Congratulations go to Chosen Hill U16 and Hartpury College U19 teams who won their respective age groups at the Regional Schools tournament on Saturday 25th January, held at Sir David English Centre, Bournemouth.
The event was contested by the best 14 teams representing their counties in each age group across the region and they faced strong opposition throughout the day. Weather fears for the outdoor event were unfounded and held good for the day's play.
Both squads now go through to the National finals to be held at Whitby High School on Merseyside on Saturday 15th March 2014.
Dean Close team nearly made it a Gloucestershire clean sweep at U19 level but were drawn against Hartpury in their semi-final. They went on to finish 3rd overall by beating Exeter College in the 3rd/4th play-off. Stroud High School U14 team finsihed a creditable 4th place, losing out in the 3rd/4th play-offs in their age group to Wellsway School from Avon.
Farmor's School also represented Gloucestershire at both U14 and U16 age groups.
Thanks go to all the umpires from the county - Gina Pearce, James Thomas, Michelle Easterbrook, Kirsty Hughes, Tracie Hull and Jo Baker, and to their scorers and supporters.
