Congratulations to our U12 Robins side who claimed gold in the Finchampstead Girls Tournament this afternoon! We had two teams competing today with the U12 Robins competing in the U12 tournament, and our U14 Wolves side competing in the U17 tournament.
Despite missing a number of players to county commitments, our Wolves side gave an extremely good account of themselves. Some of the opposition teams were 4 years older than us, but the Wolves kept going and claimed victory over Shinfield U17s. Despite some brilliant individual performances, the age difference was just too steep in the other games. Overall it was still a very encouraging performance as we finished fourth!
After winning three of the four group stage games, our U12 Robins side progressed to the final against Purley on Thames. The final itself was a thriller, as we scored 25 from the final 2 overs to snatch victory on the last ball! The team as a whole were exceptional to a player and this is a massive credit to all the hard work they've put in at training.

10/05/2019 - Senior teams get off to a flyer!
After a great 2018 campaign which ended in promotion, the Saturday XI got off to a winning start in Division 1 with a 17 run victory away to Shinfield. Fifties for Dan Torry and Dave Wilson helped the lads score 217-5 from our 40 overs. Although it got a little tight, the bowlers held their nerve with Mark Tisshaw's 3-24 being enough to see us home.
The Sunday XI have started their season in hugely impressive fashion, with a 56 run victory over Bramley, followed up by a 9 wicket victory over Theale & Tilehurst! Andy Sutcliffe was the star against Bramley, scoring 70 with the bat and then picking up figures of 3-10 with the ball. Against Theale, Dan Torry (77*) and Sam Laing (66*) were the ones who took centre stage in our excellent run chase!
Not to be outdone, our Midweek XI also kicked off their league campaign with a win against Syngenta. After scoring 129-8 from our 12 overs, 14 year old Seb Atkins starred with the ball dismissing both Syngenta opening batsmen, helping the team secure a 9 run victory!
Great start lads!
