Merstham Cricket Club's U14s took a fifth win this season yesterday evening, to remain unbeaten this season with two games left.

All matches this season have been friendlies and coach Dilhan Jayamanne is delighted that his youngsters have done so well. "They are all very good players - and that's what I tell them," he said.
On Thursday night, Rowan Smith (21) and Matthew Gray (15 not out) helped Merstham set a total of 83, for visitors Dorking to chase.
Dilhan's son Dinuk took three wickets in two overs but the star of the bowling was Connor T who took a fabulous five wickets in seven balls, including a hat-trick, as Dorking were out for 63.
In previous weeks the team have beaten Salfords, Capel and Merstham Cricket Club's own U13s and U15s. Next week, they play Reigate Priory.
