The U13 North Essex District Cricket Board (NEDCB) Cricket Team have had their best year so far.

Not only were they unbeaten, which resulted in them winning the 40 Over District Championship but they also won the T20 Championship, which makes them the most successful NEDCB U13’s side ever.

In addition, they had the exciting opportunity to go on tour to the Netherlands in July, which was the first time a district team from Essex had been on tour to this country.

The team was invited as the Netherlands are keen to play against quality teams to help drive improvements in Dutch cricket. So successful was the tour that an invitation has already been extended for 2016.

Paul Lees (Coach / Team Manager, said “This has been an amazing year for the team and what a great experience the Netherlands tour has been. I’d like to thank on behalf of the North Essex District Cricket Board and our sponsors WRS Insurance and Jameson’s Chartered Accountants which enabled the tour to take place.”

Chris Chapman, WRS Director commented, “We were delighted to help support the NEDCB U13 team on their successful tour and enable the young people to further develop their own cricketing skills and broaden their cultural knowledge as well as help the Dutch improve their cricketing abilities.”
