Church duo Levi Wolfenden and Nasser Hussain were in the prizes at the Lancashire League presentation evening at Burnley FC on Friday.
Lancashire spinner Gary Keedy presented the prizes with Lancashire displaying the county championship-winning trophy alongside the many Lancashire League awards.
Wolfenden and Hussain’s third-wicket stand against Colne in April saw Hussain collecting the Lancashire Telegraph sponsored Batting Tankard for his unbeaten 132, which was the highest amateur innings of the season and also re-wrote Church’s record books as the stand of 207 was the highest third-wicket stand at the club. It was also the first time two amateurs had got centuries in the same match.
Wolfenden, then 17, celebrated the Bill Harrison Memorial Trophy for his unbeaten century – he finished on 100.
The other Hyndburn cricketer in the awards was Rishton’s young bowler Ali Sartaj who was awarded the Young Player of the Season award after he became the youngest player in the league’s history to take 50 wickets in a season at just 17.
