LCB Boys Under 17s narrowly miss out on National Title

THE LCB Boys Under 17s narrowly lost to Middlesex in the final of the Royal London County Cup at Kibworth CC, on Sunday, 9 July 2017. 

Lancashire having won the toss elected to bat 1st, however lost 2 early wickets of Crawley and Southworth. This brought captain Udwadia to the crease with Heaton at the other end putting on a partnership of 94 when Udwadia was out for 44. Heaton continued impressively with new batsman Fielding and they posted a partnership of 58, when Fielding was caught for 15. Dorsey and Heaton continued well until Heaton was stumped for 118 (from 139 balls, 12 4), leaving Dorsey and Dove to conclude Lancashire's innings at 259 for 5 off the allotted 50 overs.   In reply Middlesex batted well with most of their batsmen contributing to the total, despite an early wicket taken by Udwadia of their opener Shukla for 5. With just 10 overs left Middlesex were only 3 wickets down and whilst spinners Jack Morley took 3 wickets for 52 runs and Lewis Dove 2 wickets for 38 runs, the Lancashire bowlers couldn't quite break down the Middlesex innings and Middlesex passed Lancashire's total in the final over of the match to finish 265 for 7 (49.5 overs).

Gary Yates, LCB Boys U17s Head Coach and LCCC Academy Director, said:- "It was a great game of cricket on an excellent wicket. The match followed a similar pattern throughout both innings and concluded in a very tense and exciting finish. Our players can be very proud of their performances throughout this 1 day competition. To reach a National Final is an excellent achievement. Furthermore, our players will have gained a lot of learning and understanding from this experience. We can now confidently look forward to the Specsavers U17 County Championship which is a three day competition starting this week against Yorkshire, on Tuesday, 11 July 2017, at Northern CC."

Bob Dearden, Manager for the LCB Boys U17s, added:- "It was a superb performance by our team of 16 and 17 year olds against a Middlesex team that fielded 3 strong 18 year old players, which the new regulations allow. The team, well led by Rehan Udwadia, have been a great credit to the Red Rose throughout the competition."

Sunshine and teddies came out in force for Hospice Garden Party

HUNDREDS of families from across the area flocked to the St. Joseph's Hospice Garden party, on Saturday, 8 July 2017, and enjoyed an afternoon in the sunshine celebrating the Hospice's 55th Anniversary.

The Hospice gardens were full of families picnicking and having fun in the sun while being entertained by a range of games, stalls and performances.

Over 100 children took part in the Hospice's annual Teddy Bears Parade, which was judged by the Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson; Annette Hughes, President of the Crosby Soroptimists; and Mike Parr, Chief Executive of St. Joseph's Hospice.

Princess Rapunzel dropped by to sing and tell stories to the children and the Irish Guard Singers performed for the crowd, while the BBQ, ice cream van and Prosecco Tent kept everyone well catered for during the afternoon.

Towards the end of the day, a short reflection service took place to remember former Hospice patients and loved ones, followed by a visit to the Hospice's brand new Stations of the Cross Garden.

Julie McAdam, Senior Community Fundraiser at St Joseph's Hospice, said:- "This year's Garden Party and Teddy Bears Picnic has been a tremendous success and we'd like to thank everyone who came along to support us, from those who came along on the day to our amazing volunteers who worked so hard in the run up to the event. Also, those who donated bottles and gifts for our tombolas and stalls. We couldn't have done it without you all. We'd also like to thank KK Butchers for providing all the burgers and sausages for the BBQ and Sainsburys on Great Howard Street for providing the bread rolls. Thanks also go to staff and customers of Ronnie and Rita's Hairdressers in Litherland for all the prosecco and bottles they donated. Without the support of our local community, we simply could not continue to provide the vital services and care our patients and their families so desperately need."

To support the Hospice, please contact the fundraising team on:- 0151 932 6044 or via email.
