The U13 team in particular have been in impressive league form with a 131 run victory over Alnmouth on Sunday 23 June and a 120 run victory over Ponteland on 30 June, the second of the two victories was significant as it saw us replace Ponteland at the top of the table. So many impressive performances over the two games, but special mention to Haydon Mustard, Ella Lillico and Fardin Bhuyian who all scored 30+ in each game before they had to retire, Sam Rowe with 7 wickets and Ibrahim Tayyab and Abu Siddique each with 4 wickets over the two games.
