INDOOR LEAGUE - UNDER 11s

The Under 11s played 2 more matches in the Middlesex Colts' Indoor League. A good win against Highgate was followed by a real nailbiter which went to the last ball v North Middlesex. Unfortunately we lost that game by the narrowest of margins - BY ONE RUN !!

Here are the details:

v HIGHGATE

Barnet scored 113-3 in their 12 overs. ADAM ROSSINGTON led the way with 31* before being retired. MICHAEL GOODFELLOW contributed 24.
MICHAEL GOODFELLOW also shone with the ball taking 3 wickets for 4 runs in only 1.2 overs. Wickets (1 each) for SAAGAR PATEL, SCOTT GERARD and JACK FOLEY helped by some spritely wicketkeeping by ADAM ROSSINGTON (3 stumpings and 1 catch) helped Barnet to a 33 run victory, despite a late rally by Highgate's PENFOLD who scored 30 before being retired.

v NORTH MIDDLESEX

Barnet fielded first and bowled steadily (wickets for MICHAEL, THEO STANISCIA-SINGA and JACK), until North Middlesex scored 21 off the 11th over and finished on 104. Still, this target looked well within reach. ROBERT WINSLEY (32*) and ADAM (35*) got the innings off to a flyer. SCOTT (21) built on the good start, but North Middlesex came back and bowled very well in the latter stages. The pressure got to North Middlesex in the last over as 4 wides were bowled. It wasn't enough however and Barnet lost by 1 run.






NOVEMBER 2002

INDOOR LEAGUE - UNDER 11s

The Under 11s played 2 matches on November 16th, beating Hampstead and losing against Mill Hill Village.

v HAMPSTEAD

BARNET WON BY 9 RUNS

Batting first, and in the face of some tight bowling, Barnet (one player short) scored 85 in their 12 overs. SCOTT GERARD (24), ADAM ROSSINGTON (18) and JACK FOLEY (14*) were the top scorers. In reply Hampstead scored quickly but lost wickets regularly and were all out for 76 with more than 3 overs to spare. SCOTT GERARD took 3 wickets. The other wicket takers were ADAM ROSSINGTON, JACK FOLEY AND THEO STANISICIA-SINGA with 1 each. This was a very good win for Barnet with only 7 players.

v MILL HILL VILLAGE

MILL HILL VILLAGE WON BY 29 RUNS

Mill Hill village batted first and scored at a cracking rate, totalling 159-5 in their 12 overs. THEO took 2 wickets, 1 each to JACK and SAAGAR, plus a run out. Barnet did well to muster 130, but fell short and lost by 29 runs, perhaps ruing the absence of their 8th player. ADAM scored 32 (retired), THEO 37 (retired) and SANDY KIDDLE 30 (not out).



UPDATE 11th July 2002

UNDER 10 CUP DREAM ENDS

It was always going to be difficult for the Under 10s to retain the G.Allen Cup once the date for the Quarter & Semi finals was announced and it was apparent that two of our best players would be away playing for the county. Nevertheless the remaining players put up a good show in the first quarter-final match against Sunbury and only lost by 8 runs, a match watched by a large crowd of parents, siblings and friends. Perhaps the heads dropped after that result and we were beaten quite comfortably by Brentham and Bessborough on a very hot day. Nevertheless it was a great experience to play in the later stages of the competition and I'm sure the players will have gained from it. We did very well to reach the last 6.

UPDATE 3rd July 2002

UNDER 17s WIN LEAGUE !!

Report by the Manager, Trevor Chambers

Good news ! The Under 17s beat Edmonton last Thursday and also beat Potters Bar on Monday (1st July). I'm pretty sure that this means that we have won the league which is a big feather in our cap because Potters Bar walked away with nearly everything last year.

Thurs June 27
Barnet 125-5 wickets
Edmonton 110-6 wickets

Barnet won by 15 runs

Sean Bell batted very aggressively and scored a fine 47. He was ably supported by Matt Holland (22) and Daniel Rossington (16 not out). Everybody bowled well but Robert Laney was outstanding and took 3-14 in his 4 overs. The fielding was excellent throughout.


