FORMER Clitheroe captain Peter Dibb is making a dramatic return to his beloved hometown club.
The 25-year-old batsman is rejoining the Ribblesdale Cricket League side just one year after leaving to go and play in the Lancashire League with Nelson.
Clitheroe celebrate their 150th anniversary next year and Dibb said it was too much of momentous occasion to miss out on.
“Clitheroe is my hometown club and I have been there since I was a kid. This is a good way for me to give something back to a club that has given me so much.
“After so long at Clitheroe I just fancied a new challenge and had always wanted to play in the Lancashire League. I’ve really enjoyed my time at Nelson and I’m sure I’ll go back there at some point in the near future but I really wanted to be part of this with Clitheroe.”
In his last season with the Chatburn Road side, Peter guided the team to the league title – just one season after finishing second bottom.
And he believes the side they are putting together for next season is more than capable of achieving something befitting of their anniversary year.
“I think we have got a good chance of doing well in the league next year. We want to make it a year to remember and winning the league title would certainly do that.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m itching to get out there.”
