Central Lancashire Cricket League

Central Lancashire Cricket League

The Central Lancashire League (CLL) is a fifteen team cricket league, traditionally based in Lancashire, England. It is now based around Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire. The league runs competitions at First Team, Second Team, Third Team, Under 18, Under 15, Under 13 and Under 11 levels.

The league was due to expand to a sixteen club format from 2005. Monton & Weaste were awarded the extra place ahead of Bamford Fieldhouse, Saddleworth, Elton, Walshaw, Didsbury and Bury. However, Stand left the league before the 2005 season and their replacement, Clifton did not join until 2006. 2006 also saw the introduction of a Twenty20 competition in the league, which was first won by Norden.
