A busy day at the Norwood Recreation Ground saw Beverley Town Cricket Club lift two of the three junior cricket cups.
On a surprisingly low scoring day none of the teams batting first reached 100 runs. The Under 11s kicked off proceedings by posting 89 for 8 from their 20 overs against a very good Welton side that had beaten Beverley earlier in the season.
Town’s bowling proved too strong and their catching too sure and Welton were restricted to 63 all out.
The Under 15s started poorly and never recovered, also managing 89 for 8 from 20 overs. Again the opponents were Welton and they cruised to a win in 17 overs for the loss of just one wicket. After a winless start to the season the Under 15s performed really well to reach the final, helped in no small apart by the appearance of many of them in the Sunday 5th XI.
The Under 13s were last off and they posted 98 for 6 against Hull Zingari which was enough as Zingari made 83 for 8. The Under 13 side contained half a dozen players who have already started their senior league careers and a similar number who play representative cricket.
A spokesperson for the club thanked all those who took part, they said;
“Congratulations and well done to all the Beverley Town boys and girls who played; those who make up the squads but were not lucky enough to play in the finals; the managers, coaches and admin people who keep the teams going; the umpires and scorers; Ian Goforth and others who organised and ran the day, and to Welton CC and Hull Zingari CC.”
