Top Youth Performances Of The Week - 2nd May 2014
As well as featuring our favourite club performances we are dedicating an article to the youth sides and their highlights every week.
Most noteworthy was George Haley's record setting 208 not out in T20. This is shown below with an excellent picture of him stood next to the scoreboard, scoring almost all of his team's runs.
Sidcup CC also appear with their U13s winning a close-fought match, with the opposition scoring 90 for nine, them getting to 91 for six with a ball to spare.
There is a wide selection of clubs giving the youth sides some coverage, whether it be praise or scores and reports - which is something we are absolutely delighted to see.
Back in the days of Cricket World magazine, a young chap called Ian Bell (pictured left - I wonder what happened to him?) won a Cricket World youth award.
Another dramatic match over at Ashton on Mersey CC saw a last-ball result of 288 v AOM 285, described as a brilliant game by the club.
Danielle Hazell and Charlotte Edwards also make an appearance playing cricket with youth players at Vane Road School tweeted by Durham Cricket Board.
Some brilliant pictures were also attached, including a team posing after winning their first game, and a girl taking part in the youth cricket for Elworth CC.
