Trinity cricketers crowned County Champions

Co-curricular | 6th July 2018

Trinity’s U12, U14 and U15 cricket teams have been crowned county champions this week following victories against RGS Guildford, Whitgift and Tiffin Schools.

The teams have now qualified for national competitions next year, concluding a successful term where all of Trinity’s cricket teams have played in finals.

The U12s beat St Georges by 20 runs in the semi-final, with Archie Holman taking 3-18, and then claiming the title against RGS Guildford in the final by 8 wickets, with Luca Baker scoring 52*.

Trinity’s Head of Cricket, Sam Schofield, said: “The team have been great representatives of the School throughout the term with the way they have carried themselves on and off the pitch, and that has been key to the fun they have had, their development as young men and success as a team. Thank you to Mr Kench for all his efforts”.

The U14s fielded in hot temperatures, showing great resolve against a strong Whitgift side. With some superb fielding Whitgift were bowled out for 105, where Trinity then reached the target in 25 overs with Gethin Roberts 35* and Jay Evemy with 40 runs.

Sam added: “This has capped off another great term for the U14s, their third successive year of cup final wins as a team. The team spirit and character they have shown this term has been outstanding and have got the result that they deserve. Thank you to Mr Edwards and Mr Byas for their support”.

The U15 team were superbly lead by captain Malhotra with 46*, winning by 7 wickets, and a fitting end to their time working with coach Mr Beresford-Miller as they move on to senior cricket next year.

This term our U13 cricketers also reached the finals, losing out in a closely fought match to a strong Tiffin side, and the U11s came third in the region.
