The result from the U10 Hardball Final was:

Radlett 286-5

Watford Town 229-9


A repeat of the 2016 HJL final for this age group with both Watford Town and Radlett going through the season unbeaten coming into the final. Radlett overcame Harpenden in the first semi final of the day and Watford narrowly beat Old Albanians in the other semi final. Having won the toss Radlett elected to bat and, after an initial wobble in the first over, Tom Mitchell and Harry Bee compiled an excellent, nerve settling 30 run partnership.  Good bowling restricted the next two pairs but again the last pair of Rhys Kanbi and Sachin Thakrar got Radlett to an above par score with a really level headed 32 run partnership. A total of 286 was always going to be difficult for a Watford team which included a couple of talented U9 boys and so it proved with wickets tumbling regularly and, despite the valiant attempts of the last pair of Krishan Patel and Amman, Watford finished on 229.  Edward Browne was the pick of a very good bowling and fielding performance for Radlett, picking up 3 wickets.
