Another Festival trophy for the Under 10 boys

Under 10s undefeated in Taunton

The under 10 boys completed a successful season with a huge victory against Lancashire and became winners of the Festival trophy for the second successive year. There was rarely any doubt that Berkshire would seal victory against a strong Lancashire team.

Put into bat, Berkshire soon settled comfortably against the potentially strong opening attack. Seb Bourne (15) and Jensen Kelsey (18) put on 26 in the first 7 overs and after the surprise early dismissal of Bailey Niblett the reliable upper middle order of James Isbell, Connor Lamsdale and Alfie Agar moved the score comfortably on to 171 for 5 after 32 overs. There were impressive stands of 45 ( Jimbo and Connor) and 80 (Connor and Alfie) with Jimbo eventually out for 38 and Alfie unfortunately run out for 29. This brought Connor and Sam Smith together for a whirlwind stand of 83 in 10 overs before Sam's unlucky run out for 23 on 255 for 7. The last three overs took the score on to 271, one of the highest under 10 scores in the history of the Festival.

Faced with the daunting task of scoring at more than 6 an over, Lancashire were never really in the hunt. Matthew Wood and Rocky Flintoff batted well, taking the score to 98 before Matthew's dismissal in the 34th over, but Lancs were never up with the clock and with Rocky's departure for 53 at 124 there seemed little hope for the red rose county to achieve the points awarded for a losing draw. Spinners Max Meader (2 for 14 in 7 overs) and Charlie Hunt (2 for 21 in 7) kept the pressure on and Lancashire crawled to 139 for 5 at the end of their 45 overs.

Overall, a tremendous effort by Berkshire to win the competition with victories in all their matches, including warm up games. Coach Jon Stewart, ably helped by his assistant Lewis Sharp, ensured that the Berkshire boys were highly motivated and maintained high levels of skill and commitment throughout the season, to end with 8 victories in 10 inter county matches as well as the coveted Taunton trophy.
