RISHTON have got one trophy in the bag and now they are on the hunt for the most prestigious one - the Lancashire League title.
The Blackburn Roaders collected the 20/20 Trophy on Friday with a victory over Burnley and then, on Sunday, secured a comfortable win over Todmorden to move up to fifth in the table - just 10 points off the leaders.
And this could be whittled away in a double header weekend if fellow title chasers Enfield beat leaders Ramsbottom tomorrow (Sat) and Rishton see off Nelson and third placed Burnley over the weekend.
"We just have to win as many games as we can," said new pro Australian Lachlan Stevens, who only made his debut two weeks ago.
"I was looking at the league the other day and there is not a lot between the top nine. I was really happy for the boys to win the 20/20 trophy and now we have to concentrate on the league."
Stevens notched up his first half ton for his club in that game and hopes there is more runs to come. But he admits, after coming over to England for the first time, that his bowling is a priority.
"It is hard as the wickets are very different to Queensland. It makes it a different sort of game.
"I haven't set myself many goals but I do want to improve my bowling. It is a good chance for me to practise more. In terms of batting though, I just want to get as many runs as I can and be competitive."
One player who has been helping Stevens is fellow Aussie Peter Sleep, the Rishton captain.
"I had heard of Sleepy obviously in Australia but never met him until I came to Rishton - I didn't even know he was here until two days before I came but he has made sure I have settled in! There are some good cricketers and they are a good bunch of lads here."
Rishton, who last won the league 10 years ago, are certainly in the running for the league title after they saw off Todmorden last Sunday.
Tod had only put 146 on the board - with Sleep taking four wickets and Stevens three - and it was a comfortable chase for Rishton.
Sean Wyse made 45, Stevens 44 and Sleep an unbeaten 39 as they went from 114-2 with 18 overs left to needing 10 off the last seven overs.
It was comfortable and it was a vital six wicket win - and 12 points - in their title chase.
Enfield met in-form Burnley who did the double on the title chasing side and leapfrogged over them. Burnley had made 220-8 with Bernard Reidy adding another four wickets to his ever-growing collection.
His son and opener Sam Reidy made 58 in the chase but some tight bowling meant Enfield fell 20 runs short and slipped to fourth - although they picked up four important batting points.
It is a huge game for them this weekend as they look to boost their title aspirations. They face leaders Ramsbottom tomorrow and Rawtenstall on Sunday.
Accrington were on the end of a 98-run defeat to Haslingden as Tama Canning did well against his former club. Canning made 29 of Haslingden's 214 and then took three wickets as Nishit Shetty top-scored with 27 for Accrington.
Matt Wilson's side will be looking to move up the table against Lowerhouse and second placed Bacup this weekend.
Church, meanwhile, are off the bottom for the first time in a couple of weeks after their dramatic win over Rawtenstall.
It was a case of leaving it late as Nick Westwell put on a last wicket stand of 40 with Alan Haworth to steer Church through after they were struggling on 106-9 chasing 145. And Westwell, who admitted he was disappointed with his bowling figures this season, was also a star with the ball taking 6-25 in what was a moral-boosting victory for Church going into this weekend's double header against Burnley and East Lancs.
