At 60 for 6 the game looked truly lost but a 70 plus partnership from Matt Walker and the returning Josh Lavin saw the team home. Walker’s all round performance propelled him back into the first team the following day and Lavin played a very mature innings indeed.

Joe Bayliff 40

Danny Starkie 12
With an average age gap of 5 years this was a tough challenge for Lowerhouse mainly under 15 side but manager Stan Heaton was very pleased with the side’s efforts. The main run scoring was done by 2 later order under 15s who played some glorious shots. Danny Starkie and Jimmy Ridehalgh helped both run scorers by sticking with them after a disastrous start (60-6). The side was all out with just an over to go. The bowlers too stuck to their task with Captain Corey Hope marshalling his team well. All the wickets were shared round with Joe Bayliff taking an excellent boundary catch. As more players become available the side will have slightly older heads in it to assist the youngsters.
