Cerebral Palsy Sport Table Cricket Nationals 2017
The Sport England funded Table Cricket National Finals Day recently took place at Edgbaston Indoor Cricket Centre, with over 40 players taking part, as 6 Teams from Birmingham, Gloucester, Lincoln, Nottingham and Yorkshire battled it out for this years title. Teams were split into two pools where each team played each other to progress through to the Semi Finals and Play Offs.
Wilson Stuart returned as reigning champions and finished top of their pool and were drawn against new side Brimsham Green School making their first entry into the National Finals. It was a very close game in which Wilson Stuart won by just 14 runs to set up a final with Portland College. Foresight, Kings Mill and Linkage all fared well in their pool games. The 3rd place playoff match was between Brimsham and Kings Mill, in which Kings Mill managed to win.
Portland College and Wilson Stuart set the stage for a great final, with some quality in batting for both sides, but it was Wilson Stuart’s fielding where they were able to frustrate Portland College and hold on for a win to retain their title.
Along with the medals awarded, Brimsham Green picked up the fair play award and Harrison Andrews (Portland College) picked up the player of the tournament for his efforts, and positive and encouraging manor with his team and other players.
