Chesterton Cup joy for Bromsgrove School

Craig Gibbons 25th May, 2018

BROMSGROVE School lifted the Chesterton Cup at Worcestershire’s New Road ground after an impressive bowling display last Sunday.

The discipline of the bowling unit has been a major strength this season, and it reached new heights during the cup final.

With Malvern College 42-0 off four overs, it was not looking good for Bromsgrove.

However, calm captaincy and great skill levels with the ball meant the boys restricted a talented Malvern team to 126 from their 20 overs.

Tom Maidment, who took 5-24, was pick of the bowlers while last-minute stand-in Olly Davidson a stunning one-handed catch.

Fahd Janjua showed his class with the bat in reply, elegantly making his way to 90 not out off 58 balls.

Bromsgrove won by seven wickets with 15 balls to spare.

In the semi-final win against King’s Worcester, Dan Meredith lead the way with 4-15 and Alex Hinkley made 32 off 25 balls.

Dave Fallows, director of cricket at Bromsgrove School, said “This was a fantastic opportunity for the boys to play at a first class ground, experiencing all that goes with it, not to mention it being one of the most picturesque grounds in the country.”
