SEASON AVERAGES RELEASED
Averages have now been released and can be found here ...
how did you get on?
Dave Ashton is trying to trace a cricket club that was in existence around 1940. He writes ...
"I have a cap which i think maybe from Tottington cricket club from 1940, I have attached two pics to see if you could verify it. If it is, I can gladly
donate the cap to the club.
As the cap is at my late mums and the house is being cleared in the next week to storage, would be good if you could verify
the cap before then."
Further investigation, however, shows it's unlikely to be Totts St John. Clive Brooks of TSJ writes ... "His late Mother lived in the
Bolton area and had been told by someone many years ago that it was a Tottington C.C. cap. Unfortunately there has never been a Tottington CC, just St. Johns,
St. Annes and Tottington Methodists.
I have spoken with Dave this evening and he would like to find the correct club so he can donate the cap to them so
it can create a bit of history for them. He currently lives in South Manchester and with his Mother having lived in Bolton he feels it will be a club within
Lancashire. I thought it could be Tonge but he also had connections with Edgworth CC where he was their scorer as a boy, and wondered whether Turton had a
cricket club or if Edgworth CC used to be Turton CC? Guess it could also be Todmorden, Thornham or even a club that is no longer in existence?"
If anyone can help, please contact John Barrow who will pass on the information. Thanks.
