The 1970 season ended with a home game against a struggling Stockport side.
It was a typo end of season game with the game ending as a tame draw after the rain decided the result.
Littleborough skipper Roger Shackleton put the visitors in under threatening skies, hoping that would be the best chance of a quick victory. As it happened the exact opposite happened as the Stockport batsmen batted with grit and determination as they made a creditable 132-9 on a rain sodden wicket.
The major surprise was that Littleborough professional Duncan Carter only bowled a solitary maiden over, maybe Duncan was carrying an injury? but it certainly hampered the home sides attack. The remaining bowlers toiled hard with Jack Hunter 17.0-3-53-5 and Trevor Maden 6.0-0-29-3 the most successful.
Littleborough when they batted struggled from the outset as Stockport totally defied their lowly league position and bowled with tenacity and control troubling every batsman. The home side were in a lot of trouble as Shackleton 0, Davies 5 and Maden 9 departed in quick succession as the score reached 25-3 Hunter and Williamson steadied the ship with a valuable partnership which combined circumspect batting and controlled aggression.
Hunter departed for a dozen and Halliday 13 and Carter 14 got starts but could not support Williamson who ended on 41* and Taylor 1* when the rains came and decided the result and ended the 1970 season prematurely.
