Cricketers are U15 County Champions
Thursday, 28 June 2012
Bolton School cricketers have been named the U-15 Lancashire County Champions, after finals day of the County Cup 20/20 competition held at Vernon Carus C.C in Preston.
The boys overcame Merchant Taylors in the semi final, scoring 124 runs for 2 wickets in their 20 overs. Their victory led them to face MGS in the final which they won 155 for 3. To make it to finals day, Bolton School overcome Lancaster by 45 runs at the quarter final stage and Parklands, St James, and Little Lever in previous rounds.
Mr Johnson, Head of PE, said: "The lads produced some breathing-taking cricket on the day, with some tight bowling and powerful batting, they thoroughly deserve their title as County Champions. They will proceed to the Northern Finals Day competing with the winners of Yorkshire, Cumbria and Durham/ Northumberland, in what will be a very exciting day, and hopefully an exhibition of cricket."
