Under 14 XI crowned County Champions
6 July 2011
The under 14 XI maintained their amazing 100% record with a convincing victory over Wymondham College in the final of the County stage of the Lord's Taverners' National Cricket Trophy.
The U14XI defeated Wymondham in a low scoring final played at Wymondham College. Batting first on a dry, dusty wicket Wymondham got off to a flyer scoring 29 off the first 4 overs, but at the introduction of spin, the game was turned on its head. Leg spinner, Yash Kulkarni, bowling with control and guile finished with a match winning 4 for 4 off his 6 overs and, aided by Ed Smith (2 for 12 off 6 overs), Lewis Dorling (2 for 13) and Simon Proctor (1 for 5), the Schools’ 4 spinners reduced Wymondham to 68 all out. All four bowlers were supported by some excellent catching.
In reply, Wymondham opened with their two county spinners, but to no avail, as Elliott George (21) and Dylan Simmons (12) put on 27 for the first wicket. Lawrence Randle and Alex Codd steered us towards victory before though both were dismissed with a handful of runs required.
This win completes an incredible unbeaten season for the U14s (they have won 11 games from 11 played leaving them top of the Schools’ Cricket Performance League) and propels them to the national stages next year and, hopefully, to a similar level of success as their immediate seniors, the U15XI, who reached the quarter finals of the national stages of the Lord’s Taverners’ National Schools Cricket Trophy in which over 1500 schools take part.
