RAINFORD Cricket Club’s junior section have just completed their most successful season in the club’s history.
The recent presentation evening celebrated the success of all the age groups from under-9 to under-18.
The under-11s, under-13s and under-15s all won their respective A Divisions in the Southport & District Junior League, a feat never before achieved in the League.
The under-13s were undefeated in the Merseyside Youth Cricket Competition and won their Sunday morning league group.
The under-15s, semi-finalists in the LCB knockout competition, were also joint-winners of the U15 Southport & District League Cup with Mawdesley, the silverware shared due to bad weather.
The under-18s finished in second place to Skelmersdale in the under-18s league.
Pride of place at the Jubilee Recreation Ground goes to the under-11s who won an incredible five competitions. They were successful in the St Helens Indoor Cup, the Southport & District U11 League, the Southport & District U11 Cup, the Wigan League U11 Pairs Competition and the Wigan League U11 Cup.
In addition the club has provided 19 boys and girls at St Helens District representative level as well as six Lancashire county players – Dan Harrison, Ellie Threlkeld, Cameron McCulloch, Becky Cline, Joe Noctor and John Dotters.
