North Devon Rounders Tournament

13th June 2017
Yesterday saw the Bratton Fleming Rounders team travel to Torrington for the North Devon Final. In pool 1 they had four matches to play against Monkleigh, Woolsery, Holywell and Ilfracombe Juniors. Bratton did not disappoint! After comfortably winning all four matches they were through to the quarter finals and were set to play Landkey. Bratton batted first and lost three key players early on. However they re grouped and Charlie and Aiden scored some lovely half and whole rounders. Next it was their turn to field and they knew that they had to field well in order to win. Bratton did not disappoint! They won and were through to the semi finals! The next match was Bratton versus Yeo Valley and having to beat Yeo Valley in the previous tournament to win they knew they would have to concentrate! Bratton had also acquired a new fan club as Holywell and Landkey came to support them! After yet another amazing match they were triumphant AGAIN and they were in the FINAL against Woolsery. The final was definitely the hardest match there was a lot at stake and everyone was tired both mentally and physically. It was a close call but they won 6 rounders to 5!
Bratton are off to PLYMOUTH to represent NORTH DEVON next Thursday and they cannot wait! Good luck Bratton and enjoy yourselves!
