                                                               Alex Claridge – Ingham 10


Inexperience proving costly both in the field and with the bat. Too many runs and wickets given away. Nonetheless some very satisfying aspects of the game.

Captain John Nicholas, manager Dave Nicholas and umpire Gordon Howley doing a first class job in bringing these boys through – as exemplified this week by 14 year old Max Dawson’s biggest score for the 3s.







Although the season got off to a defeat, the under 17s have had a decent start to the season and this is proving a platform for some of the players to ignite their season. This season the division has amalgamated with the Ribblesdale League whose teams who play as under 18s  


LHCC U17 89-5 v Feniscowles u18 91 -1


James Wheatcroft 51*


LHCC u17 114 -4     Baxenden/Gt Harwood u18 u15 94 – 6


Alex Sutcliffe 47*     Danny Simm 2-21

Ross Birchall 35*     Josh Sutcliffe 2-21

A match umpired by former Lancashire and England player Ian Austin —– oh and Dave Nicholas.


LHCC u17 – 89-7       Rishton u17 86-6


Jack Moodie 23

Bradley Wright 23


A tight second half bowling performance created the narrow win



Barnoldswick u18 101- 8    LHCC u17 102 -5


Robson Elliott 4-18         Joey Stein 45

                            Bradley Wright 24
