Yesterday our Hawks under 13s side retained their Hyndburn Indoor Competition title for a third consecutive year,
With a squad of seven players comprising Lewis Elliott, Matt Litherland, Sam Anderson, Euan Vickery, Ismael Shakeel, Lewis Cartmell and Jack Roberts, we initially took on Baxenden in the semi-final, running out winners by 30 runs.
The final was a tighter affair against Church, but good bowling and smart fielding saw us take 6 wickets to leave Church on net 12 runs after their 6 overs. Sensible batting saw us past their total by some margin and even though we lost a few wickets toward the end victory was ours by 6 runs.
A very positive start to 2018 for our Hawks, this a second trophy following our Under 15s victory in the same competition last week. Like their U15s counterparts, 5 of yesterday’s Under 13s squad can return to defend their title next year.
