It was fantastic to see the latest group of players make the transition from junior to senior Cricket when Hook 2nds travelled to play Burton 2nds this weekend.
Lewis Miller, Seth Willington and Owen Phelps all made their debuts in Hook’s 2nd XI.
All 3 boys made impressive starts with all 3 scoring their first senior runs.
Lewis Miller 5 overs 1 for 9 and Seth Willington 5 overs 1 for 21 then both went on to take wickets while Owen Phelps broke the stumps to complete a run out after he took over behind the stumps for the last 20 overs.
A great start for the boys and the first of many games I’m sure they will play for Hook C C for years to come
This week saw our 2nd XI travel to Burton II with what must be 1 of the youngest teams to ever play for Hook with 8 of the 11 players being under 19 and 3 of them just 13 years old. Hook batted first and set Burton a total of 175 for 9 with Jacob Lay 55 and George James 36 topping the scoring.
Burton’s reply was always a bit behind on run-rate with them eventually reaching 142-7.
All 3 of our 13 year olds contributed well during the game with all 3 scoring their first senior runs before 2 of our youngsters took their first senior wickets Lewis Miller 5 overs 1 for 9 Seth Willington 5 overs 1 for 21 both bowled well. Owen Phelps also did his bit as kept wicket well for the first time in senior cricket. Click here to view scorecard

Hi All. The forecast for tomorrow (Thursday) evening is good so hopefully a few of the players can spare an hour or so over the field so that we can get our sponsors advertising boards put up on the boundary fence. If we can start at 6:30 we should be done in just over an hour if there’s a few of us. Thanks in advance. See you tomorrow
