02/05/08 v Penwortham away
First match of the season and an unexpected debut for young Sam Norris who played tremendously well as an unplanned substitute for Thomas Charnely who was take ill. Well done Sam. We had some good batting performances from Pat Bibby (16),  Adam Norris (13) and Robert Hewson (8) but unfortuately lost 6 wickets getting 220. Penwortham finished on 251 with the help of 29 extras despite a fine bowling spell from Robert Unsworth who finished with 3 wickets. Well done Robert!
08/05/08 v Leyland home
Despite a strong start from Pat Bibby (16) and Thomas Charnley (22) we lost 10 wickets against a strong Leyland team finishing on 233. Leyland were very good at taking quick singles and again we gave away too many extras (28) allowing them to finish on 265. Pat Bibby had 2 wickets for an excellent all round performance. Well done Pat !
16/05/08 v Croston Away
Our first victory which was thoroughly enjoyed by the team. Croston batted first and Robert Hewson,finished with 2 wickets including a diving caught and bowled. Once again we let too many extras (30) through ! Again Pat Bibby (18) got us off to a good start , and we entered the final over with a tense finish looming. All credit to Adam Russell and Jack McGarvey for seeing it through to  a total of 241 Well done team!!
06/06/08 v Harris Park away
A familiar start with Pat Bibby (12) and Jack McGarvey (6) and Adam Norris (8) getting runs (particular note was Adam`s 6- great shot Adam!) We only lost 4 wickets leaving us on 253. Good bowling from Pat Bibby with 2 wickets and Henry Broadley with 3 gave us a very strong position but once again the dreaded extras (24) gave us a close last over. A great run out off the last ball gave us a second win. Well done team !
11/06/08 v Chorley away
Batting first on a short boundary, we once again got off to a good start with Pat Bibby (14) Thomas Charnley (18) and Henry Broadley (19) all delivering with the bat. We lost 7 wickets leaving us on 249. We bowled well and only conceded 16 extras, a big improvement on other games.Henry Broadley finished with 2 wkts. Unfortunately we forgot how to field and gave Chorley victory through our mistakes. Hopefully we can tighten up in the field and reduce the extras for the rest of the season. Good luck team !!
19/06/08 v Longridge home
We managed to get a total of 247 despite losing 9 wickets. Adam Russell top scored with a breezy 25 supported by Henry Broadley with (12 )and Robert Fisher (10). Unfortunately a very poor fielding performance allowed a very strong Longridge team to amass 310. We gave away 32 extras, our worst of the season.
23/06/08 v Withnell Fold away
This game saw the debut of Emily Weetman and the second game for the even younger Sam Norris. Both performed outstandingly, congatulations and well done. A young Withnell side scored 174, with Jessica Tracey with 2 wickets and wickets for Sam and Emily, being highlights in a fielding performance which still gave away too many extras. We managed to reach a total of 263 with Adam Norris top scoring witha quickfire 20 supported by Adam Russell (12). Special note of Sam`s batting performance finishing with a total of 3. Well Done Sam!
