SNCC Academy win the 2020 Banks Cup Final

20th Apr 2021

Congrats to The South North CC Academy (3rd XI) on their 2020 Banks Cup Final win!


Please see the captains report below and congrats to a side that showed amazing team spirit and encompassed a good mix of youth and experience.


Captains Report:


“We were put in to bat by Washington, and started fairly well with some explosive boundary hitting from Sadiq, before he fell for 21. At 38-2 Jan joined TMW, who together put on a very well made 52 for the 3rd wicket. Tristan with 42 and Jan 22. After both were dismissed, the innings seemed to be slowing to a slightly worrying end. Some much needed hitting from Ben Sid (34) who was very well supported by Sam Ewart (12) and P Hatcher (9*) got us up to a decent total of 163-6 from our 35 overs. 


Hatcher struck in the first over of Washington's reply. However, the visiting side got themselves nicely along to 60-3, and seemed in a good position after 15 overs. Junior Alan Roskilly made the breakthrough, taking 3 important wickets, including that of Washington danger-man Hebron for 28. From then on it was all about veteran Dave Cragg, who swept aside the rest of the batting line-up, reducing Washington from 60-3 to 69 all out. Dave finished with a return of 5-12, and quite rightly took home the Man of the Match award. 


A fantastic win for the side, and great to finish off what was a very enjoyable 2020 covid-hit campaign.” Owens Hollins
