On Tuesday 19 June, the U11 Lancashire Cricket Plate Final 2018 was held at East Lancashire CC. Kirkham were put into bat by Oldham, having lost the toss. Kirkham started steadily and the first pair, James Shuttleworth and Mason Wilkins, scored 13 runs. The second pair, Ewan Huck and Ben Firth, also performed well and scored 21. The next pair of Oliver Kollard and Harry Case had to face two of Oldham’s better bowlers and scored 4 runs. The final pair, Harvey Barber and Harry Ribchester, played superbly and scored 22 runs to give us a very respectable 60 runs off 12 overs. From the start, our bowlers were very accurate and Oldham struggled to score runs and we eventually restricted them to 37 runs off 12 overs. Congratulations to KGJS U11 boys and thank you to Oldham Hulme and Lancashire Schools Cricket Association for organising the final.
