Ramsey Under 11s are celebrating becoming county champions after triumphing in a tight Huntingdonshire play-off final which went down to the last ball.

They pipped hosts Huntingdon & District by two runs in the showpiece clash last Saturday.

Ramsey successfully defended their total of 47 with Huntingdon & District finishing on 45 in pursuit.

Jacob Weir of Ramsey was selected as player-of-the-match.

The play-offs involve the champions of the four regionalised divisions. Ramsey topped the North Division standings before beating Central Division winners Yaxley at the semi-final stage.

Huntingdon & District had won Division South A before seeing off Division South B top dogs Eaton Socon in the other semi.
