The West Dorset Youth Indoor League was badly affected by the resent weather with the final games in the under 12's being cancelled two weeks on the trot.  With the competition reaching its climax all teams were awarded a point and the games void.

The League, in its second year at The Osprey Centre, Portland has proven to be highly competitive and produced cricket of the highest standard week after week.

Nigel Williams Manager at the Osprey Centre had nothing but praise for all the youngsters who have taken part. 

"Week in week out these young cricketers have produced outstanding cricket and sportsmanship ,it has been a pleasure for the Centre to once again host the competition. The supporters, mums and dads, coaches and all involved with each and every club deserve a huge vote of thanks for the efforts and support in producing teams with such a talent for the game. I would like to add my personal thanks to the League organisers Aarron Riley and Grant Neven  for all their hard work and commitment."

Grant (West Dorset under14/15 coach) added,  "all the youngsters have shown great enthusiasm and commitment, their skills levels in all aspects of the game have been enhanced and their sportsmanship has been second to none.  It has been a pleasure to witness so much good cricket and with the youngsters playing regularly throughout the year can only benefit the District and the players respective clubs - cricket in the West has a bright future.  Finally the coaches and managers from each and every club deserve a huge thank you from all - well done all."
