Longridge’s 5th team have made it through to the Wearing Trophy final for third year in a row.

The side produced a fine display with the bat as they defeated Wyre CC in the semi final of the Wearing Trophy on Saturday.

Asked to bowl first Smith rotated his young bowling attack looking for a breakthrough.

Wyre put on 103 for the first wicket before the introduction of the experienced Rick Clegg and Elliot Taylforth brought a collapse that saw Wyre crumble to 157 all out.

Taylforth then scored an unbeaten 62 with the bat supported brilliantly by young Ben Fletcher who made 26.

Clegg also played a huge part with the bat making 43 not out as Longridge passed their target with 10 overs to spare. Congratulations to Chris Smith and his young squad on such a great achievement.
