Following the success of our Hawks Under 13s last Sunday, we are delighted to confirm that our Under 11s team emulated them yesterday, winning their age-group version of the Hyndburn Indoor 6-a-side Competition.
Batting first on each occasion, we beat Baxenden and Oswaldtwistle Immanuel comfortably in the group games, setting up a final against Rishton.
Some disciplined batting and good running between wickets saw us close on a net 238, losing only one wicket in the process. Rishton’s reply was kept in check by some accurate bowling and their last pair came to the wicket with 33 runs still required. Despite some good hitting and desperate running by the Rishton pair, the Harwood bowlers and fielders kept calm and brought the title home with an 8 run victory.
Manager Paul Newton’s team was Sam Anderson, Cameron Bousfield, Lewis Elliott, Matthew Litherland, Ishmael Shakeel and Euan Vickery.
Once again, huge congratulations to all involved from everybody at the club.
Our Under 15’s will be up next, with a preliminary knockout match against Church CC at Norden Sports Centre on Sunday 12th February from 2pm to 3pm. If successful we will compete in the Finals Day at Norden on Sunday 26th February. As ever, we’ll keep you updated on progress.
