Prem Junior Cricket

Last week two Prem cricket sides traveled to the Mae On district to play in matches against two Thailand state schools.  Against Sahakorn 2 school, the Prem A team batted very well to score 274 runs.  Sahakorn A put on a strong chase which led to a very exciting finish, requiring just 9 runs of the last over.  However, a man of the match performance from James McIlroy saw him bowl 6 dot balls to win the match.  The Prem B side, who have many new players to cricket, scored 226, to Sahakorn B's 261, and while losing their match they performed well against students who were 3-4 years older.  Sharing lunch with Sahakorn students in the cafeteria was a highlight, especially when we shared our chocolate milk with our cricketing friends. 

The teams then traveled to Huai Keao School.  In the first match, Prem A scored 285, but in a very tight match they could not hold off the Huai Kaeo A side who scored 289.  Prem B had a very exciting match scoring 249 in their innings, only for Huai Keao B to draw the match on the very last ball.  

We look forward to our final tournament, the Sawadee Sixes Cup, held March 5 at Prem.  This tournament will be sponsored through the profits raise at the annual Chiang Mai International Sixes tournament held at the Gymkhana Cricket Club.
