Junior Roundup

South Wilts Under 11s look likely to have to settle for runners-up spot in their Wiltshire Youth League despite another win, this time at Goatacre. Ben Howgrave-Graham and Will Langdown both hit fifties as South Wilts posted 154-4 off their 20 overs. Goatacre were all out for 73 in reply with Thomas Andrews top-scoring with 23 not out. Zach Bird picked up 3-11 and Matt Falconer 2-12 in the 81 run victory.

Swindon are top and as the only team to beat South Wilts will win the league unless they slip up in the remaining two fixtures.

South Wilts Under 13s also look likely to have to settle for the
runners-up honours. Despite being unbeaten all season, they were again held to a winning draw, this time by visitors Winsley.
Edward Wade dominated the South Wilts effort hitting a chanceless
century. He hit  17 fours and 1 six in his 118 not out as South Wilts
totaled 215-2.Winsley lost regular wickets to be in big trouble at the halfway mark with 7 down. However, skipper Adam Baxter hit 59 and with his partners shutting up shop they held out for a draw at 148-8. Will Maloney and Nat Burke each picked up two wickets.
South Wilts Under 15s are top of their division but with a week off
before the last three fixtures, an Under 14 side faced East Devon Under 14s at home. Harrison Tyler produced a man of the match performance for the home side as he hit 114 not out in the hosts’ 226-3. Max Allen (35) and George Milton (20) contributed well.
The visitors looked well set at 122-2 in reply but Tyler was not finished and picked up 3-11 to rip the heart out of the batting line-up. Jayden Atkinson was once again in the wickets with 3-27 and with Eddie Stagg taking 2-20, East Devon were bowled out for 177 in the 37th over.
