Havering coach Nick Ison admitted his team could have done much better at the London Youth Games indoor cricket finals.

Having qualified with good wins over Harrow and Westminster last month, Havering went up against Ealing in the quarter-finals at Lord’s.

And they were left with a mountain to climb after their west London rivals piled up 115 from their 10 overs at the MCC Cricket Academy.

Ison, a member at Upminster Cricket Club, said: “It was a tough game. Maybe the pressure got to the boys.

“We started poorly and never really recovered. Ealing batted and bowled very well and were better than us, but we could have performed much better.”

Havering struggled with the bat in reply, scoring just 27, but Ison felt there were some positives to take from the day, particularly in the field.

He added: “Nathan Duke bowled really well and got two wickets, including one very sharp caught and bowled.

“Ellis Pickering also took a one-handed diving caught and bowled.

“But overall we bowled too wide and we really struggled with the bat and didn’t help ourselves with four poor runs out.

“It was a good experience for them, though, and hopefully they can learn a few things from it. It’s still a great achievement in reaching Lord’s as we haven’t done that in years!”
