CRICKETING teenagers have bagged a string of titles - but there’s one more that they would love to win.
The members of the all-conquering Seaton Carew Cricket Club under-17 section have enjoyed “unprecedented” success in the last two years.
They won the NYACC League (North), the Bill Chester Cup and the NYACC playoff final, effectively becoming county champions.
The success has continued this year, with the team winning the Hartlepool District Sports Council award as Team of the Year.
The same group of players has already won the North Yorkshire & South Durham Cup, and the NYSD League (North) with a 100 percent record.
Joint manager Mick Johnson said: “In all, over the past year, the team have won five trophies.”
Mick added: “I admit I am biased, I was their manager last year, and co-manage the team this year with Gareth Spence.”
But he would love to see the rising young talents lift yet another title at the Hartlepool Mail Sports Award finals.
They become the latest in a long line of excellent entries to this year’s competition but we want more people and teams to enter.
But the search for more entries continues and people have until September 13 to put forward their favourites in the Hartlepool sporting world.
