DARTON College's cricket team is celebrating victory after being crowned Yorkshire champions.

The year seven and eight cricket team won the Yorkshire Indoor Cricket final held last month at Headingley.

Captain George Sharp led James Cosgrove, David Harper, Boeta Beukes, Lewis O'Connor, Owen Dixon, Ethan Shillito, Lewis Bray and Ellis Tolson against a team from Goole to be named champions.

A spokeswoman for the Ballfield Lane-based school said the final was 'a foregone conclusion' as Darton's teamwork and cricket skills shone through.

"They fielded first and restricted the team from Goole to a very low runs total due to their brilliant fielding and bowling skills," she said.

"It was then their time to bat and after a nervous start they soon piled on the pressure and smashed the runs total set, seeing Darton College crowned Yorkshire champions."
