The 2018 U14 team came together on the 7th September to celebrate another successful season.
Taking a massive step up from last years league entries we declined to enter the West Surrey League to enter the top level Surrey Junior Invitational League (SJIL), the pinnacle for Junior cricket in our age group, as well as the Mid Surrey League (MSL).
What followed was an excellent season where other than one game we played to our potential and finished a commendable 5th out of 12 teams in the SJIL and 3rd out of 8 in the MSL where our only two loses were to the teams who finished above us with both going to the last over. A lot of the games were close fought and it gave the boys some real competition.
There were some brilliant performances this year and here are some highlights:
- SJIL - Old Whitgiftians - Josh Lyon 103
