WITH the football season well and truly underway and the autumn leaves beginning to drop, Ribblesdale High School Under 12s’ cricket team finished off another remarkable season as they were crowned Lancashire champions.

The final was played at Old Trafford, against the highly-rated Merchant Taylors School from Merseyside.

To reach the final of such a prestigious competition is an outstanding achievement, but after edging past the formidable Manchester Grammar School in the semi-finals, the side was brimming with confidence.

With some excellent individual performances from captain Harry Lang, Eli “Swanny” Smith and Lancashire Schoolboys’ Joe Noone, along with an excellent fielding display, ensured the trophy was coming to the Ribble Valley school for the very first time.
