Hyndburn District U11 153 for 6 – Burnley District u11 – 149-5

The District under 11s will be kicking themselves after this narrow defeat, falling just short in the runs chase.
After an opening stand of 43 by Singh (under 10) and Zaeem Shah (under 9) County player Qasim Shah boosted the run chase with an aggressive 51 retired. Later stroke play by the remaining batsmen gave Hyndburn a real scare but the damage had been done in the first half.

Although the bowling was decent especially from under 9 Jack Spence – 5-0-13-0, far too many short balls were delivered and duly punished. The fielding was none too bright either with the exception of a steepling catch by Harry Tomlinson. Several routine catches were spilled and a number of run outs missed by poor gathering and weary or reckless throws.
Factor in 3 short runs and this defeat was self-inflicted. This was a great shame as this is a talented squad with 6 able to play again next season – 2 of whom are under 9.

After a disappointing first match defeat , Burnley were boosted by the return of talisman Joseph Halstead who had missed the first game through the utterly ludicrous situation of having g to attend a county trial on the same day as district cricket .

It was a good all round bowling performance with the 9 bowlers restricting Lancaster after Halstead and Khan had tied the openers up.

Halstead’s innings contained 12 fours and 3 sixes and wrapped the game up with 10 overs to spare. Laraway and Molloy providing fine support

Scott Hope 2-41 Dec Bailey 52
Josh Lavin 31
Lewis Marsden 24

The lads progressed to a tasty second round match v Burnley but how they made hard work of it. After a reasonable bowling performance the boys were in several commanding positions during the batting but only to throw wickets away with injudicious shots and unnecessary run outs. All credit to cool head Rhys Woodworth and Kieran Tighe who saw the team home


Rishton U17 108-5 LHCC U17 109-1

Jamie Woodall 3-15 Jack Edgar 50*
Harry Green 2-23 Harry Halstead 36*

A calm batting performance brimming with technique and stroke play

LHCC U15 Sharks 146-5 Ramsbottom u15 (1) 100-8

Joey Stein 40 Christian Butschok – Brain 3-9 Christian Butschok – Brain 30 Tom Bridge 3-35
Harrison smith 27
Ben Uttley 20

A magnificent batting and bowling performance though it remains a mystery why Ramsbottom put the under 15s games on a postage sized pitch in view of the size of the ground

Accrington u15 81-5 LHCC Dolphins 55-8

Georgia Clough 13

A poor batting performance by the team, albeit that it was far from full strength – all 8 wickets were bowled out – very disappointing indeed and work to be done

LHCC U13 Panthers 53- all out Todmorden u13 full 25-all out

Conor Juriansz 11 Joseph Halstead 4-3
Josh Waddington 10 Charlie Bithell 2-7

On a difficult early season track the batting was indebted to the graft of Conor and Josh in posting a total that at least gave some hope. Enter Joseph Halstead who’s 4 all bowled wickets in 4 balls reduced Todmorden to 8 for 7 and from which there was no recovery

LHCC U13 Panthers 94-5 Darwen u13 full 77-6

Joseph Halstead 22* James Wearden 4-9
Josh Waddington 20
Georgia Clough 19

A good bowling performance for young Wearden who joined the club from Baxenden over the winter

Josh Butterworth 2-9 Jack Simm 17
Thomas Halstead 16
Georgie Holt 11*

A tasty encounter with Burnley in round 2 awaits. Despite the ease of the victory the team were not at their best and were somewhat shaken by the injury to James Bridge which meant that they played most of the game with 7 players. Wishing James a speedy recovery after he bravely dived and was inadvertently spiked by another fielder

Burnley u9 232-8 LHCC Atkinson –Morley u9 Hornets 253 -4

Kyle Tootle 2-7 Jack Spence 15*

A good performance by the Hornets in all 3 disciplines. The team bowled straight with few wides, had 2 direct runs outs from Henri Cottam and batted sensibly. Well played
