Throughout the league, Ilford have toiled and put in amazing displays of batting, bowling and fielding.

Murali Nair and Sajid Khan, joint managers, said: “The success of the under-11s has been down to the commitment the boys have been putting into their fielding, which has been a key focus for the under-11s for the past three years.

“We have a long way to go and the focus and commitment of not just the boys but the parents and the coaches plays a huge part in ensuring they attend all the training.

“It’s a great moment for the boys, parents and Ilford Cricket Club. This is the start of the journey for these boys who are all vying to be the next Ben Stokes!”
