Throw your caps in the air to celebrate the Ventnor under-16’s team, who not only won the NatWest Under-16 indoor cricket league, but also went on to win championship of the same at the Rose Bowl back on Sunday 1st April (we didn’t get to hear about it at the time, see below).
Now, what we know about cricket can be written on the top corner of a postage stamp, but the write-up on this site tells us that Ventnor “held their nerve in a thrilling last-ball semi-final win over Havant, whose set an imposing 150-run target.”
The score in the finals against New Forest were
Ventnor 129-4 (Woodhouse 22, Briggs 19) New Forest 118-5 (Khan 32, Beddoes 24, Briggs 2-28). Ventnor won by 11 runs.
Another reason to be proud of Ventnor.
(We’ve just noticed this, after reading a comment on the Forum and doing a search. Any future success the team has, we’d be happy to put up on the blog too, we just need someone to tell us about it!)
