TWCC wins Colts Festival 2016
8 teams from across Kent, Sussex and Surrey took part in another successful Colts ‘U17′ Festival’ at the Nevill Ground masterminded by Toby Johns. We were blessed with glorious weather all week which allowed for some excellent cricket to be played. Over the 4 days fifteen 50s were scored and one boy finished with the remarkable figures of 8 wickets for 6 runs with his leg spin!
Reigate Priory CC and Tunbridge Wells CC won all their matches in the group stages to progress to Friday’s Final. Last years winners Bexley CC beat Hartley Country Club CC by 6 wickets to win the 3rd Place play off match.
In the Final, Reigate Priory batted first and were pegged back by some impressive bowling and fielding. TWCC were rampant in the field and skittled Priory for only 90 all out. After an early tea TWCC’s openers were not to be dislodged as they guided the hosts to an emphatic 10 wicket win with Matt Barker left undefeated on 61. It was the sixth year in succession that Reigate Priory CC have made the Final but 2016 was to be Tunbridge Wells cricket club’s year!
Very well done to coach Dave Smith and all the boys.
The Youth section plays a very important role in the continued growth and success of the Club and we work hard to encourage youngsters of every ability to develop their cricketing skills and a love for the game.
