I have to say that I am impressed with many of the young players you have in the U17 & U15 teams.
I watched much of the U17 game at Cheltenham, and then Umpired the 2 day U17 game at Newent and the U15 Cup semi final at Lechlade played yesterday. I did both games with Darrrel Turl and we both agree that things look good for the future of Glos cricket and that some of the youngsters we officiated will be good prospects to proceed into County cricket.
It was especially pleasing to see all games played by players who played with a smile on their faces, with respect to opponents but who also played the game ‘hard and fair’ – They were all a credit to the county and their coaches who deserve credit for their teams.
