Eddie at Lord's

eddie had a good day yesterday at a little tournament at lords organised by our club PHCC.   there were visiting teams from Scotland and Amsterdam!   the u11s didn't win, but we did beat the eventual champions Beaconsfield (and we only lost 1 game but suffered from an arcane countback system).    Eddie was best player in the Beaconsfield game, after he and Xan were the only 2 of my players willing to open the batting (in previous matches we'd got in early trouble each time).

photos of the famous urn, from the England balcony (only one boy in pics has english parents), plus the scorecard v Beaconsfield, and our little warrior after his innings, he was unbeaten to the end and hit the winning runs.
