The Kent Finals for the Mixed 'Chance to Compete' competition took place this Tuesday (11-07-2017), at the Mote Cricket Club in Maidstone, with both the Under 12s and Under 13s fixtures running side by side.
The seven finalists across both competitions put on a fantastic display and ensured that their fixtures were completed in the best of spirits despite several rain breaks. The three teams competing for the Under 12s Mixed Kent Title were Hayes (Bromley), Herne Bay High and St Mary Magdalene. It was Hayes who were the outright winners, winning both of their matches and Herne Bay the runners up, league table below:
|2||Herne Bay High||2||1||0||1||85||3||28.33||4|
|3||St. Mary Mag.||2||0||0||2||90||8||11.25||2|
Four teams made it through to the Under 13s clash. Sittingbourne Community College, St Anselms (Dartford) and Kemnall Technology College (Sevenoaks) competed impressively but it was the Charles Darwin School (Bromley) who completed the clean sweep of wins, totalling 180 runs throughout the day and taking the County Title, league table below.
|4||Sitt Com Col.||3||0||0||3||124||9||13.78||3|
Kent Cricket Community Officer, Helen Fagg in attendance on the day said 'It's fantastic to see such a good standard of cricket, especially when the conditions were so tough, all the schools just got on with it. Despite having two outright winners of each competition, there was quality all over both pitches, highlighted by the many ‘Champagne Moment’ nominations we had!’
