1878: Lowerhouse vs Great Harwood

With Great Harwood, Darwen and Clitheroe joining the Lancashire League from 2017, we have delved into the archives and found a few gems.


Anne Cochrane has found a newspaper cutting of the match between Lowerhouse and Great Harwood in 1878 – some 12 years before the Lancashire League existed. A full cut out from the “Blackburn Standard 22nd June 1878” has also been found with this inclusion.

Both documents can be downloaded below – thanks Anne for her continued support.
