Yorkshire and Northamptonshire shared the honours in the ECB's U13 County Cup for 2009 after rain got the better of proceedings at Oakham.

The Finals Festival took place at Oakham School in Rutland on August 3/4, and welcomed the four teams battling it out to try and win this year's competition: Middlesex, Surrey, Northamptonshire and Yorkshire.

Unfortunately the weather had a very big hand to play in the competition and on the Tuesday only 11 overs were possible in total in the two games.

This meant that after consultation with the team managers they decided that they wanted to play the semi-finals and forego the Final.

As a result the semis were played on the following day and, as winners of those matches, Yorkshire and Northamptonshire shared the trophy.

Surrey made 159 for five in 35 overs, but were overhauled by Northants, who reached 160 for four in 32.2 overs in reply.
