President's Day is back and it's expanded again. Four days of Real Ale and Gin, real chat and real cricket. Plus loads more...

It all starts at 4pm on Friday 14th September with the first of a four-day Real Ale and Gin festival, and a return of the popular Lancs League Player's Reunion.

As well as the reunion night, the Friday evening's entertainment will also include an IPL-style player auction for the President's Day match on Saturday 15th, featuring the now-regular mixture of big names, former pros and BCC Legends. Some of the previous player appearances include all of our first class cricketers, Chris Tremlett, James Foster, Imran Tahir and Joe McCluskie.

Sunday will see a new addition to proceedings in the form of a Family Fun Day 6-a-Side Competition. Then, on Monday, we will be boxing off the weekend with the remaining Real Ale and premium gins. Better book Tuesday off, we reckon.

More info and advertisements to follow shortly, once some final details are confirmed, but here's a rundown of the weekend's events...
