A team from Bexley went up against seven other squads from across the capital in the London Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championships (LTDCC) last Friday.

The final, which took place at Lord’s Cricket Ground, saw Tower Hamlets crowned winners after a thrilling final against Kingston.

The Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championships provides cricket participation for disabled young people aged 14-25 thanks to the support of the Berkeley Foundation,which was established and supported by the Berkeley Group.

Lord’s Taverners President Sir Michael Parkinson said: “Congratulations to Tower Hamlets on their victory at the LTDCC. It was a fantastic day at Lord’s that really showcased the programme and how it is making an impact across the whole of London.

“Since its launch three years ago, the LTDCC programme has helped thousands of young people improve not only their cricket skills, but also their all-round development and social skills.

“Building on that success, the programme has recently expanded and will continue to grow, enabling the LTDCC to make a difference to thousands more disabled young people across the capital.”

Teams from Lambeth, Newham, Westminster and Hackney also took part.

Plans are in place for all 32 London boroughs to be offering the cricket programme within the next three years.
