Overton twins drop by to present awards at North Devon youth league evening
A number of talented youngsters were recognised for their achievements at the North Devon Youth Cricket League and District presentations.
Hosted by the committee, David Gidney, Andy Davies, Mark Overton and Jan Witheridge, the event celebrates the achievements of the junior sections of North Devon cricket clubs, as well as the district programme which produces North Devon representative teams. Players and the fantastic job done by volunteer coaches and managers were celebrated.
The youngsters had a special surprise when Somerset stars Jamie and Craig Overton attended to present the prizes. They signed caps and a number of shirts donated by members of the committee as prizes.
