MIDDLETON'S teenage sensation Olivia McCusker took one wicket, caught and bowled, off her five overs as she helped Lancashire Ladies beat Holland at Monton and Weaste on Wednesday, writes Steve Bott.

It was a momentous day for 16-year-old Olivia as it marked a rapid rise in her career after playing three games for the Lancashire Under 17s girls side.

Left-arm spinner Olivia, who lives in Chadderton and has been at Middleton for three years, was Middleton's only girl player when she joined the club. She won the junior side's fielding prize in her first season ahead of all the boys.

Olivia McCusker
Tuesday, 07 August 2012



TEENAGE starlet Olivia McCusker takes a giant step in her burgeoning cricketing career when she plays for the Lancashire Ladies first team on Wednesday against Holland at Monton & Weaste CC.
The youngster will probably only play a small role but her impressive bowling figures have been recognised by the first team coach who feels the experience of being involved will do her no end of good.
Also expected to be in the team is Heywood's Katy Cross, daughter of former Rochdale, Norwich City, West Ham United and Manchester City striker David Cross.
Olivia, who joined Middleton around three years ago, has now played three  times for the Lancashire under 17 Ladies.
In her first game against Derbyshire in Chesterfield Olivia bowled eight overs and took one wicket for 27 runs. She also took a catch as Lancashire won by 26 runs.
In her second game at Nelson Cricket Club against Durham Olivia bowled three overs and had one maiden taking two wickets for two runs. She also took a catch in the field. Lancashire won by eight wickets.
Against Yorkshire at Unsworth Olivia bowled nine overs with four maidens taking three wickets for eight runs. Lancashire won beating Yorkshire Ladies U17's for the first time.
