Meet our girls!

At Lowerhouse  we have three Lancashire County Performance squad players.

Georgie Holt is a under 15’s wicket keeper batsmen who recently has made her 1st XI debut for Lancashire women. A fantastic achievement at such a young age.

Emily Gibbins  is playing for the Under 17’s and has been selected, with Georgie, to play for the Lancs 2nds at Malvern in the summer

Annabelle Uttley and Liberty Heap are both under 13’s players. They have recently been selected for a National festival squad to play against other Countys under 15 squads this year. First they must train with their new team mates from all over the country in June, then a final squad will be selected for August. Although this is not a ECB team it’s certainly a positive move for both girls.

Kerry Gibbins is also in the LCB under 13’s development squad and is showing lots of promise with her bowling.

The first eleven today tied with Nelson in the second last over thriller of the weekend. The second team didn’t bowl a ball all weekend with both games succumbing to the weather.

The match at Seedhill was even closer with Nelson and Lowerhouse playing out a tie in a 22 overs a-side game. Harrison Phelan top scored with 34, sub professional James Price made 18 and Russell Bradley 11 in Nelson’s 91-6. Jon Finch took 4-37 for Lowerhouse. Toxy Hussain then took 3-50 and Sam Halstead 2-22 in Lowerhouse’s 91-7. Finch top scored with 27 and Adam Hugill made 26 before falling leg before to Hussain off the final ball of the match. Skipper Charlie Cottam was one of two run outs in the Lowerhouse innings. The result takes Lowerhouse 1 point clear of Nelson and 4 clear of Ramsbottom and 7 ahead of Burnley at the top of the table after five matches.
