Cheltenham U11 Boys vs Amsterdamsche CC touring side

  •  Cheltenham U11 Boys took to the field on Friday 22nd July against an Amsterdam U11-14 touring side for our first international fixture of the season
  • Mixed teams were played given the unknown quantity and quality of players but - with two Dutch National players alongside a number of county and zonal players - the game was evenly balanced
  • 146 for 7 played 137 for 6 in a tight 25 over game
  • A “silver” salver was presented to Amsterdam engraved with the match details and they reciprocated with waffles, socks, a centenary Amsterdam medallion and a tour t-shirt for MOTM Olly Michael (retiring not out alongside Tibo, Christopher Byrne and Jude Staff)
  • A hugely enjoyable day for both sides and fantastic to see the skill levels and interest from the Dutch boys
