Liverpool Under 9s @ Warrington CC

Liverpool Under 9s @ Warrington CC (Away)

Monday 7 May 2018

A busy May-bank holiday weekend saw Liverpool’s under 9s put into practice all they’d learned in the winter nets in the first fixtures of the season at Sefton Park on the Sunday and the Warrington tournament on the Monday.

The weekend’s weather was fantastic but the cricket was even better. Both the Lightning and Thunder teams started off with memorable victories in their first two games against very strong teams in Warrington. Lightning seemed to score more runs each game they played but ultimately Thunder were were undone by the eventual winners from Macclesfield. Diving catches, slapstick overthrows and warrior face-painting made for a weekend full of fun and excitement.

Since then the enthusiasm of the Monday night training sessions has been in evidence in our local Sunday fixtures at Sefton Park and Wavertree. We’ve had 23 players representing the club in this age group so far this season in 34 games. More than 50 wickets taken, close to 1000 runs scored off the bat and plenty, plenty more in byes and wides!!
