Hale Barns Third XI compete in the Cheshire County Cricket League East Division One for the fourth consecutive year in 2018.

The team finished sixth in the table last year despite remaining unbeaten home and away against second-placed Heaton Mersey, winning away at third-placed Romiley and earning a home draw versus runaway winners Stockport.

Captain Farhan Rabbani repeated the sort of form that made him 3rd XI Player of the Year in 2016 with 453 runs at an average of over 41, including a sensational century against Stockport.

However, he was pipped to the prize in 2017 by vice captain Jack Wylie, who claimed 24 wickets at an average of 13.38 and conceding 2.63 runs an over. Meanwhile, youngster Dan Martin made huge strides with the ball throughout the season and managed 19 dismissals in total to earn the Emerging Player of the Year award.
