Avoncroft Under 9’s performed once again to lift the South & Central District Finals Trophy for a second year running.
Arriving on an early morning start over at Worcester Nomads Cricket Club, Croft had been placed in a group alongside Ombersley and Bewdley. Winning both group games we progressed through to the final.
Feckenham came through the other finals day group having been victorious over opposition in the form of Barnards Green and Worcester.
In a below par batting display, easily the team’s worst of the season, the Under 9’s found themselves up against it due to some poor shot selection and quality bowling from there opponents.
However, following a mid-innings de-brief, the lads came out fighting in formidable fashion. Each player bowling exceptional overs with barely a boundary in sight. Combined with some fully committed fielding, and a caught and bowled chance in the final over of the match, Croft had restricted Feckenham to a matching total (allowing for runs deduction for loss of wickets). A magnificent achievement for such a low total to defend. The boys really did themselves proud, and so the trophy was shared between ourselves and Feckenham, awarded and praised by Stuart Lampitt in the baking hot sunshine.
