Yesterday our Hawks U15s started the 2018 season with a bang, winning the Hyndburn Indoor Cricket Tournament.
In the first game, Paul Houldsworth’s side faced Rishton CC, scoring 252 and restricting them to 225, before going on to beat Church CC by a score of 247 – 236
Our Junior Coordinator Mick Deasey said ‘In all, we scored 99 runs for the loss of just one wicket this afternoon and won convincingly against both Church and Rishton. Top performances all round from the lads, proper cricket shots and only one “yahoo” that cost the one and only wicket.’
Our six a side team comprised Seb Whalley, Ethan Houldsworth, Rayhaan Hussain, Alex Kennedy, Thomas Newton and Haris Iqbal. The victory is made all the more impressive given five of these six players will be eligible to play at U15 level in 2019.
Next week our Hawks Under 13’s take part in their age category version of the same tournament, going in as Champions and looking to retain their title. We’ll let you know how they get on.
