REX Chiles was in terrific form with bat and ball for Great Rissington who held off Rockhampton by 76 runs to win the Gray-Nicolls Gloucestershire Youth League under-15 title play-off at Frocester.
Rex was second top scorer on 34, behind opener Luke Hope who hit 61, in their side’s challenge of 170, Adam Jackson capturing 3-10 from only 10 balls.
And Rex followed up with figures of 5-3 from 6.5 overs as Rockhampton were dismissed for 94, Luke Hope and Gabriel Green also taking two wickets apiece as opener Akshat Krishna top scored on 19.
It was also a day to remember for Knowle (above) who defeated Cheltenham by eight wickets in the under-13 championship play-off.
Opener Nirvaan Jain top scored with an unbeaten 50 in Cheltenham’s 111-7 off 35, Oscar Chudzikiewicz shining with a return of 3-15 from seven.
