Griffiths blames himself for defeat
12:05pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
HALESOWEN skipper Wes Griffiths believes the club is in good hands despite bowing out of the season with a six-wicket reverse against Harborne in Birmingham League Division Two.
Griffiths said: “A couple of the lads have really come through recently and they have a big future with the club.”
He picked out 17-year-old Charlie Tromans and opener Kester Moseley as players to watch, Griffiths added: “Kester’s been around for a quite a while now, but he’s really stood out this season and scored more than 600 runs. He’s beginning to look a class-act.
“Charlie’s been one of the successes of the season. “He batted beautifully against Harborne and made it look really easy when everyone else was struggling.”
Griffiths blamed himself for the defeat to Harborne.
He said: “I completerly read it all wrong and choose to bat first. I misread the conditions and if I could do it again I wouldn’t have batted first.
“If we could have reached 120, it would have made things more interesting, but Harborne batted and bowled better than us”.
Halesowen found themselves removed for just 82 runs, Tromans with 27 being the only batsman to make any impression.
Harborne then raced to a winning total of 84-4 in just 23 overs.
