Ramsbottom Under 18s v Crompton Under 18s – 2 September 2022

RCC 133-5 (15 overs) CCC 83-7 (15 overs)

“Season ends on a high”
Our young team finished the season with a 50-run win and respectable mid table position in the East Division.
Rammy won the toss and chose to bat in a reduced over game to account for the fading light this time of year. 
Ali Abbas (23 off 16 balls) opened with Toby Ashworth and we scored quickly. Despite wickets falling everyone scored at a run-a-ball or better with standout innings from Toby Ashworth (52* off 38 balls, 5 x 4s and 3 x 6s) and Jack Hinchcliffe (31 off 16 balls, 2 x 4s and 3 x 6s). 
A much improved batting performance from our team who have struggled in recent games to post an above par target. 
Bouyed with confidence our bowlers were economical and wickets started to fall quickly, slowing the visitors’ progress. Wickets were shared between Tom Ireland (1) Toby Ashworth (2), Lewie Pearson (1), Ali Abbas (2), Jack Hinchliffe (1). Maeve Jones closed out the innings with an economical over. 
The supporters were happy with the convincing win, sealing a double over CCC this season. 
Winter well everyone!
