The Under 15s had a home draw this week and were paired up against Bolton Champions Horwich St Joseph's in the quarter final of the cup. Sharples elected to bat but once the opposition began to play, it became very apparent as to why they won the cup last year. Abbas Patel, Hamza Bhaloda and Sheraz Rafique showed some glimpses of excellence, but too often Sharples took unnecessary risks. They played across the line of the ball and paid the price for it.
The runs on the board never seemed enough and despite the team’s best bowling and batting performance of the season they , couldn't prevent a cup defeat. Danieyal Dad put on a fantastic bowling performance and will hope to take more wickets next week against Essa.