Mon 1st July Potters Bar 113-5 wickets
Barnet 115-5 wickets

Barnet won by 5 wickets

Potters Bar have a very good batting side and we did well to restrict them to 113 in their 20 overs. Sean Bell (1-11) and Nick Jones (2-18) were the pick of the bowlers.

Sean Bell was once again in magnificent form with the bat and hit a rapid 64 which included 8 boundaries and 3 huge sixes. When he was out Nick Jones guided us home to a memorable victory. He finished on 27 not out.


       Sean Bell

The fielding was again outstanding and was instrumental in keeping all of the bowlers fired up and on their toes.


UPDATE 27th June 2002

UNDER 11 REPORT by Steve Jackson

Barnet U11s returned to their winning ways with a comfortable 7 wicket win over Cockfosters. Having won the toss and elected to field, Barnet were soon in command with accurate bowling. Cockfosters struggled to 54-6 of 20 overs. Matthew Jackson was Barnet's best bowler with 3-8.

Barnet then achieved their target despite an early wobble leaving them 24-3 before Jack Reynolds and Matthew Jackson steadied the ship achieving their target in 12 overs without further loss. Jack went on to make 23 n.o.

BARNET'S GOOD RUN COMES TO AN END

Having been put into bat Barnet found scoring hard going against a strong Potters Bar attack achieving 71-8 off 20 overs. Michael Goodfellow top scored with 14.

This was never going to be enough with Potters Bar achieving their target within 13 overs with the loss of 2 wickets.


UPDATE 23rd June 2002

ANOTHER CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH POTTERS BAR

The UNDER 10s played another close fought, highly-charged game with Potters Bar. We bowled very well indeed, Scott Gerard the most economical with only 5 runs coming off his 3 overs. Wicket takers were Michael Goddfellow (2-9), Previ (3-26) and Bavik (2-13). Potters Bar scored 76 all out.

Barnet were soon 6 for 2 in reply, but Michael Goodfelow (23) and Adam Rossington (19) put Barnet back on course.

              
Michael Goodfellow    Adam Rossington

At 53-3 after 13 overs victory looked likely, but the later batting fell away and in desperation we suffered 3 run outs. Still we came very close and lost by just 2 runs !


UPDATE 17th June 2002

UNDER 10s MOVE SOLIDLY INTO QUARTER-FINALS

The Under 10s, put in a good solid performance to win away at North London to progress to the quarter-finals of the George Allen Trophy, the competition that Barnet won in 2001. Putting the opposition into bat, we bowled economically and fielded tightly to restrict N.London to 35 for 4 (a nett score of 15) in their 12 overs. The wicket-takers were Theo Staniscia-Singa, Scott Gerard and Adam Rossington. Barnet replied with 45 for 1 (nett score of 40) to win by 25 runs. Top scorers were Michael Goodfellow (13 not out) and Adam Rossington (12 not out).  Isaac Moore made a promising debut. We await the quarter-final draw.


UPDATE 16th June 2002

UNDER 10s UNBEATEN RUN COMES TO AN END

An under-strength Barnet side lost for the first time this season at Edmonton. We fielded first, and Scott Gerard and Sandy Kiddle took early wickets to have Edmonton 2 for 2. The subsequent bowlers didn't bowl to their usual standard, giving away too many extras, so that when Gerard (4 for 3) and Kiddle (2 for 15) returned, Edmonton had scored the bulk of their 99 runs off 20 overs. In reply, we seemed to be on course with 61 on the board off 10 overs, led by Robert Winsley (21 not out), with support from Scott Gerard (10 not out). From that point on Edmonton bowled a much better line and our batsmen struggled to get on top of the bowling and we finished 12 runs short of Edmonton's total.

