Accrington's final home T20 game in the JWL Founders Group takes place on Friday when Colne are the visitors. After a terrible start to the season Colne won both their matches last weekend both against Rishton. Accrington began the competition with a home win over Nelson but have since lost to the top two Darwen and Burnley.

After the game Lost My Band will perform in the newly refurbished clubhouse.

On Saturday Accrington welcome joint leaders Crompton to The Property Shop Arena. Crompton lost their unbeaten league record at the hands of Enfield last Sunday. Accrington go in to the game without a league win since mid May. Kain Dean replaces Alex Williams in the Crompton team. Matt Taylor and Yousuf Ali replace Connor Tattersall and Waqar Ashraf in the Accrington team. Professional Jacob Clarke also returns after a shoulder injury.

The seconds travel to Middleton on Saturday.

On Sunday the seconds are in Junior Cup Quarter Final action at Todmorden. Accrington came out on top by 72 runs in the league meeting between the sides earlier in the season.

The thirds have no game this weekend.
