Lancaster Under 10s cricket team ended the season with a convincing win against a talented Shireshead side last week.

Shireshead batted first and were knocked back by two early wickets from Ellie Parkinson.

Lancaster continued to take some excellent catches and some late wickets from captain Jacob Orr reduced Shireshead to 40 runs.

Lancaster’s batting got off to a flyer with Josh Sparks and Parkinson putting on 41 runs with Josh hitting two consecutive sixes.

Orr and Jake Alderson put on 28 together to leave Lancaster worthy winners on 89.

Ben Simm said: ‘It’s a great way to finish as the team have really enjoyed their cricket this season and we can’t wait for next year.”
