Under 13 Boys – Chance to Shine Indoor County Finals
The Boys became County Indoor Champions again, after coming out on top at the finals day at Exeter University.
After negotiating their way through a group with Bideford College, Sidmouth and Tavistock, without ever really hitting top gear, the boys began to improve at the time it mattered most. A Semi-Final win over Devonport High School for Boys led to a final re-match against Bideford. The two teams had drawn their group game, however SDCC stepped up to the mark in the final. Batting first, SDCC racked up a solid 91/2 from just 8 overs, and then skittled the North Devon side for just 26 inside 5 overs.
Squad:- Taylor Ingham-Hill (C),Harry Pitman, Charlie Clifford-Bourne, Ben Goble, George Hottot, Sam England, George Senior, Alfie Tucker, Sam Harvey
Under 13 Girls – Chance to Shine Indoor South Devon Area Finals
The development of girl’s cricket at SDCC has been nothing short of remarkable in the last 3 years, culminating in the National under 15 title in summer. The next generation, inspired by their older peers, have begun their journey to emulate that success in some style!
8 sides were in the South Devon round – South Dartmoor were strong enough to field 4! At the end of the group stage, the semi-final line up read all 4 South Dartmoor sides – a fantastic achievement in itself!
After the knock out stages were complete, the final results read 1st = South Dartmoor A, 2nd = South Dartmoor B, 3rd = South Dartmoor C, 4th = South Dartmoor D! Both the A and B team advance to the County Finals – a level of competition not many ‘B’ teams usually get to!
A:- Jemma Ansley, Emily Roberts, Emily Vigers, Ollie Mellit, Abi Froom, Anna Silk, Charlotte Tlustly, Jess Reynolds
B:- Megan Bayles, Lara Jay, Molly Stone, Anneka Cragg, Cornelia McHugh, Beth Barnett, Rebecca Bleeze, Alice Andrews
