by | Friday December 2nd 2022 | Cricket, The Vault

Success for our Under 17s back in August 2008 when they took the honours in the Greenhalgh Cup Final.

The Prestwich youngsters grabbed the glory at The Heys, overcoming a more experienced Denton team with a superb all-round display.

Our batting line-up all chipped in as they reached 180-9 from the 40 allotted overs. James Wharmby top-scored on 31 with Sam Holden and Tom Gibson both striking 27.

In reply, a top-notch fielding display by the lads – who held 8 catches – helped dismiss the visitors for 132.

Tom Barling took 3 for 20 and Tom Gibson and Joe Walmsley both claimed two wickets each as Prestwich prevailed with 48 runs to spare.
