On the evening of Wednesday 22nd February, the Lancashire League held it’s 2017 AGM in which the club were formally accepted as new members, along with Clitheroe CC and Darwen CC.
Chairman Stuart Maher commented: –
We are delighted to have been accepted into the Lancashire Cricket League, and look forward to the new challenge that lies ahead.
To have been invited to join one of the most famous cricket leagues in the world is a great achievement for our club, and is testament to the hard work of the committee and other volunteers at Great Harwood CC over the last decade and beyond.
We will miss the many friends we have made over many years in the Ribblesdale League, but look forward to the new competition the move will provide us.
We are also delighted to be a part of an exciting future for the Lancashire League as it looks to continue to expand in the coming months.
The 2017 season starts on Sunday 16th April, with our first game away at Colne. Our 2nd XI will entertain Colne at the Cliffe on the same day.
