Cossonay CC are taking part in the "So British!" event at Coop Leman Centre,
Crissier. The club accepted an invitation from the Swiss Supermarket chain
to promote Cossonay CC and the Swiss Cricket Association as part of a
roadshow promoting British culture and products.

The promotion runs for 2 weeks from 6th June and sees the Club manning a
stand (near Ochsner Sport) displaying cricket equipment and CCC memorabilia.
With posters, cricket demos and a tv showing continuous cricket action, the
effort has certainly stirred the interest of the locals triggering numerous
questions about how the game is played, whilst the braver ones even
had a go at wielding the willow.

U13s

Under a glorious sun and amidst the hubub from an adjacent football
tournament, Cossonay U13s recorded a resounding win against their
counterparts from Gingins.

Having lost the toss, Cossonay batted first and amassed an impressive 127-4
from their 20 overs. The performance was all the more impressive as the vast
majority of the runs came off the bat, with the Gingins bowlers conceding
very few extras to the home side. Another key feature of the innings was
clear calling between the batsmen and regular rotation of the strike.

Cossonay batted positively from the start with Greg Foster (14) and Arnav
Sandu (17) putting the rival bowlers under immediate pressure. Greg's
dismissal brought in one of CCC's U11s, Thomas Bews, who went on to make an
unbeaten 30 not out (retired) including 3 fours. With Arnav run out on a
misjudged single, Nathan Ryan and Ryan Whitlow came together with the latter
making his first appearance of the season. Nathan continued the momentum of
his colleagues by cracking a crowd-pleasing straight six and Ryan blasted 3
sixes and a 4 before being dismissed for a quickfire 27. U11 Sebastien Lodge
and debutant Jackson Vickerstaff then saw the innings neatly through to
completion at 127-4.

A disciplined bowling and impressive fielding performance followed from CCC
seeing Gingins bowled out for 62. Notable performances with the ball came
from pacemen Greg Foster and Nathan Ryan, followed by a very promising
bowling effort from another U11, Liam Vickerstaff.

Once again Cossonay took part in the Zuoz (near St Moritz) 3 day invitational tournament on the last weekend of May. It was an opportunity to play lots of cricket & gain invaluable match experience. Despite an occasionally chilly wind, the weather remained dry and all the boys enjoyed the experience.

Cossonay fielded an U15 side whilst 2 boys guested for other clubs. This included Cossonay's Thomas Bews who took the award for Best U11 batsman in the tournament, scoring 115 runs in 6 innings & getting out only once in the process (average 115 !).
