Now unbeaten in 11 with 9 wins , and with a surfeit of players , the 2s are launching a real bid for honours this season and are within 1 win of being table toppers. In this game the strength of the victory was denoted by the fact that there were still 19 overs remaining when the total was passed. Former Lowerhouse junior Sam Excell was the mainstay of the Rawtenstall innings with 106 not out having opened the innings.

Ethan Laraway 22*
Oscar Coates 20*
Charlie Bithell 14*
Georgia Clough 12*

After a good batting display the B team contrived to create a panicky climax with some poor later bowling. With 9 needed off the last over and a couple of thick edges bringing the total down to 6 off 3 , cool headed Georgia clough bowled tightly to give a 1 run victory.

Darwen u11 213 -5       LHCC u11 Bears 273-4

Josh Moodie 21
Henri Wilkes 18*

Ben Woodall 14*

An outstanding display and a welcome back to cricket for Josh Moodie following his injury.

Caleb Greenhalgh 2 -1               Dylan du Toit 11*
Kheiro Chir 2-5                            Ben Woodall 11*

Despite bowling an unacceptable 30 wides and no balls the team managed to hit the wickets and score the runs to give them a big win.

LHCC U11 Bears 275-3               Longridge u11 (1) 256 – 7

Caleb Greenhalgh 24                   Josh Moodie 2-14
Ben Woodall 15*
Josh Moodie 15
Emily Herbert 10*

A high scoring game on a good batting track. The standard was set for the batting when Caleb Greenhalgh took 16 off the terrifyingly quick opening bowler’s first over with drives and glances.

Ramsbottom u9 215-5                  LHCC u9 258-1

Aman Singh 14*

Famous last words but in recent games the penny seems to have dropped that not losing wickets is the way to success.
