The Avon House Cricket team went out to the Bancroft’s festival on Wednesday 6th June to compete in the Annual 6 a-side competition. With the sun shining it was a perfect day for cricket. The boys had a tough group with Chigwell A, Bishop Stortford A and Bancrofts C team. Throughout the group stage the team put in enormous effort with some excellent bowling on show, especially Mikail our player of the tournament.
The boys qualified for the shield competition where we came up against St Aubyn’s A team. St Aubyns set us a total of 27 runs to chase. Kabir and Tarun built a strong partnership and hit the winning runs. In the final we came up against Bancroft’s. Again it was another close game but with some accurate bowling from Muhammad in the last over we kept the runs down.
The boys were crowned champions of the shield and look to continue to build on their progress. Well done to the boys who competed; Kabir (Captain) Adam (Wk) Mikail, Brandon, George, Tarun, Muhammad and Zaki.
