Derbyshire Players represent England in World Cup

indoor england u13

A group of Derbyshire Players have taken part in the Indoor World Cup in New Zealand over the last two weeks. Mitchell Wagstaff, Josh Glover, Aaron Brown, Matt Myers, Alex Ward, Tom Kent-Smith, Oliver Flindall and Archie Stewart have all competed for England. The Under 13s made it to the semi-finals but lost to the hosts by 1 run. Here is a report by Tom Kent-Smith about his experience.

"Being asked to play in the World Series Indoor Cricket Tournament for England in Christchurch New Zealand has been an amazing experience, one I’ll never forget. It’s the first time England have entered junior teams so we didn’t know what to expect. I’ve realised it’s big over here and I think we’ve learnt so much watching the other teams and playing. We have played 11 games playing NZ (2 teams) South Africa, Australia and Singapore in a league tournament and got through to the semis, just missing the final by one run! Indoor cricket is fast, quick and exciting. We have all made some great friends. Loved every minute."
