Bath are National Champions
Congratulations to our U13's who today have become National Champions. They travelled to Rugby school to take part in the National Finals and were victorious in their semi final against Whitburn CC from the North East of England.
Skipper Fred Stappard and middle order batsman Sam Simmons both reached 30 and dutifully retired as Bath were bolwed out for 96. In reply Whitburn struggled against some good bowling with the wickets shared evenly they bowled out for 42.
Bath 96 all out (Fred Stappard 30*, Sam Simmons 30*)
Whitburn 42 all out
Won by 54 runs
In the final Bath faced Sonning CC from near to Reading and amassed 132 for 3 with all five batsman reaching 20+ and Jamie Gearing top scoring with 31*. This proved too much for Sonning CC who were bowled out for 66 with Jamie Gearing also starring with the ball picking up 4-11.
