POTTERS Bar's 5th XI fielded their youngest side of the season against Cockfosters 4ths last Saturday.

Six of the Bar team came from the club's Under-15's colts age group.

The youthful Potters Bar side posted a score of 192 all out in the Saracens Herts League Division 12 clash, with cousins Bradley Swale and Dan Pett starring with the bat.

But that wasn't enough to beat their Cockfosters opponents, who rattled up 196 for the loss of just three wickets in reply.

Bar captain Colin Titmuss won the toss and elected to bat first.

After the skipper went in the opening over for four, it was up to Mike Rowlands and Ben Taylor to steady the ship.

Taylor soon fell for 21 runs and a mini- collapse saw the Potters Bar side on just 97-7.

Up stepped the cousins Swale and Pett to take control.

Bradley scored an excellent 47 off just 43 balls and Dan chipped in with 31 to take the score to 192 all out.

Chambers was the pick of the bowling with 5-67.

With a young attack, Potters Bar took to the field and started well with Dan Pett taking a wicket with the first ball of his spell.

However, eight other bowlers tried and did not succeed in defeating the Cockfosters defence, as they went on to get the target for only three wickets down.

Hale was unbeaten on 87 for Cockfosters at the close.

Pick of the bowling from Potters Bar was Dan Pett, who has a bright future ahead of him at the club.
