Mount trio shine in national indoor tournament

Three of Greenmount’s promising youngsters, Adam Clarke (back row extreme left); Edward Dickinson (front row extreme left) and Eduardo Wackrill (back row extreme right) were in action when the Northern Star TCA team competed in the Indoor Cricket National Invitation Competition.

Northern Star finished top of their qualifying group section winning all of their three games before going down narrowly by two runs in the first v second play-off.

Under 11 & 13 training set to commence

Junior players are reminded that winter training for the U13s and U11s is starting soon. Messages on Spond and emails have been sent out.

Training will run for ten weeks at Woodhey High School, Fridays from 6pm to 7pm.

Dates are: January 13th 20th & 27th; February 3rd 10th & 17th and March 3rd 10th 17th & 24th

We will be requesting a contribution of £20 towards the costs incurred and really do need to know whether attending or not – thank you to those that have replied.

Please confirm via email to Leigh Dickinson on gccupdates@gmail.com

We really do not wish to be in a position where training is pulled because of a lack of availability.

County calls for Greenmount youngsters

Greenmount’s Noah Birtwistle and Ed Wackrill have been successful in being selected for the Lancashire Under-13 squad and will start a lengthy spell of winter training in the near future.

The club already have Max Birtwistle in the Under-15s and George Kenyon has been selected in the Under-12 winter training group.

This represents a great opportunity within the pathway for all to benefit from 18 weeks of county training. All four are, of course, on the club’s EPP (Emerging Players Programme). Very positive news!
