Haddenham's first ever Junior Cricket Tournament got off to a soggy start on Sunday 14th June, but that didn't deter the young players or their supporters. Happily the clouds started to disperse as the first balls were bowled by the young U7s, and by the afternoon some were even seen applying sunscreen!
Haddenham's playing fields were a sea of bright colours as the teams were all given match T-shirts to wear. The U7s and U9s played in the morning, all showing great skills and even better team spirit.
All the youngest players were given medals for participating but for the U9s the competition was real. The host team lost to Dinton in the final play offs, and Dinton took the trophy home.
The barbecue was going all day with delicious burgers provided by Bradmoor Farm. Donations from The West Cornwall Pasty Company, Little Italy and Waitrose supplemented delicious cakes and biscuits baked by the generous parents of the players.
The afternoon saw the U11s take to the field and some fantastic cricket being played. With the Kwik Cricket format being used, and smaller boundaries than usual, there were some high scoring shots and some fierce bowling displays all over the field. At the end of the group stage, Waddesdon met Ivinghoe & Pitstone in the final and after a brilliant game, Waddesdon lifted the trophy while the runners up got the consolation prize of some homemade cup cakes.
The whole event would not have been possible without the support of the volunteers who organised the day, donated the cakes, ran the refreshments stall and brought the children. Massive thanks also go to the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust who made sure that the club could lay on the extra touches that made it such a fabulous day.
