The Somerset Cricket Board run cricket competitions for state secondary school pupils across the county. Supported by the Chance to Shine charity, the Chance to Compete format is a fast paced game aimed at those who are not regularly playing cricket. Four teams in each competition progressed to finals day after numerous rounds around the county. Overall, the standard of cricket played in both the boys' and girls' competitions was very pleasing and credit must go to all the teams for the spirit in which the games were played. County champions went on to represent Somerset at the regional finals.
The boys competition finals were kindly hosted by Weston-Super-Mare CC (U15s) and Uphill Castle CC (U13s).
U13 boys finalists included Beechan Cliff, Heathfield, Maiden Beech and Wells Blue. Heathfield were crowned county champions winning all three games.
U15 boys finalists included Haygrove, Kingsmead, St Katherines and Wells Blue. St Katherines were crowned county champions after a last game showdown with Haygrove.
The girls competition finals were kindly hosted by Uphill Castle CC.
U13 girls finalists included Hayesfield, Haygrove, Holyrood and Writhlington. Writhlington were crowned county champions winning all three games.
U15s girls finalists included Castle, Hayesfield, Wells Blue and Writhlington. Castle were crowned county champions winning all three games.
Congratulations to all teams who entered this year and we look forward to seeing you all again in next year's competitions.
