Under 17s Match Report

Author: Marc Wilkinson, 09/07/18

Although Hazel Grove Under 17s have already progressed to the cup final, their actual league season only got under way today and Hadfield were the visitors to Wesley Park.

A humid evening with a touch of light drizzle at times was very different to the weather that the other Grove juniors and seniors had experienced over recent weeks.

Hadfield batted first and found it difficult to score runs against the opening attack of Wilkinson and Burnard as only 16 runs came from the first six overs and the loss of one wicket.

Their withdrawal saw Hadfield up the pace before the introduction of Simpson set them back as he finished with the excellent figures of 4 wickets for 7 runs off his 4 overs, one of these wickets a quite brilliant one handed catch from Burnard.

Hadfield innings eventually stuttered to 82 for 8.

Grove took no time at all to knock this off as Wilkinson 33 not out and Burnard 33 hit any loose balls before Burnard succumbed to a caught and bowled just before Grove crossed the line.

Higson joined Wilkinson and Grove ended 83 for 1 off just 10 overs for a straight forward 9 wicket victory.

No game Wednesday as fixtures have been moved to accommodate the World Cup Semi Final.

Next week we have Mottram away on Monday the 16th of July and Birch Vale at home on Thursday the 19th July - both of these are expected to be tough games so the lads need to up their concentration levels slightly from where they were at times today in the field today.

Mickey is away and I am looking after that week

The team for those two games will be from our under 17s and Under 15s players,

1.Joe Wilkinson
2. Mike Burnard
3. Kian Simpson
4.Colm Nunn
5. Callum Hewitt
6. Euan Melia
7. Joel Mathieson
8. Charlie Higson
9. Jack Hodkinson

The remaining two places will be made up of our under 13s on a rotation to be arranged. I will be in touch but if anyone isn't available, can they contact me.
