End of Junior Season 2011.....

The LSVCC Junior cricket season ended on Wednesday night (28th Sept)
with a pairs cricket competition held on the main wicket. The winners
were Jake Richards and Neve Palmer (14 runs off 2 overs) with joint
second place on 13 runs taken by Luke Manning partnering Benjamin
Smith and Joseph Bates batting with brother Tommy.

The evening concluded with annual prize giving with trophies awarded
to James Price (Year 4 and under) and Sam Edgeley (Year 5 and over) as
the most improved cricketers of the year, as voted for by the junior
members. Congratulations to all players for another great season and
thanks to the parents for their ongoing support. Coaching sessions
have run for over 5 months this year, with an average of 25 children
attending each week......remarkably only one week lost to rain !! Some
of the juniors have represented the village team so congratulations to
them and watch out you senior members!

Big thanks again to Roy Palmer and Richard Smith who have run the Juniors this year, and also to the many parents and young helpers. We all look forward to next season !!
