COACH Bill Adamson celebrated alongside his impressive March Town Cricket Club Under-11 side after a successful six-a-side tournament at Wimblington.

The young team, made up of Sam Green, Luke Thorne, Doug Furlong, Hana Howson, Brandon Pearce and Geoff Kirby, finished runners-up to Ely in the eight-team competition.

• NEALE-WADE Community College’s Year 7 side came within two runs of winning the County Inter-Cricket finals.

The youngsters fell to a one-run defeat against Witchford in the final after beating Linton and Comberton.

The Year 8 team finished as runners-up, winning three of their four matches.

The Year 7 girls also finished as runners-up, beating Parkside, Perse and Linton before losing narrowly in the final.

Captain Fran Plitsch led from the front with an outstanding performance for the combined Year 8 and 9 girls team. They beat Linton II, Parkside and Cromwell before being defeated by a strong Linton first team.

The school’s young cricketers are pictured at the tournament, which was held at Fenners, the home of Cambridge University Cricket Club.
