Lancashire Under 15 (Boys) - Season 2013

The season of 2013 sees the Under 15 team attempting to repeat last year’s teams’ success on becoming National Champions.

This will be a tall order but everyone is focussed on the possibility. In this year’s ECB 50 Overs Cup we will play Cheshire, Derbyshire, Notts and Yorkshire home and away. There will be quarter finals again in 2013 so there will be the chance that being placed in the top two of our group will almost guarantee a place. There will again be a Development team in 2013 where players just below the top rank will push hard to gain recognition and be promoted into the full county team.

LANCASHIRE 187 for 6 (Morris 58 Brownlow 47)

DURHAM 78 (Roberts 3 for 9)

Lancashire won by 109 runs

 

This was a good outing for the team prior to the Yorkshire Bank Cup matches. Dominic Morris and Chris Brownlow were the pick of the batsmen as we totalled 187 for 6 in our 50 overs.  Durham struggled against our bowlers managing to reach just 78. Charlie Roberts took 3 for 9 with Sam Dillon and Chris Brownlow picking up a brace each.

MAIN COUNTY TEAM - YORKSHIRE BANK CUP (50 OVERS)

Sunday 9 June v CHESHIRE at Oulton Park CC

CHESHIRE 148 (Houghton 3-26  Hussain 3-28)

LANCASHIRE 149 for 7 (Phelan 49)

Lancashire won by 3 wkts

 

Cheshire won the toss and decided to bat – a decision that later in the afternoon was looking to be the correct one. We bowled well on a wicket offering some assistance to the bowlers with Daniel Houghton and Omar Hussain bagging three wickets each. The Cheshire total was restricted to 148 and we felt reasonably confident of achieving that target. At 69 for 6 that confidence was ebbing a little. It was at this stage that captain James Seward and Harrison Phelan arrived at the crease. 89 runs later with just 2 runs needed Harrison fell one short of his half century. James was 29 not out when the winning runs were scored. No doubt Cheshire rued the two dropped catches in that partnership but both James and Harrison must be congratulated on their determination in testing conditions.

 

Sunday 16 June v NOTTINGHAMSHIRE at URMSTON CC

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE 139 (Roberts 5-32)

LANCASHIRE 140 for 2 (Morris 41 Jones 35* Brownlow 32*)

Lancashire won by 8 wkts

 

This was an easy victory set up by an amazing burst of three wickets by Charlie Roberts in his first over which ripped through the Notts middle order. A ninth wicket partnership of 40 runs made the Notts final score of 139 a little more respectable. Apart from losing an early wicket Dominic Morris (41) and Michael Jones with Chris Brownlow took Lancashire to victory with two wins out of two games played to date.

 

Tuesday 25 June v DERBYSHIRE at Chapel en le Frith CC

DERBYSHIRE 267 for 5

LANCASHIRE 254 for 8 (Brownlow 67)

Derbyshire won by 13 runs

 

This was a high scoring game which ended with Lancashire just 13 runs short of the Derbyshire total of 267. A second wicket partnership of 121 helped Derbyshire to their big total. Everyone chipped in for Lancashire and at one stage we were on target but wickets began to fall and we ended just short. Chris Brownlow top scored with 67. This makes the next game at Northern on 4th July against Yorkshire a must win one.

 

Thursday 4 July v YORKSHIRE at NORTHERN CC

YORKSHIRE 195 for 9

LANCASHIRE 141 (Khan 31 Brownlow 30)

Yorkshire won by 54 runs

 

This was a vital match for Lancashire that began well with Yorkshire 79 for 5 but a sixth wicket partnership of 98 swung the match in Yorkshire’s favour. The Lancashire reply started quite well in spite of losing Dominic Morris with a facial injury. At 88 for 2 the innings crumbled to 109 for 7. Yorkshire duly completed their win to remain unbeaten in this competition.

 

Monday 15 July v DERBYSHIRE at BURNLEY CC

LANCASHIRE 237 for 9 (Khan 62 Jones 61)

DERBYSHIRE 214 (Smith 4-31)

Lancashire won by 23 runs

 

This victory put Lancashire back on track for a potential Quarter Final tie in the Yorkshire Bank Cup. Saad Khan (62) and Michael Jones (61) were the main contributors with the bat with some fine hitting late on from Harrison Phelan. Derbyshire made a posietive start and reached 92 with the loss of just one wicket. The introduction of spin slowed them down and Jake Smith produced a spell of 4 for 31 in his ten overs to set Lancashire on the way to victory

 

Thursday 18 July v CHESHIRE at LEIGH CC

CHESHIRE 173 (Davidson 3-2)

LANCASHIRE 174 for 1

Lancashire won by 9 wkts

 

On possibly the hottest day of any year for a while the Under 15’s completed a comfortable win over Cheshire. They began well but wickets eventually began to fall and a late flurry of wickets from Will Davidson saw them dismissed for 170. In reply Saad Khan with 90 not out and Will Davidson with 70 saw Lancashire home with a big opening stand. This victory places the Under 15’s in with a strong chance of qualifying for the Quarter Finals,

DEVELOPMENT SQUAD MATCHES

Wednesday 5 June v LINCOLNSHIRE at Cleethorpes CC

LINCOLNSHIRE 163 for 7 (Wyman 3-30)

LANCASHIRE 105

Lincolnshire won by 58 runs

This 45 overs game was played at Cleethorpes in typical North Sea coast conditions. Lincolnshire fielded their full county team and we did well restricting them to 163 runs. Nathan Wyman was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets. We opened well with Emma Lamb making her debut and Lewis Wright coping reasonably with the Lincolnshire attack. It was the introduction of spin that then proved our downfall. Emma continued to bat well eventually being caught for 24. Aaron Tesz and Nathan Wyman delivered some lusty blows at the end but we were eventually dismissed for a disappointing 105.

 

Tuesday 18 June v NORTH EAST WALES at Northop Hall CC

NORTH EAST WALES 109 (Bristol 3-4)

LANCASHIRE 110 for 0 (Emma Lamb 56* L Wright 44*)

Lancashire won by 10 wkts

 

This was a comfortable win for the Development team boosted by the addition of Emma Lamb and Rachel Dickinson from the U15 Girls tea. North East Wales managed just 109 with Josh Bristol’s left arm spin taking 3 wickets for just 4 runs. Emma with 56 and Lewis Wright 44 knocked off the runs without loss.

 

Sunday 30 June v YORKSHIRE at SEFTON PARK CC

LANCASHIRE 148 (Wright 35)

YORKSHIRE 149 for 3

Yorkshire won by 7 wkts

 

Lancashire opted to bat and found runs hard to come by against a good Yorkshire attack. Lewis Wright top scored with 35 but the later batsmen struggled. Yorkshire began slowly but paced their reply to emerge winners with just a couple of overs left.
