Bears Win League Title

U13 League Winners 2017

Congratulations to Bapchild’s U13 Bears who clinched the League Title at the weekend

On a warm August Sunday the Bears turned up at Upchurch to play the 10th and final game of their 2017 League campaign having been unbeaten in the previous nine games. Having beaten Upchurch earlier in the season and carrying a lead of 9 points, the team needed just two points to retain the league trophy…..however, the whole team were determined to finish the league unbeaten. With a mature and measured innings from Christian Roberts (35 retired) and with support from Luca Elda, big hitting Alex Lynch & Oscar Hird, and with Darcy and Finn Carter chipping in with 19 off 2 overs, the Bears reached 114 runs from their allotted overs against a very good bowling attack.

After a great opening over by vice-captain Lucy Wakelen with a double wicket maiden, the other bowlers including Captain Ben Dutnall and Freddie Corner plied their trade admirably. Great keeping by Daniel Covey and exceptional fielding from Simeon Laslett and great catches and run out by Darcey, Finn and Chritian, the Bears were in control. Upchurch needed to pull something special out of the hat and their number 5 R Delpost responded hitting a quick fire 34 and singly handed put Upchurch in a position where they required 10 runs off the last over to win. Skipper Ben Dutnall asked Darcy to bowl the last over and with guile and pace off the ball, the Upchurch batsmen could only muster singles off of the first 4 deliveries and with a wicket falling on the next ball, 6 to win off the last ball proved to beyond Upchurch and the Bapchild Bears ran out deserved winners and Champions of 2017. A big THANK YOU to all those players and parents who all played and supported the team throughout the season

Congratulations to coach Simon Cosstick and all the squad who played throughout the whole campaign with the right spirit and have been rewarded for all their fine efforts. Thanks also to all the parents, families and friends for their wonderful support.

Well done the club is very proud of your fantastic achievement
