Dubai / Abu Dhabi Trials

This year’s ARCH cricket tournaments in Dubai and the UAE saw 18 teams compete across 3 tournaments at 10 beautiful venues to produce 2019’s Tournament Champions.

Congratulations go to Cheltenham College 1st XIs who claimed the ARCH Trophy and to Gillespie Academy from Adelaide who took the U15 ARCH Cup.

And our thanks to everyone who contributed to the special atmosphere that characterises ARCH. Our short tournament video captures something of the spirit of this unique tournament.

Gillespie Academy from Adelaide are quoted as saying “We wanted to test ourselves against some of England’s best cricketing schools as well as the opposition from Dubai and Abu Dhabi.”

This picture says it all. Who will claim the U15 Cup next year?
