A hot day at Acre Bottom on bank holiday monday saw the 3XI take on last years league winners Clitheroe.
After winning the coin toss the Clitheroe captain chose to bat and despite an early breakthrough by Ryan Storey the visitors finished their innings on 181-8 with James Scorah (32) & George Stuart (60) the pick of the batsman.
After a well earned break the Ramsbottom openers took to the crease to chase down a challenging total and at 21-2 the bumper crowd looked on in despair.
But despite playing their third game in as many days Nick Round & Owen Collinge dug in , dispatched bad balls and produced an outstanding 90 run partnership to turn the game both hitting brilliant half centuries Nick (51) , Owen (58).
2 quick wickets followed to leave the game again on a knife edge at 167-6 but for the second week in a row Ed Lee 16* ably assisted by Chris Round 11* got the young rams side over the line to jubilant scenes from the home supporters & dressing room.
