1978: The last minute replacement Stan, is the winner!

We’ve had a number of paper cuttings form the Burnley Express sent in by friend of the club.. He’s is great at finding the old, unusual finds and we’re starting off this week run of 4 different cuttings with a great story.

Stan looks to have been called up on Saturday morning, either because Rusty slept in, or couldn’t be bothered and went on to get a quickfire 20 not out and win the game against Rawtenstall.

The full scorecard for the game is here
