Match Reports – 1st June 2012


Haslingden 2XI 202 – all out        LHCC 2XI 93- all out                       

Jack Edgar 5-51                    Josh Lavin 17

Mickey Lee 2-32                     Rhys Woodworth 16

Ben Gorton 14

Jack Edgar 11

The relief of keeping the Haslingden score down to just over 200 did not last long as wickets tumbled regularly as the run rate constantly increased .Earlier in the day it appeared that Haslingden would record 300 but the return of Mickey Lee to active cricket and Jack Edgar’s second spell clawed the game back. Unfortunately the batsmen had no answer to a Haslingden side that are potential second eleven champions

East Lancs 3XI 202-7                        LHCC 3XI 191 – all out                  

                                                               Will Norcross 44

Joe Gray 4-48                               Ben Gorton 38

Jimmy Ridehalgh 3-16                        Jamie Woodall 33*          

Jamie Woodall 2-32                          Joe Bayliff 27

                                            James Ridehalgh 18

Once again the management went home happy despite a defeat with the spirited way in which this largely under 15 tyean went about the match. Against a team with a much higher average age the boys stuck to the task in the filed with James Ridehalgh taking two good catches at mid-wicket. The bowlers toiled in searing heat with Joe Gray most successful

Young Jimmy shared in a 65 opening stand with Ben Gorton and good knocks from the above mentioned took the team to within reach before inexperience saw Norcross run out . Woodall restored hope with some well-timed strokes to all corners of the ground but ran out of partners.


LHCC U15 156 – 3                                         Ramsbottom 153-6                                      

Harry Spark 50*                                             James Ridehalgh 2-18

Will Norcross 32

Harry Halstead 28

Liam Heaton 18

Lowerhouse batted first in this 20 over game played on a pitch far too small for under 15s cricket. Harry Spark scored a maiden 50 for the club.

LHCC U15 Barracudas 132-1                                 Longridge u15 (2)62 – all out

Michael Rogan 18*                                                    Ewan Macadam 2-16

The first competitive match for the under 15s 3XI saw them take on Longridge u15 2XI. Debutants MacAdam and Zaman got off to a good start although the others in the team will know that they will face much stiffer tests. Joe Halstead and Jack Moodie from the 13s also distinguished themselves.

Burnley u13 full 64 all out                                          LHCC U13 Panthers 65-8                                         

Ethan Laraway 3-9                                                      Joseph Halstead 18

Dec Stansfield 2-9

A squeaky win for the boys to gain revenge for the cup defeat but yet to fire on all cylinders.

Ramsbottom u13 full 119- 7          LHCC U 13 Panthers 108-6    

Joe Halstead 4-11                                   Joe Halstead 25

Dec Stansfield 19*

Jack Moodie 14*

Harry Wheatcroft 14

The difference in this game was the 28 margin between the extras we gave away compared to Ramsbottom – all the result of poor bowling.

LHCC 13 Lions 291 – 3                                  Nelson u13 218 – 8 

Jack Moodie 16                                                Ryan Starkie 3-10

Tom Bridge 13*

Joe Halstead 12*

A comprehensive victory only marred by the knee injury to Ryan Starkie who was replaced by jack Moodie for batting. 

LHCC U13 Tigers 234-5                           LHCC u13 Cougars 218-7 

 Ross Birchall 14                                           Taha Dabir 134

Josh Waddington 18

Ross Birchall 13                                                                ]

Jess Nixon 11*

Georgia Clough 11*

Seconds v Thirds in these close together league matches which would have been closer but for the errors of judgement made by the Cougars in surrendering wickets. The difference in scores in the 2 games can be put down to the pitch improving in the better weather.

LHCC u11 Bears 266-4                                      East Lancs 229 -6    

Ben Woodall 12                                                 Rowan Greenwood 2-8

Jack Simm 11

Rowan Greenwood 10*

Caleb Greenhalgh 10*

Josh Moodie 11

The Bears seem to be putting performances together now after a patchy start to the season. All 3 disciplines were very effective especially the fielding.


Rishton u9 232-8                                             LHCC u9 236 – 2 

Anthony Barrett 3-2                                         Aman Singh 21

Ben Harrison 2 – 3

A good bowling performance topped off by a magnificent innings from Aman with shots to all boundaries.
