FORMBY Cricket Club’s Junior Section is enjoying a very successful season both in the community and in their results on the field of play.
U9’s manager Richard Scanlon is thrilled to be getting 20 players regularly training on Saturdays, and the fruits of such works are evident in their success on the pitch.
The U11A team are top of their division in the Southport league with one game to play and are also doing well in the Merseyside league.
The U11B have won every game this season in both leagues, a fantastic performance in their first summer of hard ball cricket. The U13 and U15 teams are showing improvement with Tom Randall scoring a century for the U13, and both Liam McGlochlan and Andy Marsh registering half centuries for the U15’s.
ANY youngsters aged four-to-13 years interested in playing cricket should consider attending the Formby Cricket Club Junior Summer World Cup Course on August 1, 2, 3, 4. The four days will offer a wide variety of skills, games and competitions with coaching being led by 1st X1 players Mark Baker, Jan Gadzina and Australian James Kennedy.
