Hayman bags a brace in Lancs win
5:54pm Tuesday 13th August 2013 in Sport
BURNLEY’S Foster’s Worsley Cup winner Colne Hayman had a week to remember as he helped Lancashire Under 19s to an impressive victory on their travels.
The 18-year-old, who was part of the Burnley side that beat Haslingden to claim one of the biggest prizes in league cricket on Sunday, had been in action for the Red Rose outfit earlier in the week.
And he once again impressed during the game with Warwickshire at Birmingham’s King Edwards School.
The pace ace, the fastest bowler either professional or amateur in the Foster’s Lancashire League, was used as first change by Lancashire skipper Ross Zelen and took two wickets in quick succession to remove Matthew Lamb and then the stonewalling Mark Best on his way to figures of 2-35 from 12 overs.
Liam Hurt, Jake Houson and Ben Saunders also claimed twick wickets each, while former Clitheroe and Darwen spinner Tim Le Breton picked up 1-12 from his 4.3 overs as Warwickshire were bowled out for 159 an 57.3 overs.
Lancashire were strong favourites to chase that total down and they started well with Steven Lucas and Zelen putting on 78 for the first wicket before the latter was trapped leg before for 32.
Lowerhouse star Jonny Whitehead was next in but the prolific batsman suffered a rare failure and departed for a five-ball duck.
Colne’s Adam Holt hit 33 before falling when Lancashire were eight runs short of their target and he was followed back into the pavilion by Lucan for an excellent 69, Dean Morris, Houson and Brooksbottom’s former Enfield wicketkeeper Ash Gowers as the Red Rose mini-wobble continued.
But Le Breton and Hurt steered them over the line with seven wickets down.
