CCCA Central Coast Under 12's Greater Hunter Area Champions
The Central Coast has won the inaugural 2019-20 Greater Hunter Under 12 Representative Competition.
Central Coast were the strong favourites in the final, only dropping one match (last week) during the season proper, which just happened to be against their Hunter Valley opponents today.
Hunter Valley won the toss and batted. They got the worst start possible, to be in deep trouble at 8/26 . A minor recovery saw Hunter Valley total 56 in the 33rd over. Central Coast lost an early wicket but a great 2nd wicket partnership from Raj Sharma (21 no) & Koby Smith (31 no) saw Central Coast cruise to victory.
A brief Presentation followed and medallions and shields were presented to the Central Coast Team. Koby Smith was awarded the Player of the Competition after very strong performances with the bat and the WK gloves.
