Hunts Under 11s collected one victory during their recent tour to the Royal Hospital School at Holbrook, in Suffolk.

Jairus Charles hit an unbeaten 45 and spinner Alex Spragg claimed 4-14 in a five-wicket success against North Essex – Hunts easing past their opponents’ offering of 108-5.

Hunts were beaten by Oxfordshire by 95 runs in their only other completed game.

Divyeash Vaseeharan took 2-4 as Oxfordshire reached 137-9 before skittling Hunts for just 42.

Clashes against London Schools and Northumberland were both halted by rain with Luke Ashwell unbeaten on 31 in the latter Twenty20 contest as Hunts reached 97-5 before the heavens opened.
