This weekend, whilst we look forward to the rare occurrence of all three senior teams facing the same opposition counterparts in Nelson, attention also turns to our Hawks Under 11s, who face a cup semi final away at Burnley on Saturday morning.
Having already beaten strong sides in Haslingden and Clitheroe en route to the semi final, Paul Newton’s side go into the game hopeful of further success. Victory would bring the final to the Cliffe.
Indeed our Under 11s side are as yet unbeaten since joining the Lancashire Youth Cricket League. Wednesday’s League victory against Enfield represented a sixth straight league win, and eight in total with the aforementioned cup wins.
2017 has so far been extremely promising for our Hawks sides in general, with only the Under 9s having been beaten as yet, in their first ever game together against East Lancs.
This makes it all the more pleasing to see them bounce back to beat East Lancs in the return fixture last weekend, cementing their position at the top of the table.
Remarkably, as you can see, all four Hawks sides that have been in action currently sit top of their respective tables, and hold a combined record of
Played 20 – Won 18 – Tied 1 – Lost 1
Whilst we are aware that we are taking part in the lower division in each section, having only joined the LYCL this season, this current record is beyond expectations, and indicative that we are doing things right at many levels. This is testament to the hard work put in over the last few years by the junior co-ordinator, team managers and coaches.
Much of the season yet to go, but progress reports don’t get much more positive. Long may it continue.
