Hampshire Disability Cricket prove victorious

Hampshire Disability Cricket carried off the inaugural Bluebird Care Cup after winning every match in 2013.

The county’s hardball squad conquered all opponents in the south west regional competition run by the British Association for Cricketers with Disabilities.

Captain Alex Hammond, who has graduated to the England Physical Disability Squad via the county’s Bluebird Care Elite Player Programme, said: “As a side we worked very well together with both great individual and team performances and we are very proud of what we have achieved. For a young team we played with extreme maturity and gave our all in every game.”

Hammond’s own game has gone from strength to strength in 2013, captaining the England Physical Disability team and making his Southern Electric Premier League debut for Alton. He and Dan Reynaldo have also recently conquered Pen-y-Fan during a squad outward bound weekend in the Brecon Beacons.
