U13 Minor Team take second place in the 2013 ECF Jamboree

Congratulations to our U13 minor team for a fantastic second place in the ECF County Championship held at Haberdasher’s Aske’s Boys’ School on 30th June 2012.


Up against some very strong teams from 17 other counties, we were sitting in equal 4th place after round 1 with 4 points out of 6 and slipped to 5th after round 2 with 3 points out of 6.


Our illustrious team of juniors were up for the battle in the third and final round and where other teams began to falter in the hot afternoon sun, our team battled on strongly, churning out win after win after win and scoring a brilliant 6 points out of 6.


It was enough to catapult the team up into second place with 13 points overall, ahead of Sussex on the tie breaker, but not quite enough to overtake Northamptonshire who were first with 15.5 points.
