Lancashire Juniors took an experienced team of eighteen players to the U9 EPSCA Northern Counties Zonal at Bridgewater School in Manchester. After initial shirt presentations to debutants Tiago Cedron, Matthew Fleming, Harrison Jones and Lewis Harrison, round 1 quickly followed with a mixed selection of county opponents. Parents and coaches, back in the team room, gasped as the wins kept stacking up until the remarkable score of 11 out of 12 was confirmed. What was in the Shredded Wheat?!
Perhaps just once in a generation the stars align and everything falls into place. On this occasion nearly all of the team were available and the motorways to the venue at Northamptonshire were moving. And as a result a magnificent result was achieved by the team after a very long and tense struggle.
