Under 17 2014 Finalists

Middlesbrough posted 131 after 15 overs thanks to 71 from Aaron Lawson which proved to be too good on the day.

Hartlepool lost early wickets and as the run rate required increased the later batsmen had to take chances if they were to retrieve the game.

Middlesbrough were comfortable winners in the end but great credit to James Piper and his team for reaching the final.
