Congratulations go to Will Bowman, who was named as the Bowler of the Day and to Jonty Black for securing the Spirit of Cricket Award.

Ben Wilcox from Stow collected the Batter of the Day award.

The squad was made up of Edward Maxwell-Preston, Ethan Pallant, Harry Nunn, Jake Pett, Jayden Borges, Jonty Black, Robert McCall, Sam Utting and Will Bowman.

The team was managed by Steve Utting, George Bowman and Emily Utting.