UNDER 11s CONTINUE WINNING STREAK

The Under 11s beat Southgate Compton cimfortably for the second time this season. S'. Compton were all out for 46 with Scott Gerard taking 3 wickets for 3 runs. William Mumford and Adam Rossington put together a partnership for the bulk of the runs and Barnet won by 8 wickets.


UPDATE 23rd MAY 2002

UNDER 17s CONVINCING WIN

Trevor Cambers writes

The Under 17s chalked up another good win. We scored 113 against a good Edmonton side thanks mainly to an excellent 58 not out by Robert Laney who opened the batting. We then bowled very tidily and restricted the opposition to 83 all out with Chris Rossington getting 3 wickets. We therefore won by 40 runs.


UNDER 10s HAMMER 8-MAN SOUTHGATE

Southgate Under 10s were forced to 'borrow' 3 fielders from Barnet's side as only 8 of their own team turned up for the game at Southgate. Barnet rattled up an impressive 138-3 in their 20 overs. Adam Rossington led the way with a pugnacious 53 not out. He brought up his 50 with a six. Other main contributors were Scott Gerard (10 n.o), Theo Staniscia-Singa (8 n.o) and Michael Goodfellow (8).
Southgate opener Harif scored 13, but no-one else could get to grips with the accurate Barnet bowling. Matthew Saunders took 2 wickets in two balls, as well as a good catch. Sandy Kiddle also took 2 wickets Other wicket takers with 1 wicket each were Michael Goodfellow, Theo Staniscia-Singa , and Scott Gerard. It all added up to an enormous 93 run margin of victory. The Under 10s remain unbeaten.


UPDATE 22nd MAY 2002

UNDER 11 STROLL HOME TO WIN AT COCKFOSTERS

Barnet Under 11s took an early grip of this match thanks to Jack Reynolds' 2 wickets from the first 2 balls of the Cockfosters innings. 0 for 2 soon became 3 for 3, but the home team did make a partial recovery to score 54 in their innings. Barnet scored the runs without too many alarms. Adam Rossington holding the innings together and ensuring a comfortable victory.


UPDATE 20th MAY 2002

UNDER 10s IN EXCITING TIE WITH POTTERS BAR

The Under 10s played a tough and exciting game against a strong Potters Bar side who just scrambled enough runs to level the scores with all overs bowled. Barnet batted first and made 81-3. The bulk of the runs coming from a partnership of 60-plus from Michael Goodfellow (43 n.o.) and Adam Rossington (19 n.o.). Michael Goodfellow's fine innings included 8 boundaries.

Potters Bar scored the same number of runs for the loss of 7 wickets; 2 to Scott Gerard, 1 to Jack Foley and 4 run outs.


UNDER 11s MAKE IT 2 OUT OF 2

Match report by Steve Jackson

Barnet Under 11s comfortably won their second league match when they defeated Botany Bay by 7 wickets.

Botany Bay batted first and struggled to come to terms with accurate Barnet bowling. They were bowled out for 46 in 16 overs. Scott Gerard, Adam Rossington, Emily Jones and Ben Lambert each taking 2 wickets with Jack Reynolds and Luke Tullo 1 each.

Barnet then paced themselves nicely achieving their target with 4 overs to spare.Matthew Jackson and Adam Rossington were the pick of the batsmen both scoring an undefeated 9.


UPDATE 12th MAY 2002

UNDER 10s MARCH ON

An understrength Barnet Under 10s side managed to beat Edmonton by 7 wickets at Underhill on Sunday. Edmonton scored 53-7. Pick of our bowlers was definitely Scott Gerard who took 4 wickets for 2 runs in 3 overs. We scored the runs with more than 2 overs to spare for the loss of 3 wickets. Runs were hard to come by off the bat, but Robert Winsley looked the pick of the batsmen.


UPDATE 10th MAY 2002

UNDER 15s CUP WOE !

Barnet Under 15s lost their cup match with Winchmore Hill by 44 runs. Winchmore Hill 104-4, Barnet 60-6.


