Wardy cites ‘fielding’ vital to success

Former Yorkshire CCC Club and Scotland international fast bowler Iain Wardlaw believes that extra effort in the field can be the difference between winning and losing.

Wardy was part of the Cleck’ side that won back-to-back Championships having begun his career at Hartshead Moor and the dedicated quick bowler soon courted attention from his County and his international side.

Anyone that knows Iain realises how hard he worked to achieve success at a higher level and whilst he was pivotal in Cleck’s achievements he eventually returned to his roots at Hartshead.

However, now in the twilight of his career but still extremely fit and ambitious Wardy has returned to Moorend and he is determined to be successful but believes that his fellow team mates has to be up for focused fielding. “Anyone can make a mistake in the field, a dropped catch or miss field,” admitted Iain. “But what cannot be tolerated is slipshod work in the field. Players have to practice properly and if you practice in a correct manner it makes all of the difference on a match day. I am delighted to be back at Cleck’ and I know that Captain Mally Nicholson shares my thoughts on how important practice sessions are and it will show on match days.”

Wardy is a genuine bloke who always gives 100% and his re-appearance at Moorend is welcomed by everyone at the Club.

Sadly, his Skipper Mally is out for the season with a cruciate ligament injury that requires surgery.

Off-the-field on Saturday night there was an excellent evening’s entertainment in the function room as around 60 guests enjoyed the brilliant singer Kevin Kendrick’s.

Credit goes also to the organiser former Chairman Dave Worrall whose family were involved in assisting on the night.

Further events can be sourced in the Events Calendar with the traditional Annual Dinner taking place on Friday March 6th with plenty of places still available.
