Congratulations to the U17B’s who won Division 2 South, a fantastic achievement especially as most of the team were playing a year below. Also Sunday 14th September saw them take on High Wycombe in the U17 Bucks final, despite a valiant effort HWCC were too strong. Thank you to everyone who played there part during the season and for all the U17B’s, 2015 will be our year!
Gerrards Cross cricketer Sam Westaway entered the record books last week when he joined an exclusive list of wicket-keepers who have taken ten or more dismissals in a first-class match.
Westaway was playing for Oxford University against Cambridge University in the Varsity match at Fenner’s. He took five catches in each innings to join the likes of Bob Taylor (England), Adam Gilchrist (Australia) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (India).
In the current season only South African, one-day captain AB De Villiers (with eleven) has taken more dismissals.
