U13s begin with a win

Hambledon Under 13s recorded an eight-wicket win over Havant at Ridge Meadow to start their season in style.

After winning the toss, the young Dons put the visitors in on a damp wicket.

The Havant youngsters made good progress but lost wickets steadily through the innings.

Tom Toogood was the pick of the Hambledon bowlers with one for four in 4 overs, while he also contributed with two run outs and a catch as the visitors finished on 89 for nine.

The young Dons then made light work of the total, reaching the target in 12 overs.

Jack Thistlethwayte and Seb Byers starred with the bat, both scoring unbeaten 30s before Henry Glanfield finished off the run-chase by scoring a rapid 13.
