Andrew Lawson, Head Coach, said:

As Head Coach I’m proud of the way the lads played throughout the competition as a team. They played some outstanding cricket in all departments; batting, bowling and fielding. They finished off the final yesterday with a complete dominant and convincing performance with a win against a very strong Loughborough side. Well played and well deserved. Up the Yellows.
