Captain praises Division One performance

South Woodford Cricket Club captain Joe Craddock beleives it was a ‘great’ performance, despite drawing against Harold Wood on Saturday.

The skipper admits he was disappointed not to get the win, as he feels the all round performance was a dominant one, but believes they can use that in their next match.

Craddock said: “It was a very good all round performance, but disappointed not to get the win.

“Once the dust settled we took the boys in and just said we out bowled and batted them throughout the game.

“I’m very proud of them especially with the young team we’ve got right now.”

He heaped praise on bowler Harry Shirt, who got five wickets, while also claiming Bradley Copper had a good game.

“Harry bowled perfectly and to have someone like him leading the attack is great for us,” Craddock said.

“Bradley’s all round performance was good and they both bowled particularly well.”

Craddock was also pleased with his own performance, where he hit 103 runs during the match, but he’s hoping his form will continue.

“Long may it continue,” he said.

“Obviously pleased, anywhere I can contribute as a captain.”

He also formed quite formiddable partnership with Kasey Harris and Copper and had plenty of praise for the pair of battsmen.

“It’s always good to start out well and we’re always good partners,” he added.

“Kasey looked very good and extremely confident and Bradley looked good as well.”
