Seaton Cricket Club held its awards evening at which the tremendous success and improvements made by the Colts' players were highlighted by coach Peter Anderson. A large number of Seaton's colts players and their parents turned out to celebrate their young members' achievements this year, which saw them being placed third (under-11s) and third (under-13s) in the Bradleys East Devon Youth Cricket League.This was a huge improvement on past seasons. Seaton has seen an increase in Colts membership during the season, especially at the under-11 age group. The under-13 age group came third in their East Division league and this was achieved with the inclusion of a number of under age players to make up the numbers.Seaton CC Colts' section has been sponsored this season by Free Foresters CC and Dean and Dyball Construction whose name they carry on their cricket clothing.
