Greenfield Under 13s win the Lancashire Cup!!

Having beaten strong Friarmere CC and Monton CC teams to qualify as the GMCL representatives for the County competition, Greenfield were drawn to play Astley Bridge away (Bolton league) in the Quarter Final. A compete team performance resulted in a 30 run win and qualification to finals day.

The Semi Final with Norden (Lancashire League) resulted in a 40 run win which meant we faced Eccleston CC (Palace Shield) who had beaten Northern CC (Liverpool comp.) in their semi-final.
In the final Greenfield batted first and achieved a total of 100 for 7. In the reply, the final shifted completely in Greenfield’s direction as the opening 9 overs resulted in Eccleston stumbling to 29 for 7 and they ended up well short of the target.

Greenfield CC were proud to represent GMCL and achieved their first U13’s Lancashire Cup in their history, well done to the team from everyone in the league.
