Tecnical Problems – Weekend Reports

Unfortunately, the site has been beset with further technical problems since the weekend.  Gladly we are now back up and running and hopefully it will stay that way.

As for the weekends cricket, Saturday saw the home game against Haslingden abandoned without a ball being bowled.  This game will now be replayed on Saturday July 12th.

On Sunday we progressed to the quarter finals of the Worsley Cup with an excellent victory over Colne.   

House batted first with Will Driver (62) and skipper Jon Finch (69) both in the runs sharing 133 for the first wicket.  The pro built on the good work of the openers with 48  before Chris Bleazard (37*)  and Hassan Khan (31*) saw the lads to a daunting 277 from their 50 overs.

Colne made an excellent start to their reply thanks in no small part to paid man Blake Snijman who struck a majestic 103 before being the eighth man out excellently caught at backward point by the diving Hassan Khan off the bowling of the pro.  The game was very much in the balance until this point thanks to support for Snijman from Colin Varley (25) and Aaron Pollard (22) .  Joe Hawke (4-43) and Will Driver (3-40) were the pick of the Lowerhouse bowlers.

The win sets up a mouth watering quarter final tie away to rivals Burnley on Saturday 31st May.
