Colne ASC had their first Friendly League fixture of the season against Accrington ASC.

Before the start of the gala, the club captains (pictured) were named and presented with their t-shirts.

The Senior Captains for 2018 are Lewis Fenwick and Eleanor Fuggle.

The Junior Captains are Kian Noon and Emily Fenwick.

The competition rules reverted back to how they were in 2016, increasing the number of races by eight to 45.

Once the gala started, Colne got into a lead which they were never to relinquish as they proved to be far too strong for Accrington.

This was a big turn-a-round from last season when Accrington won both fixtures.

In the end Colne finished the gala by winning the cannon, and thus the meet, by 78 points to 55.

Over the course of the evening, there were 40 new personal bests set, with 22 amongst the girls and 18 for the boys.

The next fixture is away at Great Harwood on Monday, April 16th, with the warm-up starting at 7-45 p.m.
