Last week Clifton took 17 players to St. Pius for their first cricket match of the season.
The weather was perfect for the occasion, the sun was beating down on the wicket making it ideal for the batsmen, while a slight breeze from one end gave the seamers some assistance.
We batted first and while some were clearly getting used to the game, Ashley Hamilton played well to knock 14 of our final total of 54.
Not a huge total to defend and they had a few good batsmen, however we have some great potential in the bowling department with Zain Hassan, Sohail Khan, Harris Ahmed and Amaan Ashram all taking wickets.
St. Pius eventually knocked the score off with two wickets remaining but it was quite an exciting game.
Well done to those who took part!
