Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - CRICKET

LANGLEY Ju­niors cel­e­brated a first sea­son in the High Peak League with a very well at­tended end of sea­son event.

Main ju­nior spon­sor Stu­art Grundy of Jor­dan Fishwick and lo­cal res­i­dents Fran Cot­ton and Craig Stevens were the guests of hon­our as the ju­niors com­peted in an in­ter club game, fol­lowed by a pre­sen­ta­tion.

Stu­art Grundy pre­sented each player with a medal and com­mented: “Jor­dan Fishwick are de­lighted to be able to sup­port Langley Cricket Club and in par­tic­u­lar their bur­geon­ing ju­nior sec­tion. It is fan­tas­tic to see so many peo­ple at the club en­joy­ing the cricket and so­cial­is­ing at this won­der­ful ground.”

Lo­cal res­i­dent and ju­nior spon­sor Fran Cot­ton fol­lowed the pre­sen­ta­tion by say­ing some words about the club.

“Over the last few years I have been de­lighted to be able to sup­port my lo­cal cricket club. It is clear to see the progress Langley has made and the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of this hard work is chil­dren and their fam­i­lies now be­com­ing an in­te­gral part of club life.

“This bodes very well for the fu­ture and I’m thrilled to be able to sup­port that.”

Sev­eral club vol­un­teers and helpers con­trib­uted on the day with a BBQ, bouncy castle and the pres­ence of a 15-foot in­flat­able woolly mam­moth be­ing the main high­lights!

A Kids ver­sus Par­ents gamed rounded off the day with the kids hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to bowl and bat against their very com­pet­i­tive par­ents. Great fun had by all.

Clos­ing the day off, ju­nior head coach Matt Stevens re­flected: “It’s been a great day for the club and for all the ju­niors and their fam­i­lies who have cho­sen Langley Cricket Club to start their crick­et­ing life. Ju­nior cricket is of para­mount im­por­tance to our club and we hope that within five years we will have ju­niors at all age groups.

“Our vol­un­teer coaches have been tire­less in the work they put in week af­ter week and their hard work is be­gin­ning to re­ally pay off. On­wards and up­wards for 2016 and be­yond.”
