Our 1XI had mixed results last season but secured a top-half finish in 9th meaning Premiership Top division cricket for 2024!

We hope to improve on last seasons up and down results (and weather!).

Our 2XI had a great season finishing 3rd behind the two Farnworth's in the league and reaching the semi-final of the Ramsbottom Cup loosing out to Farnworth CC, who went on to win.

A big highlight was 14 year old Mo Faiz making his 1XI debut taking 6-47! A hit for the 1XI, we would be lying saying that he wasn't missed greatly for 2XI.

The returning Lesiba Ngoepe Pro was a hit again and Ulli Bronkhorst arrived as our Amateur Overseas. We will see Ulli again in 2024!

Settle CC Away

A great club day was had as 20 odd of us got a coach up to Settle CC for a cricket match that was already called off. No weather would stop us going anyway though!

This day happened a day after England played Australia at Old Trafford in the Ashes, lets say some of our seniors were in no state to play the match if it went ahead!


Our U18s finished 6th in the league, after only 5 matches to due weather, whilst reaching the final in the cup, loosing to a good, Westhoughton side.

- U15s finished 4th and reached the final in the cup, only loosing to Farnworth SC.

- U13s won league!

- U11s came third and reached the Semi-Final in the cup.

Junior Festivals

U9s First in June...
An enormous shame we couldn’t complete the full festival due to the unfortunate rain!
Massive thanks to our sponsors Alimentary Solutions & Kumar Tutoring.
Huge thanks Krish, Farouk & all the others involved in arranging the event before hand and volunteering on the day, you know who you are, there are too many to name! As always it’s so appreciated by all at the club, THANK YOU once again! For your time, effort and money to make the event go ahead!
Thanks to the clubs that brought a team down to the event and the sponsors of each team!

Followed by U11s in July...
Congratulations to East Lancs Eagles who were victorious in our under 11s festival (Sponsored by Alimentary Solutions & Kumar Tutoring) with Bradshaw Cricket Club as runners up!
What a great day once again, so much cricket played, so much fun had! We had to contest with the weather again but we managed to have a full tournament in the end.
Thanks to all those that helped organise the event before and on the day to help the event run smoothly.
Thanks to those who sponsored the teams and the teams who took part.

Summer Camp

A successful summer camp back in August!

Even though the weather did it’s best to scupper the camp, the coaches did a great job of keeping the players entertained indoors with lots of fun and games to keep them active!

Thanks to all the coaches for their support and for those organising the camp.

We will hope to do the same again next season with some better weather.
