Burnley through to the semi’s. 

After a hard fought battle which certainly was a great advert for the towns cricket Burnley came out as victors in a match that had rain, sun, wind, rainbows and the Duckworth Lewis method involved. (And finished at 8.41pm!)

LancashireLeague.coms match report stated:

Burnley beat Lowerhouse by 2 wickets at the Brooks Foundation Ground to go through to the LCB Cup semi finals. In a rain reduced 43 overs a-side game Burnley had to chase 156 for victory on the Duckworth-Lewis method after Lowerhouse had made 146-7.

Jhangir Liaqat again proved to be the match winner, taking 4-18 and then hitting an unbeaten 11 to see Burnley to victory with 7 balls to spare. Chris Bleazard top scored with 33, skipper Charlie Cottam made 23, Ben Heap 22, Paddy Martin an unbeaten 16 and Joe Hawke 15 in the Lowerhouse innings.

Jon Finch (3-26) picked up the wickets of Vishal Tripathi (11), David Brown (12) and Mick Midwood (6) and Hawke removed Chris Burton (9) and Chris Holt after the Burnley professional had hit six fours in making 54. Lowerhouse professional Dieter Klein snapped up Michael Kelly and skipper Bharat Tripathi for 11 apiece as the tension mounted. Liaqat was joined by Tom Lawson who showed a cool head in making an unbeaten 13 in a match winning stand of 23 to see Burnley through to the last four. Burnley will travel to the winners of the Ormskirk – Denton West tie on Sunday August 21st.

Great Saturday for the House

Strong wins for the First and Second team yesterday versus Accrington. 

The second team bowled Accrington out for 58 with whopping figures of 8-17 for JP (more to follow on this game later in the week in Stans sermon)

The first team put in a strong performance with the highest total in a Lancashire League innings without anyone scoring a half century (not through lack of trying as a collection wouldn’t have gone a miss). Paddy Martin tried his best being on 47 on the last ball with a ramp shot down to fine leg, only for it to not reach the boundary and only get 2 ending on a Lancashire League best 49*

Lancashire Leagues match report said:

Lowerhouse created a new record for a Lancashire League highest innings score that doesn’t contain a half century, beating their own record of 269-7 at Colne in 2014 in beating Accrington by 135 runs at The Brooks Foundation Ground. Lowerhouse made 275-6 with Paddy Martin making a league best unbeaten 49 from 66 balls with four fours. Skipper Charlie Cottam’s 48 came from 53 balls and included seven fours. Jon Finch made a run a ball 45 with four fours and two sixes and professional Dieter Klein made 38 from 27 balls with five fours to pass 500 runs for the season. Ben Heap’s 56 ball 35 contained three fours, Joe Halstead made 19 and Chris Bleazard an unbeaten 18. The only man to miss out was Joe Hawke who was run out after being involved in a dropped bat incident. Jacob Clarke took 3-52 and professional Ockert Erasmus 2-57 but Jimmy Hayhurst (0-94 from 14 overs) and Keiren Grimshaw (0-67 from 8 overs) went wicketless. Dominic Stuart removed Accrington skipper Graeme Sneddon before a run had been scored and Klein cleaned up Stuart Crabtree (5) at 16 but Grimshaw and Erasmus put on a rapid 87 with the amateur making 54 from 38 balls with seven fours and a six. Accrington couldn’t match Lowerhouse’s consistency though with Erasmus falling for 25 and only number eleven Ramiz Hussain (13 not out) and number nine Toc Hussain (11) making double figures in Accrington’s 140 all out. Hawke made up for his misadventure with the bat by taking 3-7 from 5 overs, Paddy Martin took 2-7 and Finch 2-25. Curiously Lowerhouse were also the only side to win at home on the day

Jerry Dawson Obituary

The club are sorry to report the sudden passing away of former club stalwart Jerry Dawson whilst on holiday in the Isle of Man. Jerry was a member of the committee during the Jack Hayes era, and was effectively volunteer steward. Managing Director Matthew Stansfield paid tribute to the contribution that Jerry made to the club “Undoubtedly during those many years, probably 2 decades, the emphasis for the club was financial survival. Without the efforts of people like Jerry at that time, the club would have gone under. We are only where we are today because of the sterling work of those volunteers at the time. We offer our deepest sympathy to the family and as a club we take some comfort that the family still attend matches for both the 1XI and the juniors where Jerry’s grandson Alfie plays for the u13s”

Uproar at the Burnley vs Lowerhouse game.. (in 1937)

Thanks to Anne Cochrane, for putting this together.

Uproar at a Burnley v Lowerhouse game –   but this happened on  26 June 1937.

The Club has recently, gratefully, received from Joe Waterworth the hand-written Committee Minutes book from May 29 1934 to January 2nd 1941.

On 29th June 1937 it was moved that “Helm Spencer be left out of the team through his conduct in the Burnley game.“ This is what lay behind that decision to discipline the team captain.

Incidentally, Helm Spencer was a significant figure at the club for many years, and there is a family connection to this day.  A promising county career as a seam bowler was cut short by WW1.  After the war he played for Llanelli and qualified for Glamorgan. He played for Glamorgan in 1925 and 1926 then returned to the League as a pro from 1927-29,  in 1930  he played for Lowerhouse as a pro , and then as an amateur  until 1937 remaining involved with the club for many years afterwards. At the time of the incident  he was nearing the end of his days as a player, and in his forties.

A scanned copy of the full match report is attached, and although it is worth the effort of reading, this is a summary of events.
