The club ran coaching sessions for young people and friendly matches.
The senior’s team entered the UCLan mid week 9 a side league and finished mid table with some fine individual and team performances from the players.
The team did not enter the main league and played in the friendly competition. With virtually a new team, the team performed well in their two matches and look forward to winter nets to be ready for the main competition next year.
The club entered the mid week league for the second year and had a very successful season and finised runners up. The team had a nailbiting finish needing to win the last match to secure second spot.
Putting the opposition into bat, the team restricted them to 81 runs in their 16 overs and Red Rose got off to a poor start losing two quick wickets, before a steady partnership got them to 35 runs and then the team lost two quick wickets and the match was in the balance. A rear guard action saw the team reach 82-5 and clinch second position.
