Quins 5 won by eight wickets.

The first team had a relatively unsuccessful league season ending up eighth in the 10 team stream Challenge league.

The third, fourth, fifth, sixth and U11s, performed admirably and the club had an overall successful season.

There is a winter league for really competitive players during April and May, out of the area and two more informal one day competitions during the next two Sundays.

The club is seeking a willing person, especially a parent, who would manage an U13 team during the upcoming 2014/2015 season. No cricket skills are required, as the club could provide a coach for this age group.

The next event is the Annual General Meeting to be held during May.
