Mally points the way!

Skipper Mally Nicholson has pushed out the boat and managed to have a table of ten and another six guests for the Annual Dinner next Friday, which is a magnificent effort and may we ask everyone to keep on pushing!

Sneak auction items preview!

The Cricket Section’s Annual Dinner witnesses one of the best auctioneers you are likely to witness in John Collier.

In addition, below is news of newcomers to date;

Footballer Curtis Woodhouse turned to boxing despite no previous experience!

Cleck’ pays tribute to Dean Worrall, who is a well known character at Moorend, who very recently grew his hair over several months to raise money for the Bradford Burns Unit! Deano is now once again sporting a shaven head but the charity is £1,200 better off thanks to his efforts, which as a Club we applaud.

A full function room at Moorend is a fantastic sight!

Cleck’ capture star County batsman

Yorkshire and former Worcestershire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore has joined Cleck’.

The 23-year-old right hand batsman who bowls right-arm off spin also is expected to play around a dozen games for the Moorenders subject to his County commitments but the Chatham-born star is a superb prospect and a player who will be able to realistically assist Cleck’s quest for honours.

He won the Walter Lawrence award for the fastest domestic hundred scored in a first class innings and he is renowned as a destructive big hitting batsman.

Skipper Mally Nicholson simply said; “He is a fantastic signing for the Club.”

Former Chairman Dave Worrall, who remains a major part of making new signings alongside Mally and Chairman Ian Gatenby, is delighted at the Club’s sixth newcomer for the 2018 season. “We had a really good meeting with Tom last week and explained how we operate and we felt he appeared happy with our approach,” commented Dave. “He came across as a real team man and will be delighted to take part in our social side and he’s coming to our Annual Dinner on March 2nd. He wanted to do things properly and speak to other Clubs who had been in contact with him, which he obviously has done. Tom announced to Mally to let us know the good news and he’s a real coup for us.”

There has been a great deal of hard work gone in to not only the latest signing of Tom Kohler-Cadmore but capturing five other fresh faces who all have a great deal to offer.

No-one at Cleck’ is arrogant enough to shout the odds because the ECB Bradford Cricket Premier League has quality teams throughout the League and in 2018 it’ll be as tough as ever.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore is welcomed at Cleck' and recognised as a team player as well as a future star in County Cricket

The new lads signed provide a youthful look to the team and fresh faces bring fresh ideas and without doubt the batting line up especially looks very strong but as we all know no-one can ever take anything for granted, hard graft, determination and focus are needed at every level and the hierarchy at Moorend are not getting carried away but pleased at their hard pre-season work.

In addition to the latest signing other new faces includes; Toby Thorpe from Undercliffe, Josh Thurwell and Johnny Whiteoak from Carlton and Lightcliffe respectively, experienced Dave Paynter and another big hitter in overseas Tayyab Tahir.

Signing Tom is a real 'coup' for Cleck'

As ever new kit is ordered for the First Team and a deal has been agreed with Surridge – with a link to an on- line store to be set up in the near future

Could there be a seventh new signing? Watch this space as Cleck's Captain and Cricket Committee go in to over-drive to rid memories of last term's relegation haunted season and bring in new faces to enhance the Club's chances of success

Cleck’ play Kirkburton CC on Saturday April 14th at their hosts ground in a pre-season friendly with a 1pm start - AND NOT Jer Lane as first advertised.

The Cricket Section strives to continue fund-raising events and in the coming weeks and months a great deal more is planned.

*The popular ladies luncheon is booked for Saturday June 23rd - full details can be acquired from the organiser Elaine Binns albeit this is an event for the benefit of the Cricket Section and support for the day would be appreciated. Home made food & comedian for entertainment @ £20 per head*

Ian 'Sludge' Lees is set for Cleck' in June
