There was plenty of excitement and celebration at Slade Oval on Sunday as the Warwick Bulls made it back to back wins in the Davis Shield for the first time 43 years.
Despite finishing on the top of the competition table and securing a home ground final Lockyer was always going to make it a tough final.
Captain of the Warwick Davis Shield rep side, Dave Walker could not have been more satisfied with the win of his young charges. He praised the efforts of the young side and their commitment and keenness to play Rep cricket saying it really “meant something” to the team who put in an 110percent effort each time they took to the field.
Warwick spinner Sean Bryson was the star of the show cutting a swathe through the Lockyer batting line up. In an outstanding performance with the ball the sixteen year old took six wickets in seven overs conceding only 12 runs. Lockyer was dismissed for just 124 runs.
It took Warwick only 14 overs to chase down the required runs. Bulls’ batmen Mitch McLennan (27) and Ben Heppell (23) were the best performed with the bat. Bryson added to his good day out scoring 14 runs off the bat. Tom Morris remained 16 not out at the end of the game.
Bring on 2019/20 was the chorus from the Warwick Bulls after the game.
