The season might be a few weeks away yet, but Chorley CC’s youngsters are already tasting success.

The under 13s won the regional Cricket Development Group indoor competition with a nail biting win over close rivals Euxton.

After being asked to bat, scored 79 for 4 from 12 overs.

A couple of important wickets kept the scores tight, but the bowling and fielding was excellent throughout.

And in the under 11s competition, Chorley so nearly repeated their success only for Euxton to finish on top this time.

“All in all it was an excellent display from this exciting squad despite them missing two key players,” said coach Alex Howarth. “We are sure we will push for the Under 11’s league title this coming season and I am very proud of my players.”
