We headed to Merchiston for the 3rd and final match in our ‘Tri-Series’ and thank you to them for giving us the extra fixtures.  Once again, the squad was refreshed and some of those 3rd XI players who have stood out in training, were given the chance to show what they could do.  Having lost the toss, we went into bat and William and Leo opened.  Leo went after just 1 run but in came Ramsay to play very well alongside William.  William made some quick singles whilst Ramsay at the other end, played the big powerful shots.  Their partnership of 48 ended when Ramsay hit his own wicket and William went just after.  Lachie scored 1 and in came Mungo to partner Ollie and with both players on 0, it felt like we were starting again from scratch.  Both Form 7 boys batted extremely well with Ollie making some great runs and rotating the strike and Mungo, in his first appearance for the 2nds, timing some lovely shots to the off side.  They took us on to over 120 runs before Ollie was retired and Mungo fell to a straight delivery.  The tail enders made a few to get us to 134/6.

After match tea, Maclean opened the bowling with Joshua and both bowlers kept the run rate very low with their accurate deliveries.  The breakthrough came from Edward who pitched it short to allow the batman to pop one up to Maclean at mid-off.  Two wickets fell in Joel’s first over and Finn bowled a beauty to dismiss one of their more dangerous players.  ‘Safe-hands Maclean’ was there again to take two excellent catches, including one from his own delivery and when Joshua caught the ball to give Edward’s his  second wicket, we were so close to getting them all out and just a dropped catch on the final delivery preventing us doing so.

Another win for the 2nd XI gives them an unbeaten first half of term and this was a good team performance with two players in particular standing out – Ollie for his superb batting and Maclean for his fielding.  Well done, boys!

Another glorious summer’s afternoon over in Musselburgh today and playing on the beautiful 1stXI square, we really did hit our straps today and put in very nearly the complete performance to convincingly beat a good Loretto side by 82 runs. A very strong batting display meant we are able to rotate the bowling quite a lot and this allowed us to look a little bit towards next year as Max, Edward and Quin all bowled good spells taking wickets at regular intervals and run scoring was very difficult. The boys played some really impressive cricket today and once again, we showed real strength in depth in all areas of the game.

Harry won the toss again and elected to bat first, and I was keen to see how we would bounce back after a poor batting performance last week against Fettes (despite winning the game easily after a superb bowling performance). Jack and Harry opened and Loretto, once again, bowled tightly as they had done two weeks ago when we played them in the rain; we were 16-0 off five overs, playing each ball on its merit and running well too. Then Jack succumbed to a straight one and played across the line which brought Sebastian to the crease. He has worked really hard in the nets and I felt it important to give him the opportunity to bat high in the order against good bowling to see if he could build an innings; together, they put on 63 in exactly ten overs, upping the run rate and batting well together. 

I always say how crucial it is that batters bat together, encourage each other, speak to each other and keep each other mentally strong, and the skipper certainly kept Sebastian on his toes with plenty of quick singles taken too! After a slightly hesitant start, Seb got his feet moving much better, and he hit the two shots of the match with consecutive textbook cover drives hit very hard along the ground to the boundary; a terrific knock of 24 off 32 balls, but ended slightly farcically as he jogged through for a single and was run out failing to ground his bat. A disappointing end to a super innings, but one he will hopefully learn from – total focus and concentration is required and not to throw it away having got in!

Harry went on and on, reaching his 50 off 56 balls and then accelerated at just the right time, scoring 23 off just 13 as we pushed on in the final few overs, reaching 151-4 off our 25 overs. It was Harry’s best innings of the season, full of technically correct shots, playing each ball on its merit, and quick to capitalise on scoring opportunities be that taking singles when the field was pushed back, or else playing forcing shots through the gaps. A joy to watch; well batted. A very good score given the quality of the bowling, and I was really pleased with how we bounced back from last week.

In reply, Vinjero and Harry bowled miserly three over spells, each giving nothing away and Harry picking up the key wicket, bowling their captain for just 3. The pair of them bowl in really good areas, forcing the batsmen to play and backed up by excellent fielding, cutting off run scoring opportunities which then forces the batsmen to play false shots. Edward and Will were the change bowlers and again both bowled very well indeed with Will picking up two wickets for just 5 runs in his 4 overs; he continues to work hard and his left arm bowling is going to be a real handful in the next few years. Our top four bowlers produce the goods time and time again and are very hard to score off. So 35-4 off 14 overs, game done and dusted.

