"Up against the defending champions in the semi-final Exeter got off to the worst start losing 2 wickets in the first over," said Mr Ross.

"However, a steady re-build put a total of 93 runs to defend on a bowler's pitch. The U13s brought a huge energy to the field and limited their opponents at every turn, but with 71 runs on the board and only 4 wickets down it looked like this may be it.

"Enter Tom Russell who slowed the run rate and built pressure as the batting tail ceased to wag with 6 wickets falling for just 15 runs and allowing Exeter to complete the Great Escape by 7 runs and make it to the final.

"Having learnt from the first game, a more polished batting performance followed with captain James Tyler causing most of the damage and supported throughout by others, 19 and 18 runs for McCarthy and Russell respectively.

"Once again the work in the field proved to be decisive. The positioning, bravery and accuracy of the fielding, alongside some tight bowling applied pressure and brought a steady flow of wickets.

The end came quickly and the U13s went one better from last year where they were losing finalists to secure the County Champions title, alongside a man of the match performance for captain James Tyler.

"This was an excellent performance by all involved and just reward for the progression shown this year over the season to remain unbeaten thus far."
