Under 9s Hfx v Outlane 20/5/18
Lightcliffe u9s 142-6 lost to Outlane/Blackley 181-4 by 39 runs
Sunday 20th May 2018. Halifax Junior Cricket League Sunday Under 9s
Lightcliffe’s Halifax Under 9s played another enjoyable match but couldn’t manage to overcome the total set by the Outlane / Blackley side.
Lightcliffe bowled first and whilst at times this reflected their relative inexperience there were nevertheless some solid performances.
Wicket for Lucas Arnot, Imad Haidry, Sam Stobart and Jack Cowling kept the visitors in the game.
With the bat, Tom Bancroft ran well between the wickets, Luke Barrowcliffe found the gaps with his free hits and Richard Buckland hit a boundary. Top scores came from Haidry (10) and Arnott (19).
Joseph Schroeder, Jacob Wood, and Oliver Frearson all contributed to another great game played in the right spirit.
Ultimately the Outlane/Blackley team bowled just a little straighter and this proved the difference between the sides on the day.