However, this was the perfect opportunity to rotate the bowling round and Max and Quin bowled extended spells this afternoon which bodes well for next year. Max bowled a fantastic spell of 5 overs, 1 maiden, taking 4 wickets for just 8 runs; he bowled very straight if truth be told which is half the battle, but Todd once again snaffled a couple of excellent catches behind the stumps and there was also a fantastic run out from Jack who had an excellent afternoon in the field. Impressive and really encouraging, and although we could have wrapped things up much earlier, it was important to give others a go and perform under pressure out in the middle. It is always different from bowling in the nets, and today was the ideal situation to try things out. So Loretto ended 69-9 and a comfortable and convincing win.

They have been our strongest opposition this term so far, and it was good to lock horns with Peter again, once of this parish, who was very complimentary about the quality of cricket we played today. It has been an outstanding first half of term and this group of boys have played some really good cricket over the past 4 weeks. Now, the focus is on exams and F8 camp, but after that we have the Merchiston Super 8s, and matches against SMC, Carlton CC and Ardvreck still to come so there is a lot of cricket still to play once Common Entrance is out of the way!

Very well played today, boys. Another impressive team effort, and your Lucas ice cream afterwards was well deserved!

On a blustery day at Merchiston, Max won the toss and elected to bat, Diederik and James made full use of the pitch and got Cargilfield off to an absolute flyer off the first four overs.

This continued throughout with some solid batting from Theo and Oscar laying a foundation for our remaining batsmen to blast our way to 135 off our 20 overs. Key to this total was the running between the wickets from the whole group alongside impressive power hitting from Cameron, Duncan and Alex.

Our bowling was consistently good with Chay, Duncan and Oliver bowling particularly economically resulting in Merchiston having to force the game, leading too a comfortable 43 run victory for Cargilfield.

Lost to Loretto 8 ½ to 3

Lost to St Mary’s 10 to 2 ½

We had a super afternoon down in Melrose for a mini triangular tournament with the Under 10 girls. Against stiff opposition, the girls played well and have made great improvements in their games over the last few weeks.

In the first match against Loretto, there was some great fielding by Isobel who was able to retrieve long balls and Judith made two great catches (in almost exactly the same place)! A solid bowling and backstop performance by Mariella and Annika, teaming up with Lottie at 1st to make a good triangle. Mariella also scored a great rounder in the batting innings, with Lola and Famke also scoring.

Against St Mary’s, Anna batted very well to score an excellent rounder and 2 half rounders. Lara, Bea and Sophia also had some good hits of the ball and were unlucky not to score from these. St Mary’s had some very strong batters and scored some good rounders but the girls remained competitive in the field with some great deep fielding again from Isobel.

Well done to all the girls for trying hard and being excellent representatives of the school. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in the borders in wonderful surroundings and with great team spirit.

The Under Nines enjoyed some fine rounders in the sun against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and whilst our striking of the ball was not great we were able to achieve a large number of half rounders by running around the pitch. Some girls did hit but unfortunately not into spaces which might have allowed them to score. Esme and Tunrayo did manage to bat more successfully however, scoring fine individual rounders. Athena, Nadia and Natasha were unfortunately stumped but our innings of 30 balls still delivered 11 ½ rounders. Loretto were unable to match this total, despite gaining some half rounders from no balls. Izzy and Lucy worked hard on getting girls out at first and getting Loretto’s first batter out was an achievement. Final score Cargilfield 11 ½ Loretto 4

The match against St Mary’s was a much closer affair with some super fielding from St Mary’s, getting the ball back to their bowler very quickly and neatly and stopping us from scoring half rounders on no hits. This time it was Maddie and Lucy who batted well and scored full rounders but we managed to score several half rounders. We scored a total of 8 ½. St Marys’ went into bat and Esme’s bowling had a bit of a dip. She battled on however and I was pleased to see that she did not let it affect her. Jemina and Beatrice played well scoring individual rounders but we tried hard and got four of their nine girls out. Amalia almost got one of their batters out but apparently missed the post! We held them to a final score of seven rounders. Final score Cargilfield 8 ½ St Mary’s 7

Well done, girls! We must improve on our batting but good progress overall!

The Under Nines enjoyed some fine rounders in the sun against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and whilst our striking of the ball was not great we were able to achieve a large number of half rounders by running around the pitch. Some girls did hit but unfortunately not into spaces which might have allowed them to score. Esme and Tunrayo did manage to bat more successfully however, scoring fine individual rounders. Athena, Nadia and Natasha were unfortunately stumped but our innings of 30 balls still delivered 11 ½ rounders. Loretto were unable to match this total, despite gaining some half rounders from no balls. Izzy and Lucy worked hard on getting girls out at first and getting Loretto’s first batter out was an achievement. Final score Cargilfield 11 ½ Loretto 4

The match against St Mary’s was a much closer affair with some super fielding from St Mary’s, getting the ball back to their bowler very quickly and neatly and stopping us from scoring half rounders on no hits. This time it was Maddie and Lucy who batted well and scored full rounders but we managed to score several half rounders. We scored a total of 8 ½. St Marys’ went into bat and Esme’s bowling had a bit of a dip. She battled on however and I was pleased to see that she did not let it affect her. Jemina and Beatrice played well scoring individual rounders but we tried hard and got four of their nine girls out. Amalia almost got one of their batters out but apparently missed the post! We held them to a final score of seven rounders. Final score Cargilfield 8 ½ St Mary’s 7

Well done, girls! We must improve on our batting but good progress overall!

