.


Harry Clarke and Bobby Green opened with hostile bowling and in the third over reaped their rewards, with a smart catch by Guy Johnson (Cpt) at gully, to dismiss Burnopfield’s captain and talisman, Mitchell Killeen. SN’s bowling and fielding continued with ruthless efficiency and Burnopfield’s wickets fell at regular intervals and were given few opportunities to score.


Burnopfield were all out after 19.5 overs, held to a mere 39 runs!
