Tierney Comes of Age
Tuesday, 18 July 2017

They say a week is a long time in Politics, it seems that it’s even longer in the world of cricket.  James Tierney seems to have come such a long way in the last seven days. From a useful prospect on the periphery of the first team he seems to have now enhanced his reputation.

Flashback to the 6th May v Micklehurst at Towncroft and Chippy was down to bat at number 9, and second change bowler. On Friday night he opened the bowling and came in at number 4 and ripped apart the Saddleworth bowling with 38 off a mere 18 balls. He must be slipping , as the previous night he smashed the same score off just 16 balls against Littleborough in an Under 19’s match.   

Seconds Reach the Burton Cup Final
Wednesday, 12 July 2017

Whilst the focus has been largely on the first team’s unbeaten run in the league, the second team have also remained unbeaten and on Saturday reached the final of the Burton Cup. As the sun shone on Towncroft a reasonable crowd had assembled as the Greenfield team took to the field as the bowling team.  Opening the batting for Middleton was the hard hitting batsman Reece Jones and the up and coming youngster Leighton Le Carpentier. Leighton fresh from representing Lancashire East under 17’s had clearly caught the eye of the County selectors not only for his ability with the bat but also his agility as a wicket keeper. Indeed both I and the Lancashire selectors are watching closely the development of Leighton as a keeper and hopefully will get the chance to see him behind the sticks on a more regular basis.

Lancs Calls for Midd Youth
Monday, 10 July 2017

The great work being done at Middleton Cricket Club in promoting the youth got further recognition in the week. Three players were chosen to represent Lancashire Under 17’s East in a round robin tournament that was played in three of the most prestigious grounds in the County. The three players concerned were James Tierney, Addison Holland and Leighton Le Carpentier  their contributions ensured a win for the Lancashire Under 17’s. James Tierney like the other two is 16 years old and already featuring for the first team and is a powerful all rounder. A fast bowler and big hitter.
