Better than that the club won it in the 1954/55 season. According to wiki.
Wiki is correct, Mark. We beat Oldham, but I have no other details. We've also been losing finalists on three occasions since then, according to my records:-

1965/66 lost 4-0 to Burnley after beating Liverpool, Bury, & Blackpool.

1966/67 lost 2 - 0 to Oldham after beating Man City, Morecambe, & Blackburn.

1969/70 lost 3-2 to Burnley after beating Preston, Netherfield, & Man Utd.

There may also be other occasions that I'm not aware of.

After we lost our Football League place we generally participitated in the Lancashire Junior Cup instead
One of the Burnley defeats - think it was the 65-66 one - was against their full first team. They were punished by the then manager after a heavy defeat in the old First Division on the previous Saturday.
