Ware’s indoor team reach national competition after unbeaten campaign

Ware Cricket Club have been crowned champions of the HECC sport indoor cricket league and will represent Hertfordshire in the national competition

The Maltmakers secured the title with a match to spare after an incredible 8 match unbeaten run, recording superb wins along the way against top Hertfordshire opposition in Hertford and Sawbridgeworth as well as West Essex giants Harlow. The competition is well represented locally with many of the major clubs in East Herts and West Essex taking part.

Ware regularly rotated their talented squad throughout the campaign, fielding a total of 16 players led by new club captain Jay Webster. Notable performances came from right across the squad as they overwhelmed almost all before them.

During the run to the title only Newport from Essex were able to show any real resistance, pulling off a dramatic tie in a match that Ware had dominated.

In what was effectively the title decider against Harlow, some lucky spectators were fortunate enough to witness ex-Warwickshire and England A wicket keeper and Ware head coach Keith Piper behind the stumps for the first time since his retirement from first class cricket.
