To top off an amazing weekend, Lowerhouse have beaten town rivals Burnley in the semi final of the Lancashire Cup. The final will be played at Emerates Old Trafford, on Sunday 3rd September, 12.30pm start versus Ormskirk who beat Ramsbottom today in the other semi.
An amazing performance with the ball and especially in the field restricted Burnley, who lost the toss to 60-8. A classic case of #DigIn especially from Tom Lawson saw them get to 132 in the final over before being bowled out. Joe Halstead, Charlie, Dean and Joe Hawke all took outstanding catches.
Lowerhouse lost Dean Barlow early on but a 108 partnership from Ben and Ocki steadied the ship . Ben got his second half century of the weekend in a classy patient innings, falling on 63.
Renditions from the stand of “You are my Lowerhouse, my only Lowerhouse” sang loud and proud as House got the bragging rights (for a couple of weeks, until we meet in the League)
More details of the final, travel and full arrangements to follow. It will be a day to remember, watching your club play in a world class stadium, competing for the title of best in Lancashire!
Tell your family, friends, work colleague and that bloke who lives next door who you don’t really speak to.
This will definitely be a day for the History Books.
Up The House!
