This tournament was held throughout the winter season in Birmingham and as a result finding players was not easy for the three trips but well done to all the boys who did take part and huge thanks to the parents who drove the team down. (Special mention to Mark Scott who did it twice)
Our final round of matches on 17th March were tough and not surprisingly with many boys playing this format for the first time we were unsuccessful in all our games as the opposing teams were all very well drilled and clearly very experienced.
However, the encouraging thing is that the majority of those playing for us were either under 13 or under 12 and so the experience gained this year by these boys (allied with the great performances by our u 11 side) give us much hope for next year, when hopefully the event will be held in London. (There is talk that indoor cricket might possibly be played later this year at Alexandra Palace )
