The U12s have yet to play a home game this season but have made a good start on the road recording wins against both big local rivals Suffolk and Norfolk, and in London against Middlesex Schools.  This Sunday saw them away at first-class country, Leicestershire, where they came up just short in the run chase. The U13s have also made a positive start to the season with wins against Huntingdonshire, Norfolk and Lincolnshire, but also struggled last weekend against the first-class county opposition of Middlesex.

Both teams have a number of fixtures throughout the summer as well as tours to Ipswich and Taunton where they will play against a mix of both UK and international teams.
