Old Trafford – My thoughts – Stan Heaton

LCB CUP FINAL It was very sad that Sunday’s weather made for a dreadful conclusion to what was a day of anticipated thrill and skill. The play that took place, albeit only 9 overs, showed to us that the standard of league cricket in Lancashire is something that we can...

Heaps of Runs and Records

Blez Week – Day 6 – A Game to Remember

‘Game to remember’ Rawtenstall versus Lowerhouse Sept. 16th, 1990 Most games to remember are characterised by either exciting finishes or extraordinary feats of batting or bowling. Although this finale to the 1990 Lancashire League season produced 3 fine innings, it will be remembered largely by the statisticians for the records...

Blez Week – Day 5 – Interview Part 5

I’ve stated that because of their lack of patience and attention, millennials and then the children of millennials will turn local cricket into a 20-20 competition in the fullness of time. You’re a teacher and better placed than me, am I too pessimistic as a 50 over fuddy duddy?  ...
