House win the first ever preliminary

Lowerhouse won the first ever Worsley Cup preliminary round beating Rawtenstall at home today.
After a districtive spell by Keith Roscoe, we were 22 for 5 but a solid 50 partnership from Ocki and Lewis Marsden stopped the rot. House finished on 211 for 8 with Ocki getting his maiden Lowerhouse ton (101*) and Blez hitting an explosive 56.
In reply Rawtenstall were bowled out for 79 and House now face East Lancs in the first round proper.

Twenty20 sponsorship spot up for grabs!

We have one spot left for sponsoring one of our Twenty20 home matches in 2017. The match is played on a Friday night and is notorious for getting upwards of 500+ people on the ground – a great advertising opportunity for the local area of Burnley. Dubbed as “Burnleys’ Biggest Beer Garden” this is a great opportunity that doesn’t come up very often – feel free to get in touch with Matthew on the details above or via social media.
