AN old favourite was remembered at a special memorial single wicket competition at Padiham Cricket Club.

Ibby’s Single Wicket Trophy, in memory of James Ibbotson who tragically died just over two years ago, was won by Peter Shirtcliffe, beating pro Chris Holt 3-1 in the semi-final before overcoming 14-year-old Toby Muldoon 2-1 in the final. Despite the atrotious weather the competition was played in a tremendous spirit.
