Colts are cricket kings


Share post:

THE COLTS are St Thomas cricket champions for the second straight year.

Set up by an unbeaten 95 from Aaron Jones, Steve’s Building Works Welchman Hall Colts defeated Welches by 21 runs in a high-scoring One-day cricket final on Thursday, National Heroes Day.

Playing at their cosy home ground next to Holy Innocents’ school and church, Welchman Hall Colts flayed the Welches’ bowling in the latter stages of their innings to amass a healthy 275 for four off 27 overs.

But on a day in which the teams combined for 34 sixes, Welches made a spirited victory bid but lost wickets regularly at critical stages without building any significant partnerships and were finally dismissed for 244 in 26 overs.
