Rainhill Under 11s Musketeers Face Defeat Against Bootle CC Under 11s


On a sunny Sunday afternoon the Under 11s Musketeers faced off against Bootle CC’s Under 11s B in a pairs cricket encounter.  Winning the toss and opting to field first, Rainhill aimed to restrict Bootle’s batting lineup. However, Bootle’s batters held their ground, despite some disciplined bowling efforts from Rainhill, including Nathan Burton and Evan Davies each taking crucial wickets, Bootle managed to reach a competitive total of 69 for 4 in their allotted 15 overs, equating to a net score of 253.

In response, Rainhill’s batting struggled to build partnerships against Bootle’s disciplined bowling attack. Nathan Williams showed resilience with 18 runs, but Rainhill faltered with several players losing wickets due to accurate bowling from Bootle.  The Musketeers reached a net score of just 206 from their 15 overs.

Bootle’s consistent bowling and fielding efforts proved decisive, securing them a 3-point victory.  This match served as a learning experience for Rainhill’s young team.
