KESGRAVE and Worlingworth took part in the final of the Copleston Centre Under-13 League final at Chantry Park. Kesgrave reached the final by beating Bury St Edmunds in the semi-final while Worlingworth overcame Copdock.

Kesgrave, who had beaten Bury St Edmunds in the semi-final, won the toss and elected to bat. After a slow start, they got going and posted a total of 104 for Worlingworth to chase.

Michael Baker played a magnificent innings scoring 57 runs.

Worlingworth, who beat Copdock in the last round, came under pressure immediately due to some tight bowling by the Kesgrave Worne twins, Michael and Stephen, supported by excellent fielding.
