LOWERHOUSE batsman Jonny Whitehead rounded off a remarkable season on Friday night.

Whitehead, who helped the West Enders to a historic Lancashire League and Worsley Cup double, was named Under 23 Player of the Year at the league’s presentation at the Fence Gate Inn.

The 18-year-old - Lowerhouse’s own club player of the year and supporters’ junior player of the year - also picked up the Under 23 Batting Award at the dinner.

Whitehead enjoyed an outstanding season, scoring 628 runs.

He was also named the league’s Young Player of the Month for August/September after hitting 164 runs during the run-in to the title - including half-centuries against Church and in the final game of the season against Ramsbottom.

The youngster added his club successes to his county achievements with Lancashire Under 19s, where he won the Edwin Kay Trophy for the outstanding player at Old Trafford.

He hit 343 runs in five innings at an average of 85, including one century and three 50s.

• BURNLEY’S Chris Burton shared shared the Lancashire League’s Senior Wicketkeeping Award with Ramsbottom’s Tom Parton after both claimed 39 victims.
