Division 2A was won by Alrewas, while Whittington won Division 2B.

Tamworth's attack functioned well in the clash – with was a double header of cup final and league meeting – with Ryan Hughes taking 2-2 in his three overs.

After the turnaround, Mitchell Woakes made light of a couple of wickets falling, scoring 30 before he was forced to retire by league rules.

Aleks Edgar also chipped in with 15 as Ticknall's bowlers struggled to contain the town outfit.

They got home with almost four overs to spare to complete the double in a cracking season for the club at youth level.
