3rd XI Captain: Matty Wallace
I’d just like to start by reflecting on the 2019 season which, for the most part, was a very successful and enjoyable season, with us finishing second in the league as well as winning the Hanson Cup.
However, with a very young squad we just fell away in the last few games which was slightly disappointing.
Throughout the year, everybody who was selected provided vital contributions or a game changing moment somewhere along the way.
Going into the 2020 season being promoted into the West Lancashire Premier division I will be looking for more of the same this year.
I feel the promotion into the top league is a great thing, not just for the third team but for the club as well, as it means we can continue to test ourselves at the best level available to us, which can only help to improve us all as cricketers.
I’m hopeful that some of the lessons we learnt as a team in 2019 will help us to keep our focus all the way through the 2020 season, allowing us to be in the hunt for silverware again!
Finally, I’m really looking forward to getting back out there this summer as captain again, but more than that, I’m looking forward to getting back out there will all the lads and us all just enjoying playing cricket with our mates, which is one thing I want everyone involved with the third team and club to do.
All the best to everyone at HCC in 2020. Let’s make it a season to remember.
