Weekend Preview & Teams 28th & 29th June 08

It’s another Saturday home game for Lowerhouse as we entertain East Lancs at Liverpool Road this coming weekend.

House are without Chris Benbow, Jon Finch and Jonny Russell who are replaced by Scott Hope, Paddy Martin and Matthew Marquis.

East Lancs who sit 8th in the league table have suffered a double blow with the news that impressive professional Shannan Stewart has returned to New Zealand to undergo treatment on a persistent groin problem. Stewart has yet to be replaced and at the time of going to press no sub professional had been named.  Opening bowler, Nas Iqbal has also left to take up the role as pro at Ribblesdale League outfit, Blackburn Northern.

Veteran batsmen Dave Pearson leads the way with the bat having scored 177 runs at 22.12 with a best of 43.  With the ball, 22 year old paceman Sid Patel has captured 15 wickets at 25.2 with a best of 6-56.

On Sunday the 2nd XI are in cup action with a semi final against Nelson at Liverpool Road.  Please come along and support the 2s as they look to build on last seasons runners up spot in the junior league!
