Stony Stratford U12s got their hands on some silverware on Sunday after beating Great Kingshill in the final of the Bucks Junior League Cup.

On a warm cloudy day at Beaconsfield Cricket Club, Stony captain Torin Little won the toss and elected to field.

Great Kingshill posted a respectable 108-3 from their 20 overs, with wickets proving hard to come by.

Michael Wells and Joseph Sellers-West each took a wicket, the former assisted with an outstanding catch from Alex Gomersall fielding at silly mid-on.

The remaining wicket to fall came from a sharp run out by Torin Little.

Stony’s response was led by openers Jake Vickers and Alex Gomersall (15) who put on 34 until Alex was caught at deep fine leg for 15.

Wells and Little pushed the score along to 81 before Wells skied a catch to square leg for 17.

Little retired on 32 not out with the scores level and with nine balls to go Arun Short hit the winning runs with a four to third man boundary.

The result completes a fantastic year for the squad and the club.

It’s the first time a Stony junior side has ever been crowned champions of Buckinghamshire and this in a year when the side won all 12 of their competitive games.

While the 11 on Sunday celebrated, the other members of the squad who didn’t play in the final include: Anish Kumar, Josh Bennett, Philip Howells, Alex Pembery, Adam Humphries, James Fearn and Taylor Dart.
