Ramsbottom Under 18s v Haslingden Under 18s – 26 August 2022

RCC 86 for8 (18 overs) HCC 89 for 2 (14.3 overs) 

Local Derby ends in disappointment for Rammy
Stand in Captain Jack won the toss and chose to bat in the best of the light. 
In-form Ali made a great start (29 off 27, 4 x 4s) but the rest of the top four faltered against some good HCC bowling. Some runs from the middle order with Maeve  (13), Isaac (16) and a short cameo from Oli (13*) set a well below par target off the allotted 18 overs. 
Rammy needed a stunning bowing and fielding performance to have any chance. Our openers delivered, Toby Ash 4-0-9-0 and Abby 4-1-13-1 but our change bowlers suffered against the experienced HCC batting. 
More lessons learned for our young team – most of them have two more seasons at this age group. 
We look forward to our final game against Crompton at home 5:30pm on Fri 2nd Sept.
