Sunday 3rd December saw the U17’s travel to the Concord Leisure Centre in Sheffield to tackle the first leg of the annual North Midway League – one of the players’ favourite fixtures of the season!
With several counties unfortunately missing due to Shires League clashes, the day was not as keenly contested as usual but hopes were high that Team Leicestershire could make a strong start to their campaign to win the League for the second consecutive year.
