They tied their first match with C&R Hawks, before beating Stoke Newington, Derby Cobras and Attock.

That left them second in their group and set up a final rematch with C&R Hawks, with Joe Cracknell maintaining his fine form with the bat to secure victory and both the man of the match and tournament MVP awards.

North Midd clubmate Luke Hollman shone with bat and ball – on his return from England duty at the under-19 World Cup – and Hugh Teesdale kept things tight with the ball, while batting consistently.

Henry Howeld showed athleticisim in the field, as Ollie Morgan grew in stature throughout the tournament, Laurie Pearce bowled well and Louis Hayward held his own against older players.

Ben Waine and Billy Blyghton completed the squad, as Bruce Hayward and Toby Pearce went along to lend support.
