Winchester teenager George O'Connor played a major role with the ball as Sunbury won the prestigious ECB Surrey Championship title on the final day of the season.

They chased down a daunting Guildford total of 283-8 to win by three wickets with 11 balls to spare, Hilton College schooled Colby Dyer smacking eight sixes in a blistering century.

O'Connor spent his formative years at Radley College, playing second team cricket for St Cross Symondians during the school holidays, but after a successful winter at the Darren Lehmann Academy in Adelaide, decided to try his luck at Sunbury, where he opened the bowling regularly.

It was a move that paid handsome dividends for the 19-year old pace bowler, who was Sunbury's joint leading wicket taker, alongside the Surrey spinner Amar Virdi, each with 28 victims.

O'Connor's haul included a career-best 7-30 against Ashtead and five-wicket returns against 2022 champions Wimbledon and Weybridge. He is shortly to return for a second winter season in Adelaide.
