South Devon come out on top at U10 cricket festival

Bideford Cricket Club hosted an under 10s festival for all of the Devon Districts, with the county’s elite players converging on Westward Ho! for an early 10.30am start on Bank Holiday Monday.

North played South and East played West with the winners to face each other in the final. The losers fought it out for third and fourth place.

The South beat the North while East defeated West in the morning games, as the youngsters played 20 overs pairs cricket.

After lunch the North defeated the West for the second time in two days, while a strong South came out victors against the other winners of the morning round, the East.

Afterwards the players were presented with commemorative medals by Bideford CC’s clubman of the year Ike Aviston.

The South were overall winners on the day, but all of the players enjoyed the day as the rain held off long enough to play the matches. Things are set up nicely for next weekend, when the districts play each other again.