UPDATE 9th MAY 2002

UNDER 10s CUP SUCCESS !

TheUnder 10s, the Cup holders, set about their defence of the Gubby Allen Trophy by beating Winchmore Hill by 28 runs in an eight over-a-side game at Barnet. Winchmore Hill batted first. Scott Gerard gave us a great start with 2 wickets in the opening over. Michael Goodfellow bowled impressively and Barnet continued to bowl well, and helped by some very efficient fielding, restricted Winchmore Hill to 207 (incl. the initial 200).


Scott Gerard

The Barnet Batsmen were wisely circumspect, in the main, and just kept ahead of their opponents score until the last pairing of Adam Rossington (22 not out) and Michael Goodfellow plundered valuable runs to see Barnet home comfortably by 28 runs.


The Under 15s lost to Edmonton: Barnet 86-6, Edmonton 87-4


POTTERS BAR "CRY OFF" !

The Under 15s were given the points when Potters Bar pulled out of their fixture with Barnet. Similarily, the Under 17s were awarded the points when Southgate Adelaide failed to produce a side to play the fixture. Although the points are welcome, it is a shame when these fixtures aren't fulfilled.

UPDATE 8th MAY 2002

GOOD START FOR BARNET U 11s

(Match Report : Steve Jackson)

Barnet under 11s won their opening League game in convincing style by 64 runs at Southgate Compton. After losing the toss Barnet posted 96-8 on a difficult batting wicket. Michael Goodfellow top scored with 26. He was well supported by captain Jack Reynolds who made 11 and Luke Tullo 8.


Michael Goodfellow                           Jack Reynolds

Barnet's bowlers then proved too strong for Southgate Compton, dismissing them for 32. Three bowlers took two wickets each:-Jack Reynolds, Luke Tullo, Adam Rossington and one each for Michael Goodfellow, Matthew Jackson and Emily Jones.


Action v Southgate Compton

UPDATE 3RD MAY 2002

REPORT FROM THE COLTS' MANAGER - TREVOR CHAMBERS

(For Under 10s/11s see below)

The Under 13s lost to North London "B" by 15 runs. North London "B" scored 71-2 whilst we only managed 56-3 despite a good innings from Oliver Ridout who scored 20 and Neeral Dodhia who scored 14 not out.
The Under 13s beat Winchmore Hill convincingly. We bowled the opposition out for only 57 with Alex Marzell taking 4 wickets for only 12 runs in his 4 overs. Neel Khagram also bowled well and took 2-16. We then knocked off the runs for the loss of only 4 wickets to win by 6 wickets. Dom Kandasamy batted well and was the mainstay of our innings with a fine 32.



The Under 15s beat Southgate Compton easily. We scored 157 in 20 overs and bowled the opposition out for 73. The match against Winchmore Hill in the cup was postponed because of rain. We will have to play the game at a later date because it is a cup match.

The Under 17s beat last year's champions and County Cup Winners, Potters Bar, very convincingly by 35 runs. We scored an excellent 108-2 wickets in our 20 overs with Sean Bell scoring 65 not out and Josh Knappett scoring 34. We then bowled exceptionally well and restricted a strong Potters Bar side with some tight and accurate bowling. Robert Laney took 2-15. Well done to all concerned because this was a real team effort with some very keen fielding. Our next league match against Cockfosters was cancelled because of heavy rain.


APRIL 2002

Dry weather enabled the season to get underway as planned. The Under 10s got off to a good start with a win over Southgate Adelaide. Adam Rossington made 44 not out.
Adam was in the runs again for the Under 11s and formed a good partnership with Michael Goodfellow against Finchley in the Cup. Good bowling restricted Barnet to 90 from their 20 overs and Finchley won the game despite a good effort from Barnet in the field. Under 11 s' debutant, Scott Gerard bowled with promise

There were smiles however on the faces of the Barnet coaches, buoyed by the news that the Under 17s had beaten local rivals Potters Bar !(SEE ABOVE)
