Lancashire CCC fielded a Colts side in the League Division 1 for the first time in 2010 and played each member club once, all away from home with the points counting in the final table. After the Colts application was approved initially by the League Exectutive on a one year trial basis the move was seen as a success by all parties and the Colts have remained members of the League and continued to play each other side once.
From 2011 onwards the Colts also entered the Readers Cup competition. achieving a notable win at Fleetwood in their first cup tie
