U21 PROGRAMME starts with win over N Staffs and S Cheshire

In keeping with its commitment as an ECB Premier League the Liverpool and District Cricket Competition continues to try to provide competitive and quality cricket for players at all ages and levels. In particular we are mindful of our obligation to those “older” juniors and colts playing members in our clubs who wish to develop and continue to experience representative cricket beyond the U18 landmark.

To this end there is a three game programme for the L&DCC under 21’s this season,with the first game played this week at Leigh CC. The details are as follows:

L&DCC U21 137 for 1 (22.2) Ross Zelem 60no Tyler McGladdery 45, Dane Williams 24no

North Staffs and South Cheshire U21 134 all out (44.2) Hedley Molyneux 4 for 18, Ryan Maddock 2 for 23, John Dotters 2 for 16

The Liverpool Competition Under 21s got their season off to a winning start, beating the North Staffs and South Cheshire League Academy Side.
The Staffs boys won the toss and elected to bat, putting on 59 for the first wicket.
The introduction of Hedley Molyneux (Leigh) proved decisive as he bowled 10 overs unchanged taking 4-18 as the Staffs boys struggled to assert any dominance.
Wickets fell at regular intervals with spin proving effective. Skipper Matt McKeirnan (Leigh) 1-19, Rainford left armer John Dotters 2-16 and Danny Davies (Prestatyn) 1-10 cleaned out the lower order alongside returning opening bowler from Northern Ryan Maddock (2-23).
The total of 134 was disappointing on a good Leigh pitch.
The 135 target proved too low for a talented Comp outfit. Clean hitting from openers Tyler McGladdery (Rainhill) who hit 45 and Ross Zelem (Leigh) got the home side off to a great start scoring at 7 an over from the outset. Zelem (60*) and Formby batsman Dane Williams (24*) saw the game out as the Comp team won by 9 wickets.
A great performance and plenty more to look forward to from this team in future games.
