WITH two of their junior teams winning cup finals, Weaverham Cricket Club really did enjoy a super Sunday.

Senior cricket may have endured a tough period of late, but the performances of the under 13s and under 15s show the future could be bright for the Russets.

The younger side beat Christleton before their older clubmates saw off Toft to ensure both trophies came home to Weaverham.

Archie Lightfoot starred for both teams, making 50 with the bat for the under 13s and picking up two wickets with the ball for the under 15s.

Lightfoot’s half-century held Weaverham’s innings together as they batted first against Christleton, with Finn Dowling and Louie Armstrong contributing 13 and 10 respectively.

Jack Leonard then cut loose in the final overs to ensure Weaverham reached a good total of 98-7 before the bowlers set about defending the total with aplomb.

Leonard took three wickets, with Joe Littler taking two plus one each for Dowling and Ollie Carney as Christleton closed on 87-8.

The victorious under 13s team

The under 15s were asked to field first and the bowlers immediately put the squeeze on Toft’s batsmen.

They restricted Toft to a score of 85 in 20 overs and with the bat, Jonathan Simpson was outstanding.

He opened the innings and carried his bat with a fine unbeaten 42 to anchor what turned out to be a comfortable run chase.

Bobby Taylor and Declan Lamb provided Simpson with excellent support, scoring 18 and 24 not out respectively.

All of this combined meant Weaverham reached their target in just 12 overs for the loss of two wickets.
