Club News – 13th April 2012
Lowerhouse would like to thank Tracey Johnstone of local NatWest for her and the company’s support for the club’s cricketforce programme. Work was undertaken on the club house, tea room and driveway in readiness for the forthcoming season.
LHCC 1XI 142-all out Ribblesdale Wanderers 99 – all out
Francois Haasbroek 53 Joe Beneduce 4-17
Joe Hawke 29 Francois Haasbroek 3-9
Jonny Whitehead 18 Matt Marquis 2-12
A very useful 40 over innings work out for both teams. The game was a welcome back for professional Haasbroek and former player Joe Hawke.
Additionally there was an excellent debut for 15 year old 2XI keeper Ben Gorton. Jonny Whitehead and Matt Walker took steepling catches in the deep.
Unfortunatley no play was possible in the Surridge Challenge the following day at Baxenden or in the home 2XI friendly v Read. The 1XI are in action at weekend against Farnworth Social Circle away and Read in the Lancs cup at home Sunday . The 2XI will travel to Rishton on Sunday .
Congratulations to Jack Edgar who is in the County under 16 team after some excellent Festival performances last season in addition to his runs for Lowerhouse 2XI
