Under 11's & 12's Play at County Ground


Prior to the Help for Heroes game on Friday night, the Northants Cricket Under 11 and 12 teams took to the County Ground pitch, to take part in a mixed 25 over game.

Both sides performed really well, showing that the club has a bright future ahead. Team 1 got off to a good start, scoring some early boundaries. With a couple of players retiring after scoring 25 runs, the side were able to go through their batting line up, as they eventually finished on an impressive 146/5.

With a tough total to chase, team 2 tried to pace themselves, but lost wickets just as they were putting together a partnership. They went into the final over needing 17 runs to win and despite a great effort shown in the over, fell 6 runs shy of their target.

This was a great experience for the youngsters, with this being the first time the majority of the players have played here at the County Ground.