1st Rounders v St Mary’s and Loretto

Won v 16 – 2 ½ v Loretto

Lost 5 ½ - 3 v St Mary’s

The 1st girls played a triangular today against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and had comfortable match, never looking much under pressure. Our trio of Rosanna, Sophie and Amelia worked well and they put players out at post 1 on balls 6, 7, 8 and 12. The Loretto girls tried hard but our fielding was good and catches from Katie on ball 13 and Ellie on ball 17 saw their team down to 3 and they were out after 21 balls. Our batting was good today and the girls ran extremely well round the posts. Scores from Sophie (3), Amelia (2 ½ ), Katie (3), Ellie (3), Flora (2 ½ ), Izzy ( ½ ), Emma ( ½ ) and Alannah (1) saw us push ahead to a total of 16.

Our next match was against St Mary’s and it was clear early on that this was going to be a much tougher one. We batted first and the girls looked a little nervy and not as relaxed as the previous match. The St Mary’s girls fielded deep, and we struggled to get to post 2, with no full rounders being scored throughout the match. Izzy played a gutsy game and she was our high scorer with 1 ½ . With only 3 scored, we needed to play a blinder in the fielding innings and to be fair, we played well, but the St Mary’s girls were too strong in their batting. Izzy made a great catch on ball 16 and we managed to keep the score down to only 1 rounder after 18 balls so it really was all to play for, but we gave away a couple of soft half rounders and the game slipped away from us.

On a beautiful sunny afternoon the third 11 travelled to Fettesin the hope of continuing their unbeaten run. Having lost the toss Cargilfiled were asked to bat. Openers Ed Macquaker and Leo Pike put on 29 for the first wicket but struggled to dominate the Fettes opening bowlers. Josh McLeod and Mungo Forbes-Cable came together shortly afterwards and formed a great partnership, both hitting the boundary on 4 occasions, before Mungo was run out for 17 and Josh caught and bowled for 24. Adley Ebeh added a further 14 runs to the total before being dismissed by opposition bowler Sandy, who then took wickets with his next two balls to claim a fine hatrick. Katie Henderson made her debut for the team at number 11 and batted resolutely alongside Rowan Findlay to bring the innings to a close with Cargilfield having scored 150 for 9.

With a total of 150 to defend Katie Henderson and Rosanna Walker opened the bowling. Both conceded only two runs from their two overs with Rosanna claiming two fine wickets with her first six deliveries. Both Mungo Forbes-Cable and Joshua McLeod took one wicket and a splendid catch each. Other wickets were taken by Edward Macquaker,2, and Jaime Ramos Montero. Edward CS gave another confident performance as wicket keeper. In the end due to some excellent performances in the field Cargilfield proved to be too strong for Fettes and ran out comfortable winners by 43 runs.

1stXI beat Fettes

The first real day of summer, and what a glorious afternoon we spent playing on the Fettes 1st team square, the best surface we will play on all season. It looked an absolute belter of a track and with a lightening fast outfield, we should have ‘filled our boots’ when we chose to bat first against a pretty average Fettes side if truth be told. We scored 101, all out in the 21st over with over 24 balls left which is unforgivable really. We started off too slowly, not taking the quick singles to get the scoreboard moving, playing too cautiously against very unthreatening bowling; add in a couple of rash shots, and it was left to Harry D and William to play properly and show how easy run scoring was. A pretty disappointing effort if truth be told, and we need to focus a lot more when the bowling is not as strong rather than mentally relaxing which is what I felt we did today.

However, our bowling attack, backed up with some excellent catching and ground fielding, strangled the Fettes batsmen who found it almost impossible to score any runs. Vinjero bowled a very hostile opening spell of 5 overs, taking three wickets including an excellent catch from Todd behind the stumps, and that was that really. Harry D took 4 wickets in a terrific spell by bowling very straight, as he always does, and after an outstanding piece of fielding from Edward with a direct hit to the strikers end from mid off, it was left to the skipper bowling leg spin who took the final wicket with another fine catch by Todd standing up, off a thin edge. All out for 50.

