Hawks U9s win Hyndburn Indoor Competition

Yesterday our Hawks Under 9s followed up on previous success by our U13s and U15s by winning their version of the Hyndburn Indoor Cricket Tournament.
In the semi-final, Allan Armer’s side took on Baxenden, scoring 260-1 (255) thanks to 18 from William Armer and 13 from Thomas Henderson, before restricting Baxenden to 237-3 (222), with Scott Duckworth (1-2) and William Armer (1-3) the pick of the bowlers.
In the final, we took on Rishton. Bowling first, we restricted them to 221-2 (211) with Max Cocken taking 2-2.  Careful batting meant we closed on 232-1 (227), taking the title with a 16 run victory.
Congratulations to all involved. Our team comprised William Armer, Max Cocken, Joshua Duckworth, Scott Duckworth, Thomas Henderson and Jonathan Wilson.
Victory means we have won three of the four age range versions of this competition in 2018, a very positive start to the year. Attention now turns to the season itself, as we look to follow up on a successful 2017 in the Lancashire Junior Cricket League.

Hawks U11s Champions

Our Hawks Under 11s are champions of the Lancashire Junior Cricket League Under 11 Cup.
On Saturday morning, we took on Rishton in the final at The Cliffe. Batting first, we scored 282 before restricting Rishton to just 217 to claim victory.
The Hawks U11s beat Haslingden, Clitheroe and Burnley on their way to the final. The victory against Burnley was particularly pleasing given they are unbeaten in the top division this year with 8 wins out of 8. We are in Division 3, as newcomers to the Lancashire League, but also currently hold a 100% record.
Well done to all our players and manager Paul Newton, who now look to push towards a league and cup double.
