RISHTON will be battling to avoid a hat-trick of unwanted records as they enter the final weekend of the Lancashire League season.
There is more than honour at stake when Jonathan Dobson's side make the trip to rivals Accrington tomorrow.
The Blackburn Road side have already got two "records to avoid''.
They chalked up a run of 15 defeats at the start of the season which took a 97-year-old record off Bacup. And they will take the lowest points tally from Accrington since the 12 points for a win system was introduced.
Accrington got 74 with just four wins in 1999 - and, even with a double win weekend, Rishton can't beat that. And, if they slip to losses at Accrington tomorrow and Colne on Sunday, they will have a record number of defeats in a season.
They have 23 while Colne currently hold this record with 24 in 1991.
Rishton have got just one win this season - and this came against Accrington earlier on and was celebrated like they had won the championship.
The Thorneyholme side, who will finish second-off-bottom, will want their revenge this time out.
Enfield, meanwhile, are hoping to cement a top six spot when they make the trip to league leaders East Lancs tomorrow and their final game of the season is at home to Lowerhouse.
Church have a home game against Ramsbottom tomorrow while they are also at home to Bacup on Sunday.
- ACCRINGTON's Graeme Sneddon (91 not out) and Stuart Crabtree (71 not out) put on a 3rd XI club record third-wicket stand of 171 as they beat Church by eight wickets at the weekend.
- FORMER Accrington 2nd XI wicketkeeper Richard Chaplow celebrated his first league goal for Burnley FC. The youngster scored the winner in the 1-0 victory over Crewe at Turf Moor on Saturday.
