We are delighted to confirm that our under 13s yesterday won the Hyndburn Indoor Cricket Competition.
A six player side, comprising Lewis Cartmell, Marcus Hamer, Ethan Houldsworth, Rayhaan Hussain, Haris Iqbal and Alex Kennedy faced opposition from Baxenden, Rishton and Church Cricket Clubs and came out on top.
The decisive game was against Church CC, where a closely fought affair went down to the final ball. Hawks captain Ethan Houldsworth ran out the Church batsman with a direct hit to claim victory.
Every player contributed with ball and bat in all three games. Huge congratulations to all involved from everybody at the club.
And so 2017 begins with a trophy, we hope the first of many.
Next week our Under 11s look to match the achievement as they take on Baxenden and Oswaldtwistle Immanuel CC in their age category version of the same competition.
