Produced on a Saturday evening by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, the "pink" was the final round up off all the days sports results and was delivered to Rishton around 5:30 on a Saturday evening.

Queues would form outside the newsagents if the paper was late, people pacing around until it was delivered.

Why the "pink", well the newspaper was printed on pink paper!

The pink was finally put to rest in the early 80's after a prosperous life.
