An image from Lowerhouse's innings.
Lowerhouse have been pipped for the Lancashire League championship by just one point by Rawtenstall. However, the West End club were still celebrating on Sunday. Captain Alan Holden was presented with the Holland Cup awarded to the club finishing second. It is the club’s highest position in 120 years of cricket and the first major trophy to arrive at the West End. Sunday’s last match decider saw Lowerhouse beat Rawtenstall but it was not enough to force a championship play-off. They needed to bowl Rawtenstall out for the vital bonus point, but their rivals closed the door and Lowerhouse captured just six wickets.
