Under 11’s crowned 2017 Champions!
Tintwistle Cricket Club last won a cup at Junior Level in 1990. This success was the Under 17’s Knock Out Cup (Compstall Centenary Cup). The last Under 13’s victory was way back in 1978. As a result, today’s victory in the Under 11’s is hugely significant. 2 years into a 5-year plan that is focused on player development and we have achieved this amazing success. We are tremendously fortunate to have Richard Harris co-ordinating Junior development. A fantastic coach who develops players through encouragement and involvement. We also have a committed network of volunteers and coaches driving us forward. Thanks to everyone’s hard work we played superbly well today and there were standout performances by every one of our talented young cricketers. Our Tornadoes have made a lot of people extremely proud. A final thought on our brilliant Junior Parents! What a great bunch! Always there and always encouraging (and now bringing great snacks!!).
