The Lune Road side’s short-form side will hoping to go one better than last year when they reached the TWP Wealth Twenty20 finals day where they lost to eventual winners Netherfield at the semi-final stage at Darwen Cricket Club.
The decision to change the name was taken at an EGM held in the pavilion with a revamped committee headed by new chairman Brendan Hetherington also appointed.
The club are looking to bounce back from a difficult year on and off the field with club officials hoping the new-look hierarchy will allow players to concentrate on playing rather than administration.
