BROMSGROVE School’s first team were crowned Chesterton Cup champions for the third consecutive year.

Playing to a T20 format at New Road, Bromsgrove beat RGS Worcester by 70 runs thanks to an explosive 38 from Chase Edwards.

A strong batting performance was followed up by a faultless fielding and bowling display, with Alex Wilkinson taking three wickets for nine runs off his four overs, while James Kinder finished with figures of 2-12.

In the final, Bromsgrove faced Monmouth School who had seen off favourites Malvern earlier in the day, but a fine partnership between Jack Bewick and James Taylor rescued a bad start to post a competitive 125.

An outstanding bowling display then allowed Bromsgrove to win a nail-biting game by seven runs.

Director of cricket Dave Fallows said: “We are all delighted with this fantastic performance by the first team but special mentions go to bowlers James Kinder and year ten pupil Neylan Chauhan,  who bowled a fantastic spell at the end of the innings.

“Jack Harding also deserves a mention for outstanding fielding – he saved at least the seven runs winning margin with sliding stops on the boundary edge.”
