Lowerhouse have lost the services of first teamer Stuart Grant who will team up with Hasan Khan at Sale CC.

‘Unfortunately for Stuart due to transport and work difficulties he was finding it difficult to attend key training and this was affecting his position in the team. He has been a great lad to have at the club and we wish him well’

Incoming – Matt Collins formerly of Littleborough. Matt is a young lad who is a genuine all rounder and joins us having spent time with the Queensland Academy. We are very pleased to have him choose us as a number of other clubs were under consideration.
