STRABANE BEATEN IN U13 CUP FINAL

Strabanes Under 13 cricketers lost out in the final of the Under 13 cup against Coleraine earlier this week.

Chloe Deans and TJ Boyd shared a 6th wicket stand of 30, but a final score of 63 for 5 looked unlikely to be enough.

However, early wickets for Deans, Patton, Roulston and Boyd gave their team hope, but Coleraine eventually won by four wickets with Laverty and Gaston guiding them home.

The young Red Caps had the consolation of Chloe Deans being awarded the Player of the Match accolade from adjudicator David Bradley.
