Stoners celebrate title win with NCL dinner date

Hardingstone’s finest* celebrated another title victory at the Northamptonshire Cricket League annual dinner last Friday.
The 1st XI picked up the NCL Division 9 title – the fifth successive championship the side has won.
Skipper Jonny Grove was awarded the trophy at the County Ground-based event by former England batsman Graeme ‘Foxy’ Fowler.
Hardingstone have enjoyed double success this year with the 2nd team also gaining promotion.
Their ascent from Division 12 came under the stewardship of Craig Johnson; who has earned his side two promotions – including a title win in 2015 – in three years.
The 1st XI have now won promotion for six years in a row after finishing fourth in its the club’s very first NCL season back in 2011.
