Good luck to ex- Lowerhouse amateur Dave Bartholomew, who will travel to Australia next month with England Seniors Cricket.

The side beat Australia 3-0 this summer and now head Down Under for the return series.

Dave ‘Barty’ Bartholomew came to the UK from Trinidad in 1971 as an 18 year old to play rugby union at Coventry and he later moved to play league as a professional at Keighley. He played for Lowerhouse in the 1981-82 season scoring 231 runs in all competitions. He has played competitive cricket in the Northern Premier League since 1984 scoring almost 10,000 runs and taking over 400 wickets at an average of under 18.

He continues to play league cricket and also represents Lancashire at 50+ and 60+ levels.
