Ribblesdale League votes for expansion

The Ribblesdale League will have a new look for 2013 after clubs last night voted to expand their competition.

With two new clubs voted in and the possibility of more to follow, the league's expansion will lead to a two-tier top flight in 2014.

A special general meeting took place and the ambitious plans to expand were carried.

Euxton were accepted into the league two months ago and the league committee has also accepted the application of Brooksbottom CC from Summerseat.

There may still be other clubs added but the plan at this stage is for each of the 20 clubs to play each other once in 2013 before the league is split into two divisions for 2014.

There will be more on this story in Monday's Lancashire Telegraph
