Young gun James Dekel had a night he will never forget against Johnson Park in the Under 12's last week. The 1st year player to the Falcons took a remarkable 5-1 (3 maidens) off his 5 overs. Even more amazing was that they were all were bowled!

Club legend Rhys Marget who was watching from the boundary was overheard to say "that's they best spell of bowling I've ever seen from an Under 12 boy... since my 6-2 against Bluebirds in 1979......I was 8 years old by the way!".

James is the leading wicket taker in the competition at an average of 4.8 per wicket and is also in the top 10 for the most runs.

His wicket taking partner on the night was Shenal Goonetilleke who took 3-4 off his 5 overs. 

Ben Marget opened the batting and made a great 32* and Ben O'Brien 21.

The KG Under 12 Black team rolled Johnson Park for 71 and were 7-161 in reply. Great win by the boys!
