2023 U18 CHAMPIONSHIP

The destination for the 2023 Under-18 Keighley Cup Committee Championship has been settled in unfortunate manner after the Oakworth vs Gt Horton Church T20 became a victim of the atrocious July weather.

Bradford & Bingley are in consequence the 2023 Champions with 6 wins and 2 cancellations giving them 20 points, 2 clear of Gt Horton Church and 3 clear of Oakworth. Congratulations to the Bees on their first UAJCA Championship adding to their earlier Hargreaves Cup win and their near miss Play-Off appearance against Skipton in the U15 League.

2023 U15 CHAMPIONSHIP Having won the Hargreaves Memorial Cup, Bradford & Bingley were looking for the "double" whilst Skipton were keen to keep the Championship Trophy they had won so brilliantly in 2022. Skipton openers Joe Birks and Amos Patchett strode out confidentlybut Amos was soon back in the hutch for 1 caught for Hassan Khan. His replacement Joe Horton settled to his task and runs flowed at almost six per over. The two Joes carried the score on to 62 when Captain Birks was bowled by Ibrahim for 30 from his 38 balls. The fifty had come up in just 36 balls. A second wicket fell son afterwards and t'other Joe was also caught for Ibrahim for 26 [23 balls] at 67-3. Ryan Lee added one and at 68-4 the match was evenly poised. James Feeney was resolute and did a job shepherding the middle order. He fell for 21, bowled by Judson. The score was 91-5 but then three wickets fell for just 1 run as the two Charlies Palmer & Judson got to work. The score was 92-8 with a different palour on the Skipton support. But they reckoned without 2022 u13 Cricketer-of-the-Year Noah Kennedy who smashed 23 from just 11 balls to propel the tally to 120-8. Ibrahim returned 2-21 with the outstanding Judson gabbing 2-1-8-3. Unbeaten Bradford & Bingley also lost an early wicket with Temperton [0] out bowled by Horton at 8-1. Ibrahim Khan and Noah Thirkill compiled the rebuild well adding 50 runs before Ibrahim was castled by Noah Kennedy for 34 runs [39 balls]. Thirkill was immediately caught so 58-3 became 59-4 with Hassan Khan taken by keeper Birks for Kennedy'. Charlie Palmer remained solid but began to run out of partners and the score subsided to 86-7 thanks to a brace for James Feeney. The overs ran out at 96-8 with a jubilant Skipton team the winners by 24 runs, having retained the Championship.
2023 U13 CHAMPIONSHIP Gt Horton Church are used to setting the bar in UAJCA competitions, and they did it again last Sunday at Park Avenue ion the Play-Off Final of the under-13 Championship.

Their win ame off the back of their first inngs when their batsmen racked up 155 runs in just 17 overs when they opted to declare with just 5 wickets down. Opponents Skipton found gtheir bowlers unable to cope well with the Bradford side's batmen, particularly Ayan Ahsan [28], Zaid Khan [27], Subhaan Ghaffar [24] and Hashim Khokhar [25]. For Skipton Aniq Tabassum battled hard taking 2-27 in his 3 overs and there were wickets for Daniel Bray and Joseph Kenndy.

The pressure from GHC was relentless with only Tom McCormick [18] and Jack Lovell [10] making any inroads. The two Hashims Khokhar abd Hussain each grabbed a brace of wickets and with 1 each for Syed Hussain, Hamza Mahmood and Ayan Munawar it was the inevitable result odf a 76 run win for GHC. Well done to them and their coaches.
