Accrington v Bacup
July 16th 1913
On July 16th Accrington entertained Bacup in a mid week match, Wednesday being half day closing in both towns. The home side batted first with Australian professional Alex Kermode opening the bowling for Bacup. Llewellyn came to the crease at the fall of the second wicket to join his captain, Billy Brown. When he had scored 15, Llewellyn was dropped at cover. How Bacup would pay for that miss. Llewellyn drove and cut 31 boundaries, being particularly severe on Kermode, to set a new Lancashire League record score of 188 not out. He dominated a sixth wicket stand of 154 with Arnold Chadwick, whose contribution was 22 before Brown declared the innings closed. Kermode finished with 1-105 with Accrington making their highest ever league total. In those days there were no sixes, Llewellyn cleared the boundary on many occasions, under todays conditions he would have made over 200. When Bacup batted, Llewellyn took 5-64, but the visitors managed to hang on for a draw.
