Stansted Hall & Elsenham beaten by Dunmow in Essex District Cricket Board Under-13 Cup final





Stansted Hall & Elsenham produced a valiant effort as they lost to a strong Dunmow side in the Essex District Cricket Board Under-13 Cup final.

Their opponents put a daunting 190-5 on the board from their 20 overs, largely thanks to good knocks from their top-order batsmen.

Some great death bowling from George Fidell, Oliver Saunders, who took two wickets apiece, and Haydn Bird, who claimed one scalp, did help to peg Dunmow back.

An uphill task was made even tougher by some tight bowling as Stansted Hall & Elsenham fell behind the required run rate early on in their reply.

But brilliant batting from Albie Walton (46no off 22 balls) and Saunders (35ret off 28 balls) gave them something to cheer as they closed on 117-6.

“It was a fantastic achievement for our team to make the final where they did the club proud,” said coach Paul Walton.

“The team largely consists of under-12s with a smattering of under-11s, so the future looks bright for the club.

“Many of these players will be back next season to hopefully go one step further.”
