The first round of games in the Clitheroe and District Cricket League’s round robin cup have taken place.

The league has bought a new trophy for the cup competition and named it in honour of long serving secretary and local cricket stalwart Fred Booth who sadly passed away last year.

In the first game it was St James against Chipping Ramblers. Chipping posted 78-7 with two wickets apiece for Blackburn and Dean.

St James made 79-5 and got home with a couple of overs to spare, Sharp marking an encouraging debut with 33 not out.

In the other game Low Moor batted first and made 101-6 with Paul Gaskell retiring on 30. Calderstones won by five wickets with Simon Gorton retiring on 31.
