Youth Club wasn’t able to gain momentum in partnerships and fell 50 runs short as the Combine claimed the victory.
Cocks said it was a great result for the club.
“We had a mix of both A and B Grade players and about 15 altogether,” he said.
“It’s great for the younger guys to get a game in the faster-paced style of cricket and enjoyable to the more aggressive type of cricketers.”
“It’s always a great experience for our younger players to get as many games as they can on the turf wicket.”
Association president David Turner said he was happy with the competition this year and it was always a great event.
Turner said it was disappointing more clubs didn’t get behind the competition and enter teams.
“We need to run the competition so clubs can get the chance to get to the next step,” he said.
“Clubs have the opportunity to go to Warrnambool to the Sungold Cup to win a couple of thousand dollars in prize money or to go to Cricket Willow in Daylesford.
“The winner gets to choose and the runners-up get to go to the other one.”
