The Ribble Valley’s young cricketers of primary school age and above came together at Longridge Cricket Club on to celebrate a successful 2015 season.

With 17 Ribble Valley cricketers playing for Lancashire, and the Under 15 side winning the Ainsworth Trophy to become county champions, this really has been a year of achievement for the District.

County first team cricketer Tom Bailey, recently awarded a new contract by Lancashire, was on hand to present trophies to members of all four District teams for batting, bowling and fielding performances and Player of the Year.

The Players of the Year were from Salesbury CC (Adam Wharton at Under 11), Ribblesdale Wanderers CC (Josh Stamford at Under 13), Clitheroe CC (Charlie Dewhurst at Under 15) and Ribble Valley Ladies (Hannah Mansell) while Read CC, Longridge CC and Chatburn CC were also well represented.
