Junior Cricket: Blue too strong for Gold as Tamworth teams play each other

It was a bluewash in junior representative cricket when Tamworth’s sides went head to head in the under 12s and 14s on Sunday.

Tamworth Blue beat Tamworth Gold in both fixtures after Blue had also beaten Gold a week ago in the 16s.

Buoyed by a masterful 70 from Jack Hamilton, Blue cruised to a seven-wicket win in the under 14s.

Ben Chick (35) and Charlie Henderson (30) batted soundly for Gold while Matthew Holmes (4-19) was at his destructive best for Blue.

Gold was bowled out for 110. Hamilton then did the majority of the work for Blue as he scored 62.5 per cent of his side’s runs.

Zac Craig (2-30) toiled away with the ball but Blue was able to score the winning runs in 27.3 overs.

The under 12s game went down in similar fashion with Blue securing a cruisy win.

Harry Lewington (4-12) picked apart Gold’s batting lineup who were all out for 110.

Nicholas Bukovac (4) was removed early in the run chase to bring Lewington and Chris Fox together.

That would be all the batsmen Blue would need as Lewington top-scored with 45 while Fox was just a run behind with 44.
