Season Review by Tim Sugden - Chairman
A difficult start to the year when the club was forced to leave the Airedale Wharfedale Senior Cricket League after 80 unblemished years but for the good of the club we were gratefully accepted into the Craven Cricket League to start a new chapter in the clubs history . A thank you to all the players who stuck with the club. We played new teams and made new friends; one such fixture being Gargrave, the first senior match between our clubs for some 45 year. The season panned out with us playing 22 games, winning 16, losing none, no results in 6 matches and gaining the club promotion. Thanks to Andy Pullen for looking after the team. There were many notable performances including centuries for Jack Lister, Tom Berry and Andy Pullen. Will Pullen and Keiran Lawrence did the bulk of the bowling but the season was a collective effort from everybody including Tom Snowden who went all season using the same kit.
Once again thanks to the ground staff Hugh, Finlay, Martin and Tatts and all the helpers who tidied the changing rooms and other tasks. The kitchen was again well looked after and thanks to all providers of the teas. We are lucky to have a number of sponsors either on the roadside boards or the ground boards and thanks go to them all. New sponsors are always welcome. Graham umpired in all but one game this season so his commitment and slight of finger was very much appreciated. Alison looked after the Play Cricket site and Mick the website. Thanks to them.
Thanks to all the supporters who followed the club home and away this season, it was very much appreciated.
Our U17 team reached the cup final, losing to Skipton. Rob Jones collected the U17 Player of the Year for the league. It is the end of an era for the U17 lads, so we are looking to start teams next year if anyone is interested. And finally thanks to the committee who after a traumatic start to 2017 saw things through with less grief than in previous seasons. Once again on behalf of the committee, thank you to everyone this year.
