30 over match: Capel 162-8 defeated Town Malling 76 all out.
In very chilly and blustery conditions Capel’s development XI with 5 juniors made an excellent start to the season with a comprehensive victory over a similar team from Town Malling by 86 runs. Josh van Heerden top scored with 34 not out (having earlier retired not out) while in a great all round bowling performance Adam Stronell 3-11, Will Jones 3-14, and Jacob Curtis 2-11 off 6 overs particularly shone. The fielding was
tight with few easy runs for the opposition and only one bye conceded (those pre- season drills paid off) while some good catches were taken, one by Matt Barwick over his head while nearly falling flat on his back.
This was a determined and committed performance showing the club’s future is promising in the hands of its juniors. It was a fitting start to our 10th anniversary season.
