Barnt Green Under 13 and Under 15 County Champions

11 months ago By Rob Warner

Our Under 13 team triumphed on Sunday to take the County Cup and progress to the next round of the ECB Nationals.

In what would prove to be another thrilling encounter with our local rivals, Ombersley were put into bat at hosts Stourport CC,and the tone of the match was soon set with Ombersley losing a wicket first ball. Our opponents were determined to play attacking cricket from the off however, and Morgan-Iqbal soon retired on 30 having made light of the occasional bad ball. A fifth over hat-trick from Matt soon had our opponents reeling again, leaving their number 7, Wales, to steady the ship with 25 not out and take them to a respectable 82 for 9 off 14 overs.

Not to be outdone, Ombersley soon found hope in reply seeing us reeling at 2 for 2. A number of small partnerships seemed to steady nerves, but it was left to Ben's 33 to guide us within sight of the target. Still requiring 22 off 3 overs, 15 off over number 18 including two boundaries calmed the Green's nerves and with 5 balls to spare we took the first silverware of the season.

All credit to the lads who came into the side - with numerous Under 13 players away with school, we fielded eight under 12's on the day.

Having received a bye in Regional Round one, we play the winner of either Staffordshire or Shropshire in the ECB National Knockout Midlands Round 2.

Our Under 15 team also marched on last week, lifting the County Cup against Old Elizabethans at Feckenham, seeing them through to the Regional Rounds of the Under 15 ECB National KO Cup.
