ACCRINGTON and Great Harwood have been crowned champions of their respective leagues - and both now want more cricket glory.
For Harwood, it was the end of a 108-year wait for the Ribblesdale League title and there were a few bad heads on Monday morning.
There were in the Accrington camp too although they have been more used to success this season as they also picked up the Worsley Cup in a fantastic double for the club.
But neither side now want to stand still - and there are already thoughts of next season.
"We were talking and now we want to do the double double," said Accrington bowler Damian Clarke, who captained the sides during some dark spells over the last few years as they finished near the bottom and battled for their existence due to financial problems.
"And knowing Dibber (captain David Ormerod) he will have us back in winter training soon!
"It hasn’t quite sunk in yet - I think it will take quite a few days and then I guess we will realise what a great achievement it is.
"I would have thought anyone was bonkers if they had said we would do the double after finishing bottom last season.
"We have been the wooden spoonists for so long and I was just hoping for a top half of the table finish so it has been a great season."
Harwood captain Allan Armer admitted, while relieved the long wait was finally over, he would have preferred to have played with both their games called off over the weekend due to the weather - including the big clash against nearest rivals Padiham.
"It does make it a bit of an anti-climax as you want to play and want someone to hit the winning run or take the vital wicket," said Armer, who has been in the first team for 16 years waiting for the title.
"But it is a huge monkey off our backs. Teams had said we didn’t have the nerve and that we have bottled it in the past and would do again but we won more games than anyone else and deserved to win.
"Sunday did all get a bit messy with champagne and beer being thrown about and then getting covered in mud but it was worth it.
"Now we want to make sure it is not another 108 years - and win it again next season."
Both clubs have been invited to show their trophies at half-time at Accrington Stanley’s home match tomorrow.
