LCB Boys Under 17s Progress to Royal London County Cup Final

THE LCB Boys Under 17 progress through to the National Final of the Royal London County Cup, where they will meet Middlesex, at Kibworth CC, on Sunday, 9 July 2017, from 10:45am.  Having topped the North Regional group with wins against Durham, Yorkshire and Derbyshire, and only one defeat against Cheshire, they qualified for the sem final against Northamptonshire, at Ormskirk CC. 

The semi final was a close encounter. Northants elected to bat 1st and made a good start posting 55 for the 1st wicket, but with excellent bowling from Lancashire's Lewis Dove (4-44), reduced the opposition to 172 all out. In reply Lancashire lost 4 early wickets, but an excellent fifth wicket partnership of 75 by captain Rehan Udwadia (57) and Sam Dorsey 44* and a quick fire 41* by Lewis Dove led Lancashire to victory by 5 wickets with 2 overs to spare.

Full scorecard -> LCB Under 17 won by 5 wickets!

Bob Deardon, LCB Under 17s Manager, speaking about the semi-final performance said:- "In a tense game on a challenging pitch I was delighted to see the boys apply great application and determined batting particularly by the middle order to clinch the win. We'd like to thank Ormskirk CC for hosting the game and their continued support of staging numerous matches for our county age group programme."

Gary Yates, LCB Under 17s Head Coach and LCCC Academy Director, is looking forward to the final. He added:- "It's great to see our Under 17's perform well to get to the national final on Sunday. This group of players have shown some determination and fight with winning some close games along the way. If we achieve our potential on Sunday we can hopefully win the final, and for the team, this will be an excellent experience of competing on a big day."
