In a warm-up to the season, Heywood showed accomplished skills with both bat and ball and in the field. The 6-a-side format saw Heywood only lose once in 3 weekends’ worth of action and they thoroughly deserved this success.
Heywood grew in confidence as the weekend progressed and will be a tough proposition when the action moves outside in April.
Bowling straight and sensible batting brushed aside rivals from Uppermill, Walshaw, Liverpool, Glodwick and Heyside in a round-robin format that saw each side play each other.
Look out for this exciting groups home matches on Sunday mornings starting in May.
Under-13s head coach John Heywood passes on huge thanks to Rob Morley for entering the team into the competition and also to Sean Burrill, the U13 assistant manager, for running most sessions.
Squad members who participated: Jack Morley, Harrison Crompton, Harrison Kilroy, Ethan Harding, Robert Ruskin, Lee Bagshaw, Michael Witts, Emily Carter, Jake Meade, Sam Waterworth, Jack Taylor and Shehyaar Javaid.
