Upminster’s under-nines ended a fine 2018 season with success in the final of the Met Don Coates Trophy.

Marsha Edinburgh’s team got the better of Buckhurst Hill on Sunday to go one better than last year when they were runners-up.

Batting first, Upminster got up to 305-3 with a net terriers score of 290 and in reply, Hill could only make 305-8, which was a net score of 265.

The entire squad then met at the club house for their end of season presentation to celebrate a memorable year.

Edinburgh said: “I am hugely proud of the whole squad and what they have collectively achieved this year.

“In a situation where they could have easily been overwhelmed, they came together as a team and supported each other. Their conduct was exemplary.

“I have loved watching them grow over the course of the season both as players, and young people.”

Upminster’s final squad: Christian Edinburgh, Thomas Cargill, Joseph Brooks, Joseph Hibbell, Stanley Moore, Max Shepherd, Zane Rooney, Fenton Everingham, Nakul Trivedi, Kai Bannister.
