The Downs Under 11 cricketers have have got their season off to a flying start by becoming this year's Champions of the Malvern College 8Eight tournament - winning the title for the first time.

The young players were topping the table after four pool games and were through to the semi-final vs Abberley Hall at the event on May 13.

A short break saw them batting again and the boys kept going with a solid innings posting Abberley a tall order. Some tight bowling was backed up by excellent fielding.

The final saw the team pitted against The Elms. Another great start saw a good score set. The bowlers were again on target and supported brilliantly by the fielders.There were nine run outs in the day - a true reflection of the excellent team effort.

This is the first time they have been Champions of the Malvern College 8Eight competition. It was a fabulous day, superbly supported by the parents and played in the very best of spirits.
