Your memories of your debut for Littleborough?
I can’t recall the opposition but remember well the dressing room banter and welcome for the lad from the “Chip Shop” league.
Your favourite game and why?
Walsden Wood cup semi-final victory, Pro had an unbelievable knock with support from the Legend “leave it to me lads” Gar Hunter.
Your favourite away ground and why?
Middleton, always looked a picture. Decent crowd and good deck.
The best professional played against?
Carl Hooper, Wernerth
The best amateurs played against?
Melbourne Austin, John Punchard, John Macauley, Wkt Keeper, John Henderson, Mark Hooson, Dave Norris
Favourite on the field memories?
Chris Dearden home game, had a health and very personal issue, the lads responded with sympathy and obvious empathy as he carried his bat to see the lads to victory with the Japanese flag flying high as a mark of respect!
How about off the field?
Every game ending signalled the start of celebration, banter and general raucous behaviour, led by our natural cheerleader Miskella, Skipper Jones, and the troops, play hard, fight harder and party always. A great club who never knew or accepted they were beaten.
Joined from Walshaw in the BDCA, with good all rounder stats, leg spin and useful right-hand bat, but sadly failed to handle the step up in quality, but hopefully contributed something towards the best dressing room moral ever personally experienced. I returned after only one season to the Bolton Association, League Winner, Regular League rep honours also part of Ramsbottom Lancashire League winning side and played on in the Cheshire County League before calling time in 2014. Despite the worst personal season’s performance, I am proud to have represented the club, without doubt the best winning team culture I played with, and now proudly live with my partner and two step-daughters in the Littleborough area.
Respect and Thanks
