Eaton Socon’s youngsters took centre stage with impressive performances at the weekend.
The 14-year-old Jacob Watling claimed a maiden five-wicket haul as the second team took on Waresley at home on Saturday, holding them to 180-9.
Watling finished with impressive figures of 5-20 before the heavens opened and the game was drawn.
