15. 2015 - Division 6 Champions

A mixed year for the club on and off the field. With the folding of the FCL, we welcomed local players to help us form a 2nd XI, so both our teams were in Division 6 of the PS. However before the season began Peter Snape passed away and then in May Peter Lever, David's Dad and our former club umpire died too. Inspired to honour our former friends, we bought a pair of cast iron benches inscribed in their names and the 1st team set out on a glorious season, losing only once and claiming the Division 6 title. Jon Hargreaves beat the clubs all time high score smashing 205 to top the honours board. The 2nds enjoyed mixed fortunes, competing well and enjoying great sprit in the first year. The club also started a friendship with Thornton Cleveleys Cricket Club and instigated The Snape Trophy, a T20 series of matches which we won 3-2 over the course of some glorious summer evenings. A the end of the season, all agreed it was wise to start a second team and we should carry on with this new era for the club.
