On Tuesday we welcomed two touring teams from the GM Academy in Dubai. This is the second occasion we have hosted teams from the UAE and we were expecting very competetive matches against our U13s and U15s. The U13s batted first and amazed an impressive 179-4 with Ben Brennan 38, Dan Wetherill 35, Sam Baines 28, Harry Dawson 19 and Will Wilson 19. GM Academy were bowled out for 94 with Ben Ward taking 5-18.
After an excellent Halal/1815 lunch, the U15s took the field and also batted well setting the Emirates a target of 135-3. James Keal 36, Joe Reynolds 34 and Jack Brennan 25. The Academy team produced a spirited reply of 101-6 with the popular Adin finishing 53 no. A great day enjoyed by players and spectators.
