Bolton School’s U15s’ cricket team was given a fillip this week when former Lancashire and England cricketer Warren Hegg dropped into their indoor nets session to offer them words of inspiration ahead of their upcoming English Schools’ Cricket Association (ESCA) Northern Quarter Final against Sale Grammar School. A former wicketkeeper, Warren offered a masterclass in this discipline before offering practical tips and general words of cricketing wisdom to the boys along with two other former Lancashire players John Abrahams and Sajid Mahmood, who also helped out with the coaching session. After wishing the boys well for the season, Warren said: "I really enjoyed that session and there was plenty of talent on show! I shall look out for the boys' results this season with interest."

Last season, the Bolton boys were the ESCA U14s’ Lancashire champions and they now go on to represent the county in the Northern competition in a tie at Brooklands Cricket Club on the weekend of 23 and 24 April. If they were to overcome Sale Grammar, who will be representing Cheshire, then they would progress to the Northern Semi-Final where they would meet, in an away fixture, either Newcastle School for Boys (representing Northumberland) or Hetton School (representing Durham).
