Weekend Preview 27th-28th May 2017

Great Harwood Cricket Club

This Bank Holiday weekend sees all three senior sides are in action, with home games for our 3rd and 1st XI on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Our 2nd XI travel to Clitheroe on Sunday, whilst our 3rd XI complete a Saturday-Monday double header with a short trip to Rishton.

On Saturday our 3rd XI welcome Rawtenstall to the Cliffe, with Geoff Allen captaining. Aftab Hussain returns following injury and Ethan Houldsworth keeps his place after impressing on debut last week whilst the game also sees the return to cricket after several years out for Phil Aspinall.

On Sunday our 1st XI face familiar opposition as we take on former Ribblesdale League side and current table-toppers Clitheroe. Matthew Bunn and Adam Masood return to the side in place of Sohail Ali and Paul Newton.

Sohail Ali will instead travel to Clitheroe to captain a young but talented 2nd XI as we look to press on from an encouraging start to the season.

Monday sees more Bank Holiday bonus cricket, with our 3rd XI travelling to Rishton. Richard Law-Riding returns as captain in a side that sees seven changes from Saturday’s side; Jason Kayley, Wayne Fitzharris, Matt Oddie, Joel Houldsworth, Ste Schofield and Ammar Malik all coming in.

An action packed weekend ahead as we look to get back to winning ways. The bar will be open from 12.30pm for each home game. Hope to see many of you at the Cliffe.
