Weekend Result

Silsden continued their winning streak against Bradley. Silsden set 256-7 relying on Simon Cox 79 and Tom Berry 119 not out. Silsden bowled Bradley out for 63 runs with wickets shared out between Will Pullen 3, Kieran Lawrence 3, Joe Sugden 3 and Nick Firth 1 wicket.  Result>

Bad News

The club suffered some bad news on Tuesday when the very heavy winds took their toll on our wicket covers. The covers were secured as usual behind the score box but the gale force winds that blew down the valley blew one cover onto the road and severely damaged all 3 of them. The club thank the persons who dragged the road bound cover back to the car park and members who attended the scene. Unfortunately the insurance only covered theft and vandalism and not ‘acts of God’. So the covers that cost £7000 will have to be assessed to see if they can somehow be mended. This is another blow to the club who solely rely on volunteer help year after year.

Club Update: Why Silsden CC Now play in the Craven League

To all members and friends where ever you may be in the country or overseas. You may be wondering what has been happening during the close season. Well a mass exodus of players from last year for various reasons including injury, retirement and playing elsewhere these players included last years captain Chris Meehan who in his short tenure as captain managed to upset nearly everyone. The club proposed to the Airedale Wharfedale league that we run a second team only in the second team league. This was based on the most of the remaining players were under 18 and giving the club time to regroup. The league turned this request down saying that we must play in the first team league. The club felt that this was not right as the spirit of cricket and the safeguarding of players was not considered. After a vote of no confidence from the League, the club thought that they better resign before being voted out as two other clubs had applied to join the league. This vote of no confidence brought on our approach to the Craven league who had a vacancy in their league which we duly excepted and resigned from the AW league before being pushed. This move ended a 80 year association with the league as a founder member club. Silsden Cricket Club was formed in 1876 and over the last 15 years put over £150000 into its facilities. The club must now look forward to new challenges and try and put the indignity of the winter behind them.
