Doncaster Town’s under 15s (pictured) have been crowned ECB county champions.

The Town Field youngsters defeated York side Heworth in Sunday’s final to cap a memorable day at Hunslet Nelson cricket ground near Leeds.

Wins against West Bretton, Methley and Barnsley saw Doncaster reach finals day, where they beat Whitley Hall in the last four.

A resilient 34 by opener Jack Harris saw Doncaster post a well below par 71 in the final but an exceptional bowling display, spearheaded by George Cowan (3-8) and James Morris (2-7), saw Heworth collapse to 60 all out.

Doncaster are now four more wins away from reaching the last four in the country.

Coach Stuart Guy said: “The batters won the semi-final and the bowlers won the final.

“This is a brilliant achievement by all the boys who are a solid unit.

“Cricket is a team game and this team deserved it by playing good, hard cricket. It’s fantastic for the club.”

Doncaster last won the county title in this age group back in 2007.
