Moyles Court won the toss and chose to bowl first. Moyles Court started well with the ball with Jacob causing the FSM batsmen lots of trouble by hitting a very consistent line and length. Jacob took a wicket in his second over with the score on 7 which left FSM in trouble but unfortunately the other Moyles Court bowlers found bowling conditions tougher and conceded 26 extras in all during the FSM innings. Moyles Court kept taking wickets at crucial times which helped to restrict the batsmen with only two batters making it into double figures. Callum took two excellent catches when diving one handed, bringing an end to FSM’s most dangerous batsmen. With some late runs scored, the innings closed on 77-6 off of their 16 over, with all the bowlers taking a wicket and Jacob taking two wickets for just 3 runs from his 4 overs, which was excellent.
Luis and Connor opened the batting for Moyles Court. Both looked comfortable until Luis was run out on the last ball of the over. The poor running between the wickets has been a common theme during the games so far this year, with three run outs occurring in the last two matches. Callum came to the crease and looked positive and was striking the ball well until he was caught trying to find a boundary. An excellent partnership between Connor and Jacob set the chase up very nicely for Moyles Court leaving only 30 to win off of 7 overs with eight wickets remaining which should have been comfortable. Moyles Court however lost both Connor and Jacob P in quick succession which ultimately proved crucial to the outcome of the match. None of the remaining batsmen were able to come in and score freely enough to keep the rate at an achievable rate. Ultimately Moyles Court were bowled out in the last over with the score on 69. FSM only conceded 16 extras which ultimately proved crucial to the outcome of the match. Forest Sandle Manor won by 8 runs.
Man-of-the-Match: Jacob S for an excellent disciplined bowling display.

The match was very close – only half a rounder separating the two teams after the first innings.
Moyles Court proved to be marginally better at batting than Bournemouth Collegiate but not as confident at running nor willing to take risks – hence Bournemouth Collegiate scored 1.5 more rounders.
However, Moyles Court were the superior fielding team – getting all of Bournemouth Collegiate out and preventing them from completing their batting.
Final Score: Bournemouth Collegiate School - 9 rounders Moyles Court - 7.5 rounders
Player of the Match: India

On a cool but dry day, Moyles Court hosted over 220 runners from 10 other schools in our annual cross country event. The course was run over a challenging cross country route that began with a long drag up a steep hill and then continued on an undulating route, with lots of deep puddles, finishing with a sprint to the finishing line down a sandy incline.

On a beautiful spring day, Moyles Court arrived at Yarrells School ready to compete in the under 9s rugby tournament. Excitement, anticipation and nerves filled the air as all the teams listened carefully to the tournament rules. Each team were to play 3 games of 10 minutes, with a play off for 1st place at the end. Moyles Court were ready, and with incredible support and encouragement the two teams set off for their matches.
The A team played with real aggression and skill, using their team effectively winning 1 game, drawing another and losing 1 game by 1 point. Once the team had warmed up, Matthew, Alex and Harrison, when in possession of the ball were extremely quick, leaving the opposing team behind and scoring many tries. The fast paced matches kept the spectators entertained and the players focused. Alex earned the name ‘whippet’ by the other teams for his speed and ability to nip in and out the players. Fantastic play resulted in 3rd place overall.
Man of the Match A Team: Alex
B Team began the tournament nervously, for some this was their first match. It did not take long for this team to find confidence and play just as aggressively as the A Team. Sophie, Kyla and Chloe worked well together to pass the ball to Jase, Lea and Margaux who scored the tries for the B team. Excellent play resulted in 3rd place overall.
Man of the Match B Team: Margaux
Both teams showed exemplary sportsmanship and behaviour. Well done.Continue Reading…
