Che­sham’s colts cel­e­brated with awards

CRICKET

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE many suc­cesses of Che­sham Cricket Club’s colts sec­tion were cel­e­brated at their ju­nior sec­tion awards evening.

Star billing went to the U13s A boys team, who again re­main un­de­feated in Buck­ing­hamshire, win­ning both the Bucks U13 League and Bucks U13 Cup com­pe­ti­tions, only los­ing when they went on to rep­re­sent the county in the Na­tional Cup, go­ing out to the even­tual win­ners in the re­gional fi­nal.

In the same age group, the B team con­sol­i­dated their po­si­tion in Di­vi­sion One and the C team fin­ished top of Di­vi­sion Four to se­cure pro­mo­tion.

There was more joy for the U14s A team, who re­gained their ti­tle by win­ning the Bucks County League for the fourth time in five years, while the B team con­sol­i­dated their po­si­tion in Di­vi­sion Two by fin­ish­ing mid-ta­ble.

In a close-fought sea­son, the U15s fin­ished mid-ta­ble in Di­vi­sion One, but only eight points be­hind the even­tual win­ners, and made it all the way to the fi­nal in the U15 Cup, be­fore los­ing to a very strong High Wy­combe side.

The U10s played their first Bucks County League sea­son, with both the A and B teams per­form­ing ad­mirably and the A team se­cur­ing pro­mo­tion to Di­vi­sion One.

The U11s A and U12s teams both con­sol­i­dated their po­si­tions in Di­vi­sion One, both fin­ish­ing midtable, while the U11s B, com­pris­ing many who have never played com­pet­i­tive cricket un­til this sea­son, im­proved dra­mat­i­cally through­out the sea­son and recorded their first win.

Mean­while, the U13s girls, com­pris­ing girls in the nine to 13 age range, en­tered the Bucks League and Lady Tav­ern­ers com­pe­ti­tions for the first time and are one of only two all-girls teams in the area to play hard­ball cricket. While they have yet to record their first win, they have per­formed tremen­dously through­out the sea­son.
