COMP U21's CHAMPIONS OF THE NORTH WEST

Liverpool Competition U21’s triumphed over the Northern League U21’s by 8 wickets to pick up the NW U21 CricTours Inter-League Trophy, played at Liverpool. The sides reached the final after qualifying through their groups featuring the Bolton League, Greater Manchester Cricket league, the Pennine League and the North Staffs /South Cheshire League.

Asked to bat first the Northern league lads found it hard to score quickly. Cieran Johnson batted well to anchor the innings with 71 and put together a 65 run partnership with Ross Bretherton to leave the Northern League with 152 off their 50 overs. John Dotters bowled 10 overs for 17 runs and Chris Laker and Tyler McGladdery picked up a couple of wickets each for the Liverpool Competition.

In reply, after coming together at 16 for 2, both wickets for Bretherton, James Seward (69no) and Sam Kershaw (67no) batted quite superbly to steer the Comp side to victory in 36 overs.

With thanks to umpires Ian Herbert and Bob Dearden and Tommy Wilson for presenting the Trophy.
