93rd J. W Lees Sponsored Worsley Cup Final – Sunday 5th August 2018 wickets pitched 12.30pm. The Directors, Players & Supporters of Lowerhouse Cricket Club are delighted to have the opportunity to host the 93rd Worsley Cup Final 2018 versus Burnley Cricket Club at the Brooks Foundation Ground. In 2004 Lowerhouse hosted our first and only final some said it was arguably the best in modern times.
“A huge crowd paid record receipts of £4951.50 to watch the 79th Worsley Cup Final. Everything was on sale from curries to CDs. “
“This was no ordinary Cup Final. The atmosphere generated by the watching crowd excelled anything that has ever preceded it and will be the benchmark for future final”
Secretary Frank Entwistle said:
“In 2004 we raised the bench mark for future Final’s but for 2018 we intend to take the organisation and delivery to a totally different level and hopefully weather permitting we can ensure this Final is the real showcase the Worsley Cup Final deserves to be…
We learnt a lot from 2004 and feel as a club we have become more organised and more than capable of the delivery of larger events, it’s paramount to us that everyone comes and enjoys the day.
We promise the people who come, will get value for money, that supporters and player’s alike win or lose will know they have been part of a special day.
Some information is already available and we will continually update as more arrangements are made once the club has met and finalised details with the league and Sponsors”
