Our Hawks Under 15s finished runners up in their age group version of the Hyndburn Indoor Cricket Competition at Norden Sports Centre yesterday afternoon.
As previously reported, the team came through an eliminator against Church CC two weeks ago to reach yesterday’s Finals Day, which comprised teams from Rishton CC, Enfield CC And Accrington CC.
In our semi-final we beat Rishton comfortably, scoring 230 and restricting them to 212, but were unable to repeat this feat in the final against a very strong Accrington side, who ran out convincing and well deserved winners, scoring 239 to our 210.
The Hawks side contained 3 younger players, 2 of whom are still eligible for our Under 13s side, and so should take heart form their performance, only finally losing to a particularly strong side containing all six full age players with a lot of District Cricket experience between them. This will be good experience for next year.
Our Under 9’s will look to defend their title in their age group version of the same competition at Norden on Sunday 19th March.
