Academy toast­ing dou­ble suc­cess

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - JU­NIOR CRICKET

MACCLESFIELD Cricket Academy achieved suc­cess in both Un­der-11 and Un­der-13 tour­na­ments at the an­nual Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day Sixes Fes­ti­val at Pott Shrigley CC, which was again well hosted by the home club.

The Un­der-11 com­pe­ti­tion com­prised a round robin league in which Macclesfield re­mained un­beaten, cul­mi­nat­ing in an ex­cit­ing fi­nal game against a strong Alder­ley Edge side with Macclesfield just squeez­ing home thanks to some tight bowl­ing in the fi­nal overs.

In the Un­der-13 com­pe­ti­tion, Macclesfield topped the league and faced a re­silient Bolling­ton side in the fi­nal.

Macclesfield’s to­tal of 52 off the five overs al­lowed proved just out of Bolling­ton’s reach.

Some ex­cel­lent cricket was played all day in the right spirit and in beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings.
