The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Ray Hunt: July 2016
With the superb County match in June now a fond memory along with the glorious sunshine that accompanied it, matters have turned to progress on the senior and junior playing ranks across the 10 teams in operation at the Flacca.
The 1st XI have had a tough season in Division 1 under captain Stuart Sadler as runs have been hard to come by and there is a need to string some positive results together in order to avoid relegation in the Cheshire County League.
After last year's promotion, the 2nd XI under Mark Sandford has been able to establish itself in the Premier Division of the best 12 teams in the County and are on course to maintain their status this season.
3rd XI Captain, Alex Sandland, has been pleased with the progress of his mainly junior side on a Sunday and is setting his sights on a Cup Final to match their excellent League form as they are in the running to lead their Division.
Junior sides of note include the run to the Cup final by the U9 side who beat Aston in the semi final on Tuesday with a very enthusiastic team and parental support to match. The U11 have been making good progress and are on course for a mid-table finish. The U13 have also been putting together a good Cup run to match their league form and we continue to see progression from U15 and U18 sides into the senior sides to maintain the focus on local talent in our excellent facilities.
In this very mixed weather season of ours, Tattenhall will continue to support junior cricket and you are all invited to the Junior Cricket Festival on Sunday 24th July where 8 teams of U9 and U11 cricketers will play a softball tournament starting with U9 at 9.30am-12.30pm and U11 from 1.30pm-5.30pm. We will have lots going on and food and drink available so keep your fingers crossed for the weather and we hope to see you at the Flacca on the 24th July, it should be a great day!
