Finchy’s Ton helps Second team romp on!

It has been a weekend of mixed fortunes for the Senior Teams.

We trialed our new PitchVision technology to stream the Saturday Third Eleven match and the home first team game. You can watch them below:

The Third Eleven played on Monday and lost to Ramsbottom. We are having a few technical issues with this scorecard and it will be uploaded in full later this week.

The First team took a blow by being beaten by Norden on Sunday. Norden batted first making 195 for 8 from their 50 overs. Francios led the wickets with 3, Ocki ad Joe Hawke took 3 a piece. In reply, Lowerhouse built steady away but lacked real momentum in the innings, with a couple of key decisions not going their way. Paddy Martin made 50 (passing 2000 league runs) and Ocki got 34. House fell 13 short. Full scorecard here

We were also visited by The Guardian Newspaper on Sunday, who are doing a write up on grass roots cricket – look out for that in the run up to the World Cup.

The Second Team made it 3 out of 3 with Jon Finch making an unbeaten century at Littleborough. House made 235 for 3 off their 45 overs. Finch made 116* off 131 balls. Ethan Laraway also scored 65*. Littleborough only managed 176 for 3 in reply. Full scorecard here

The Third team were beaten on Monday by Rawtenstall at home. Rawtenstall made 215 for 3 from their 40, we were 159 for 8 in reply. Full scorecard here
