Record Breakers

Sun 25 Jun 2023
On any normal cricket playing day, thirteen year old Ethan Kite (Pictured), scoring 62 not out or a diminutive fourteen year old leg spinner taking five wickets, would catch the eye, but Saturday June 10th will go down in the annals of Clifton Cricket Club history for entirely different reasons. 

Even a record opening stand of 264, congratulations to both young men, had to take second place to a quite astonishing batting performance from sixteen year old Matthew Howarth (Pictured) who’s twenty four ‘fours’ and eight ‘sixes’ contributed to a final score of 187 off just 130 deliveries, overhauling the record set by Chinthaka Jayasinghe in 2007 when the Sri Lankan professional scored 181 off 80 balls.

There’s in excess of a century of history between Darcy Lever and Clifton, mainly from many years shared in the Bolton Association, but for Matthew, June 10th 2023 on the scenic Darcy ground will always be the day that he became Clifton’s all time individual run scorer and shared an all time record opening partnership, both of which may take many more years to surpass. 

Well done young man!
