Cricket season kicks off to a bumper start

The cricket season has started with a bang with all 14 local sides in action at the weekend.

Our photographic team -including Josh Vosper and Stefan Willoughby - were at the games between Leyland and St Annes in the Northern League; White Coppice and Penwortham 2nds in the Palace Shield; and Brinscall 1sts and Read 2nds in the Houldsworth Ribbledale League.

We weren’t able to get all the pictures next to the match reports so we’ve produced a ‘cricket extra’ to bring you as much of the action as possible.

We’ll continue to get to as many games as possible but if take photos yourself then email them to
