End of term report

So the 2010/11 season has finally come to an end, and the conclusion for Fegocowosa Cricket Clun has to be something like "has made progress, but can do better". In total the team played 14 competitive matches, winning 7 and losing 7. Our standings in each competition were:

CCC League division 1: 3rd out of 5
CCC Super Four tournament: runners-up
EDL Knock-out cup: semi-finalists
GTA T20 cup: semi finalists

We showed that we could match any side on our day, but we still lacked the consistency necessary to bring home a trophy.

Our batting was heavily reliant on Emmanuel Okwudili (448 runs), Femi Oduyebo (238 runs) and Azeez Salako (221 runs). We need another 2 or 3 batsmen to step up to make sure we consistently put big scores on the board.

The bowling attack was led by Femi Oduyebo (2o wickets), Frank Omozejele (18 wickets) and Kehinde "Kento" Olabinwonu (16 wickets). We lacked a consistent 3rd pace bowler and a regular second spinner to back up Kento.

Congratulations must go to Emmanuel Okwudili and Femi Oduyebo, who were selected for the Nigerian national team that performed so well in Botswana and South Africa. We hope they will continue to fly the FGCW flag high in Uganda and Malaysia later on this year.

So we go back to the planning board over the next 3 months. Each of the last 3 years has seen the team move forward, but as we climb the ladder the competition gets tougher. Next year will be our toughest challenge yet.
