U9s - New Forest Champions!

Having already secured the NFJCA South league title, Sway U9s made the short trip to Bashley to play their counterparts from the North section, OT & Romsey to see who would be crowned champions of the New Forest.

OTs/Romsey OTs/Romsey batted first on a beautiful Sunday morning and although they accumulated runs steadily their progress was restricted by the outstanding fielding and catching of the Sway youngsters with Theo Mitchell producing a fine run out with a direct hit and good catches from Connor Treacey and Olly Marshall. Jack Sluman hit consecetive boundaries for OTs but they were further contained by accurate bowling from Sway Captain Noah Lane-Glass and Tom O'Callaghan finishing with a total of 236 for 9wkts.

Sway got off to solid start with Olly Marshall and Sebbie Allies and were always in control of the run chase batting sensibly and not losing wickets against some accurate and testing bowling. Connor Treacey, Callan Wallis, Noah Lane-Glass and Oscar Anderson were able to bat out the final overs with Sway well ahead. finishing comfortable winners on 274 for 3 wickets.
