The proximity to The Oval, the guest appearance of Surrey and England giant Neil Tremlett and the presence of some real talent, inspired Rosendale’s cricket team to reach the final last Friday, where they narrowly lost out to Sunnyhill School by 8 runs. The record of played six, won five, lost one was truly fantastic. Dangerous though it is to single out individual performances in what was a superb team effort, James’ effortless batting, hitting nearly as many sixes as Ben Stokes and Alec’s tight, accurate and pacy bowling stand out, but all the team should be truly proud of their performance. Well done and we still have the Surrey CCC hardball tournament to come after half term which will launch us into the Ashes summer.
Team: James, Alec, Jim, Warrick, Lucas, Leo, Haroun, Luca, Josh, Finn
