Sirius miss out on reaching Yorkshire Finals!
A spirited performance from our boys was not enough to gain victory over a very useful Malet side in who all seven players are part of Sutton Cricket Club.
The previous day the Malet side had completely thrashed three other schools. This was not the case against Sirius!
The game was played over two innings and although the boys were forty runs behind after the first innings- it still gave them a fighting chance!
There had been some excellent bowling from Callum Magee, Joe Wood, Chris Brown, Thomas Spurgeon and Callum Fox.
This was matched by the wicket –keeping of Harrison Shearsmith and in the field by Kenan Stephenson.
In the second innings the lack of experience especially in the depth of batting showed and the boys were easily beaten.
However, the Academy certainly has players and a team for the future and with some potential!
The boys did the Academy proud – please praise their efforts!
