Farnham CC U15s 2015 Season

The U15s had a quite successful season. They finished mid-table in the Two Counties League (TCL) and reached the final of the inaugural TCL 8 a side knockout cup.  Sadly the season ended with a whimper due to a series of cancelled matches towards the end of July, including the final of the 8 a side cup.  The trophy was shared equally with Grayswood, the final opponents..

In the league the U15s achieved two notable victories:  away at Finchampstead and at home to Guildford. These were notable wins as this age group had lost all previous matches against Finchampstead and Guildford over the past seven years the squad has been together.  The team spirit in these games was exceptional.

There were a number of excellent individual performances during the season.  Henry Beattie took 5 wickets for 9 runs against Guildford and in the same match Ed Milton-Seall hit an unbeaten 50 to secure the win with a six off the last ball. Daniel Peers scored an unbeaten 50 in the away match at Grayshott and ended the season with a batting average of 44.

A total of seven U15s made the transition to play for the Farnham Academy  (3rd XI) team and it is hoped  these and some others will have further opportunities to play in Academy matches next season.

Overall it was a very enjoyable season. The Friday night training was enhanced by the support the squad received from Farnham 1st and 2nd XI players, who connected well with the boys.
