My Autobiographical Essay

It was my day of judgement at Copford Cricket Club, in a tiny village unknown to many people. All of the people important to me were there ready to watch me. I arrived at the venue at 12:10pm. My stomach was churning, and I felt very small and insignificant.

This was to be my first full game for the first team. I was thrilled to have reached this milestone and I had come prepared to battle against the fully grown, brute-like men who were just waiting for me to be their easy target. I was sitting all alone in the corner of the pavilion whilst my opponents were strolling past, full of confidence, staring and laughing with a disrespectful look on their faces, merely because of my young and tender age. I walked slowly into the small and cramped changing rooms.

The minutes were passing by as I was getting close to the end of a perfect day. My final shot added another four points to our score and, for  the first time that day I felt I could easily hold my head up high as I marched off the pitch, with the sound of my team mates’ applause ringing in my ears. I was smiling broadly as my team mates congratulated me; the opposition could only watch, loathing every moment as they had been outplayed by a five feet seven inches, fourteen year old, school boy. I was certainly over the moon at having achieved such a goal so early on in my life.

Before I went to bed that night one final thought had entered my brain: no-one will ever be able to take this away from me.  No matter what happens in the future, I will never forget the day that I scored 56 runs not out.