So not the complete performance by an means, but all the hard work in the winter and this term by the bowlers is paying dividends; opposition batsmen find it difficult to score runs, and when this happens, they begin to play rash shots and wickets tumble. Now we just need the batters to knuckle down a bit more, and they have the ideal opportunity on Saturday when we welcome Belhaven for what is sure to be a very good contest!

Well played, in parts!

Won by 56 runs

On a glorious sunny afternoon at Cargilfield, we welcomed our friends form Fettes. We won the toss and elected to bat first. A strong opening partnership between Rory and Harry saw us to a healthy 50 partnership. We then had a middle order collapse and lost 6 wickets in quick succession. Showing real strength in depth, Ollie and James StC steadied the ship and actually blocked the accurate bowls. They added a further 50 runs between them and we saw out our overs on 138 runs.

Fettes batted well but were unfortunate to lose some key wickets early on. Our bowling was accurate and consistent, restricting the Fettes boys’ ability to score runs. Ollie impressed with a double wicket maiden.

Well done, boys!

Under Nines Triangular Tournament against Belhaven and Loretto

What fabulous weather for rounders! The Under nines settled down on the Headmaster’s lawn to watch our visitors play the first match. It turned out to be a close affair with Belhaven batting better and securing 10 rounders to Loretto’s 7 ½. Cargilfield then went in to bat against Belhaven, having lost the toss. Initially we were rather timid not making regular contact with the ball but then Athena came into the batting square and she scored a great rounder. Lucy and Tunrayo followed her good example in the second round and then Savannah, Lucy and Maddie also scored as our ten minute innings came to a close. Our half rounders added to our full rounders giving us a score of 11 ½.We had watched the previous game carefully and had worked out who the best hitters were and I am delighted to say that we got five of them out. Lucy and Izzy worked very well getting out players at first post. Amalia was not as sharp on second but still managed to get people out and Esme and Natasha took two great catches. Maddie and Athena worked well out deep and Lucy chased down some balls also. All in all it was a good team effort and a good win. 

Cargilfield 11½ Belhaven 6½.

rightColBody

We won the toss against Loretto and again started to get players out at first post. Savannah rushed across to get a player out at second and Tunrayo did likewise. Our fielding was tight and we put pressure on the runners. I was delighted that we managed to get the whole team out before their ten minutes innings was complete. This was quite an achievement in our first competitive fixture of the season. In fact the team thought they had won! Careful as we needed to bat and beat their batting score! It turned out to be a close game as we struggled to hit the balls bowled by Jessica the Loretto captain. She bowled very well and then worked fast and accurately with the back stop to hold us at second. Thankfully we started to score after a shaky start and Esme, Lucy and Izzy scored. With half rounders we managed a total of six rounders, a narrow victory. 

Cargilfield 6 Loretto 4 ½.

Well done on your first win girls! Lessons to be learned include keeping your eye on the ball to help your chance of hitting it! We will be practising this!

It turned out to be a close affair with Belhaven batting better and securing 10 rounders to Loretto’s 7 ½. Cargilfield then went in to bat against Belhaven, having lost the toss. Initially we were rather timid not making regular contact with the ball but then Athena came into the batting square and she scored a great rounder. Lucy and Tunrayo followed her good example in the second round and then Savannah, Lucy and Maddie also scored as our ten minute innings came to a close. Our half rounders added to our full rounders giving us a score of 11 ½.We had watched the previous game carefully and had worked out who the best hitters were and I am delighted to say that we got five of them out. Lucy and Izzy worked very well getting out players at first post. Amalia was not as sharp on second but still managed to get people out and Esme and Natasha took two great catches. Maddie and Athena worked well out deep and Lucy chased down some balls also. All in all it was a good team effort and a good win. 

Cargilfield 11½ Belhaven 6½.

We won the toss against Loretto and again started to get players out at first post. Savannah rushed across to get a player out at second and Tunrayo did likewise. Our fielding was tight and we put pressure on the runners. I was delighted that we managed to get the whole team out before their ten minutes innings was complete. This was quite an achievement in our first competitive fixture of the season. In fact the team thought they had won! Careful as we needed to bat and beat their batting score! It turned out to be a close game as we struggled to hit the balls bowled by Jessica the Loretto captain. She bowled very well and then worked fast and accurately with the back stop to hold us at second. Thankfully we started to score after a shaky start and Esme, Lucy and Izzy scored. With half rounders we managed a total of six rounders, a narrow victory. 

Cargilfield 6 Loretto 4 ½.

Well done on your first win girls! Lessons to be learned include keeping your eye on the ball to help your chance of hitting it! We will be practising this!
