Local cricket is approaching the midway point of the 2021–22 season and sees Lennox Head playing strongly across all four senior grades.
The Lennox Pirates are second in the region’s premier competition, the LJ Hooker league, second in the Coastal League, first in third grade, and equal first in fourth grade.
In last Saturday’s LJ Hooker game, The Pirates travelled to Murwillumbah and had a convincing win against the home side at the Megan Crescent ground.
Sent in to bat, the home side was restricted to 7/88. B Kernaghan was the best of the Lennox bowlers with 2/8 off six overs. Lennox chased down the score in the 25th over and finished with 4/88. Murwillumbah’s A Melville stood out with the ball, finishing with 3/9 off his six overs.
Cudgen leads the first-grade ladder and is undefeated this season.
In the second-grade Coastal League the Byron Bay Cricket Club is dominating the competition and remains undefeated after nine rounds. Lennox Head are in second place after conceding just one game for the season. Bangalow sits in third place ahead of Tintenbar-East Ballina.
In third-grade Lennox Head leads the table with a one-game advantage over Alstonville. Tintenbar-East Ballina and Bangalow round out the top four.
In fourth-grade Lennox Head and Tintenbar-East Ballina are battling for the top spot while Byron Bay and Ballina Bears fill out the competition.
