Under-9s show the way in indoor tourney

The Under-9s 2024 season got underway last Sunday when they entered the Bury Cricket Indoor Tournament at Castle Leisure Centre.

The team, which included: Tom Herbert, Archie Kerr, Seth Duerden, Oli Gardner, Woody Hallows, Jack Stewart and Tom Heap, were placed in the group stages with Walshaw, Tottington St John’s, Stand and Ramsbottom.

They went on to win three of their four group games, including a last ball thriller against local rivals Ramsbottom.

Runner-up in the group stage meant a play-off game for third place in which they defeated Elton.

Third place out of ten teams – and with three players aged 7 or under – was an excellent effort and fully deserved.

All the players performed really well individually and as a team to help the club finish one place better than last season.

Congratulations to Stand CC who took the trophy and thanks to all parents for their support.
