Stans Chairmans Column


Members and spectators have made many positive comments about the new Tannoy system at the club. The system which was installed by Opus was financed by club benefactor and president Harry Brooks and we thank Harry for that investment in the club.   

Those present at the first match in which it was used will have noticed that there was an announcing error as the opening batsmen walked to the crease involving a misidentification of a batsman. I can reassure members that this was no book being run on how long it would take for an announcing error and scorer Whispering Graham Martin has been cleared of any involvement in a betting scam.


I can only apologise for the lack of coverage this season but I will catch up.

Cup competitions

The under 9s have reached The Lancashire Junior League final and will play the winners of the Longridge / East Lancs semi-final which I have to say is taking an eternity to be played

The u11s have reached the LCB finals day which will take place at Highfield CC on Sunday September 10th. Our semi-final is against Brooklands CC and starts at 12.45.

The u13s reached the LCB quarter final where they lost to the ever strong Longridge CC. They will also be our opponents in the Lancashire Junior League final to be played at the turn of the month.

The under 15s lost to Nelson in the LJL semi final.   

The u19 Wrenegades finished 3rd in their group and we await further news as to whether we have progressed or not
