YOUTH CRICKET: Lowe gets Oxon on the up

First published in Sport

OXFORDSHIRE Under 12s cruised to a nine-wicket victory over Wiltshire at Cokethorpe School.

The visitors’ scoring rate was severely restricted by a tight bowling and fielding performance from Oxon.

Alex Lowe took 4-10 in eight overs as Wiltshire reached 83-8 in 40 overs.

Oxon found the going far easier in reply, captain Tom Price hitting 40 not out and Harrison Ward 26 as they eased home with 12 overs to spare.

  • REIGNING champions Bicester & North Oxford lost by 13 runs the Under 13 Ron Maudsley Knockout Trophy at Challow & Childrey.

The hosts scored 95-5, Harry Whitehead hitting 26, before restricting the visitors to 83-6.

The most exciting game was at Banbury, where the scores finished level, but visitors Warborough & Shillingford triumphed on fewer wickets.

Banbury’s Tyrone Eyles took a hat-trick, while Warborough’s Tom Winch bagged four wickets.

In the Under 11 Competition, there was also a hat-trick for Abingdon Vale’s Luke Charlesworth, who finished with 5-2 to steer his side to a 104-run victory over Buscot Park.
