Haringey’s Under-13 indoor cricket side narrowly missed out on qualifying for the finals of the London Youth Games at Harrow Leisure Centre on Saturday.
With 32 London boroughs split into eight groups of four, only the top side in each group would advance through to the finals day at Lord’s.
The Haringey side featured players from Crouch End cricket clubs Hornsey, North London and North Middlesex.
Having comprehensively beaten Barnet and Enfield, the final group match was a winner takes all clash with unbeaten Merton, a side containing many players with representative honours.
The Haringey boys saved their worst performance to last though, falling to a narrow defeat in the last over.
