Kieran Tighe 3-30                                              Matt Doughty 43

Rhys Woodworth 23

The loss of both tosses on 2 scorching days proved to be the undoing of the 2nd team youngsters. On Saturday Accrington posted a big score with 14 year old Jack Herbert, the pick of the bowlers. A magnificent start from the ebullient Jonny Whitehead gave the lads a chance but the reply fizzled out in the energy sapping heat.

On Sunday in the Cup, the bowlers restricted Todmorden well but the final wicket stand of 35 proved to be the difference.

With the average age at under 17 this weekend, the boys can be very pleased at how well they played.

Joe Martin 40

Rhys Woodworth 24

Jonny Whitehead 15

Max Howells 10

Bizarrely Longridge managed not to overtake the lads score despite being only 2 wickets down. Needing 15 off 2 overs, a magnificent outfield dive by Joe Martin won the points

Josh Lavin 2-16                                                                 Will Paton 33*

Ismael Khalil 18

Josh Lavin 16

Max Humberstone 15

A spirited performance from the lads who were reeling from Nelson scoring at 11 an over for the first 6 overs. Josh Lavin had a hand in all the wickets with 2 catches and a direct hit run out

Rawtenstall u15 90 – 9                                         LHCC Dolphins 73 -6

Nic Whitehead 4-14                                                Jack Herbert 12

Sean Duckworth 2-8                                                Joe Gray 11

The Rawtenstall bowling proved too much for the first year under 15s

Adam Stubbs 32*

Matt Locke 21

Tom Nicholas 17*

Joey Stein 13

A very strong all round performance with solid batting from all pairs

Another top performance by the under 12s

Shannon Jackson 5-17                                             Rachel Stracey 10*

Despite the outstanding bowling performance from Shannon, the loss of 3 wickets in the last over from a won position, cost the game

Longridge u11 (a) 223-7                                   LHCC U11 Bears 240 -3

Ryan Starkie 2-12                                               Declan Stansfield 11*

Tom Bridge 2-20

A good victory for the boys on a pitch that resembled Goose Green. The wickets were pitched in cracks in the surface. The lads had to be brave with several taking blows from beamers, throws kicking up and full length balls rearing. Suits of armour required for the next visit

LHCC U11 Bears played in a round robin tournament at Read CC and having beaten both Read and Padiham were beaten in the final by Clitheroe.

Tom Bridge was top wicket taker, Christian Butschok – Brain the top run score but the event will be remembered for the magnificent left handed catch by keeper Harry Wheatcroft , described by manager Stan Heaton as the best he had ever seen in under 11 cricket.

The Unlucky U11's at Read CC

LHCC U11 Cubs 287-1                                      Salesbury U11 214-4

Dominic Cheetham 2-6                                        Aaron Morris 11
