Both the U12 and U14 cricket teams at Northgate High School, Dereham, won their league play-off finals last week.

The U12 team (pictured) defeated Taverham High School by 12 runs.

Northgate batted first and scored 130-5 of 20 overs with Jason Reynolds scoring 75.

This was a good total to set in 20 overs and Taverham came close. When the final over arrived they needed 15 but could only manage three. A very good game to mark a successful season for the U12 team who also reached the semi finals of the County Cup and were runners-up in the county indoor tournament.
