Plenty of action for our U18s County Age Group & Development sides yesterday, which saw some high-class performances to kick start the 2022 season! Our U18s County Age Group started their ECB T20 Cup campaign against Worcestershire & Cricket Wales whilst our Development side played Somerset, here is how they got on.

U18s CAG vs Worcestershire (ECB T20 Cup) @ Hawkesbury CC

A comprehensive 8 wicket win saw Gloucestershire win their first match of the ECB T20 Cup with a resounding performance against Worcestershire. Bowling first, all of our bowlers chipped in with wickets to bowl out Worcestershire for 85 inside 19 overs however a special mention to Aaron Davies who took 2 for 9 off 3 overs to really squeeze the pressure onto the opposition.

In reply, Stanley Brown (41*) & skipper Joe Phillips (39*) led the way in the run chase, scoring freely to help chase down the target in 11.1 overs.
