Watson Ramsbottom Director & Solicitor Stuart Maher created his own piece of Ribblesdale Cricket League history this past weekend, becoming only the 7th amateur player in the league’s history and the first since 1990 to take all ten wickets in a single innings.
Stuart took all ten wickets at a cost of just 43 runs, and becomes the first amateur player at his club, Great Harwood Cricket Club, to achieve the feat.
But even that wasn’t enough to be sure of winning the match, and Great Harwood were indebted to an innings from Watson Ramsbottom Solicitor Patrick Swanney to see them home to victory.
Cricket plays a big part in the lives of a number of the employees of the practice and fellow Director and Solicitor John Swanney also featured in the match, which was the last fixture of the season.
