Blessed with perfect weather and under the expert organisation of Adrian Gale, there was an excellent Tournament yesterday featuring Ashcombe School, Howard of Effingham School and St Andrew’s School. Therfield School could not make it this year because of ‘cover’ problems but Howard of Effingham School stepped in and brought their Under 13 side as well so we had a full complement.
In the morning the draw paired Howard of Effingham’s Under 14s with their Under 13s and it was the Under 13s who prevailed. In the other match, Ashcombe School beat St Andrew’s Schoolreasonably comfortably.
Ashcombe therefore played Howard Under 13s in the ‘final’ and won pretty convincingly – Howard batting first and scoring 91-4 in their 20 overs, and Ashcombe replying with 93-5 in 11.2 overs.
On the basis of a hat-trick in the Howard of Effingham first round U14/U13 game in the morning Joe Bratley-Brett received the player of the tournament award.
