By Connor Thompson


Cricket-loving brothers are celebrating after winning a cup final.

Kieran and Callum Owen, of Balderton, represented Derbyshire in the Disabled Super 9s Cricket Cup final, which was played at Kidderminster.

Kieran said: “Yorkshire set us a target of 195 to win from 35 overs, and in reply at one stage, we were 13 for four, but we turned it around and won by four wickets with less than two overs remaining.”

The 23-year-old admitted he didn’t have his best game having opened the batting and falling in the third over for one.

However, he said he fielded well earlier in the game and had contributed many runs throughout in the season.

“Callum fielded remarkably well, but didn’t get a bowl and was due to bat later but wasn’t needed. He is usually the captain of the development squad, but was promoted for this game,” said Kieran.

Callum, 21, will join his older brother on Sunday, in Derbyshire’s final game of the season.
