Westgate entertained Burneside on Friday evening in the U11 Knock - Out Cup Semi - Final. Batting first the home team produced good partnerships throughout their innings: Jack Liptrot & Jack Johnson (18), Lawson Carr & Harry Winder (27), Marcus Palamountain with Charlie Higson & Rayaan Hussain (23), George Abel & Jack Edwards (29) and finally Nathan Allen & Matthew Bradshaw (39) all contributed to the final total of 336.

Some outstanding catches were taken by Jacks Liptrot & Edwards, Marcus, Matthew, George (2), and skipper and keeper Nathan (2) as the visitors were restricted to a score of 211 and Westgate progressed to the Final winning by 120 runs.
The Final will be held at Sedgwick on Bank Holiday Monday 27 August with a 2 pm start against Netherfield.
