School’s county joy
12:00pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in Local
BROMSGROVE School’s under-12s cricket team have won the County Championship for the second tine in three years.
The team saw off Christopher Whitehead School in the final of the Bunbury Cup last week.
On a cool but bright evening Bromsgrove batted first and made a very comfortable start with Tom Maidment and Harry Thompson both making half centuries.
They were ably followed at the close with some firm striking from both Ben Humphries and Joe Harper, to take the score to a very impressive 195-5 off the allotted 20 overs.
In reply, Christopher Whitehead School struggled with effective Bromsgrove bowling and lost early wickets.
Coach Richard Widdop said: “Most impressive was a hat-trick from captain Evan Lewis from his first three ÅÅ County Champions: Bromsgrove School’s under-12s. balls of his spell.”
