A young Portishead cricketer celebrated his 13th birthday by claiming a hat-trick in the Vitality National Knockout competition.
Casey Daley, who plays for Portishead under-13s and is in the Somerset Pathway Programme, celebrated becoming a teenager in style in the match against YMCA.
In his four overs the youngster would concede just eight runs and grab six wickets, including three ducks, as he hit his treble by removing three YMCA batsmen with successive deliveries in the sunshine at the Lake Grounds.
Daley's feat was recognised by both sets of fans who applauded his efforts.
And despite eventually falling to defeat against the Bristol-based rivals by 20 runs, both teams celebrated Daley's birthday together with a song as fun was had by all who were around.
