Merchants Take the Title!!

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Our congratulations go to Merchant Taylors' Schools (Sefton) on winning this year’s Lancashire Cricket Board U13s Schools Indoor Inter Cricket Competition.

This year's county final was contested by Wellacre School (Trafford), Rainford High School (St Helens), Lancaster Royal Grammar School (Lancaster), Ormskirk School (West Lancashire), Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (Blackburn with Darwen) and Merchant Taylors' School (Sefton). The cricket played was of high quality with most games going to the wire.

Lancaster Grammar and Merchant Taylors' finished on equal points in the round robin competition, both teams winning 4 out of their 5 games. However it was Merchants who were crowned County Champions through taking more wickets on the day.

Special mention goes to George Lavelle of Merchant Taylors' who retired on 25+ in all but 1 game.

Big thank you to Shaun for organising such an excellent competition. All the games were played in a great spirit and to a high standard. The fact that no team managed to win all its games shows how even the tournament was. The whole day was a credit to junior cricket in the county.
