Cleck’ must overcome absentees

Saturday’s home game against Townville is a tough test and the loss of Toby Booth and Andrew Deegan doesn’t help the cause.

However, Thursday evening’s practice night was positive and the new nets came in very handy, which have been used not just by the Cleck’ boys but the likes of Buttershaw St Paul’s and Bankfoot players have practiced there too.

Scott Price and Elliott Hallas step in to the First Team for the first home game of the season and the team is as follows: M. Nicholson (Captain) K. Ward N. Lindley H. Booth E. Lee C. Fletcher I. Carradice I. Wardlaw A. Hussain E. Hallas S. Price


Cleck's Seconds visit East Ardsley

Cleck’ endure first day defeat

Cleck’ lost to New Farnley on Saturday by eight wickets despite a cameo knock of 76 from Iain Wardlaw who notched his highest ever batting total that included five sixes and five fours in the visitors total of 242 all out.

The hosts eased past the figure ending on 243-2 with over ten overs to spare.

Craig Fletcher impressed with his 31 runs and Harvey Booth notched a hard earned 50 whilst Ian Carradice looked solid for his 20 runs but in the end the home side were too strong.

Lee Goddard scored 123 for the hosts but without influential spinner Andrew Deegan, who can often be a game changer, it was an uphill task to breakthrough a strong New Farnley batting line up for Cleck' and against a side that are one of the favourites for the title.

Cleck's Seconds also suffered a first day defeat at home to Northawram.

The new nets are now up and ready to see some action!

Cleck’ set to honour Lloyd

A memorial service is planned for Lloyd Campbell at Moorend on Sunday May 2nd @ 10:30a.m.

The former fast bowler and Cleck’ committee member sadly passed away on Easter Monday and rather than a traditional funeral service, due to circumstances, Lloyd’s family’s wishes, is to hold a celebration of his life on the outfield at Cleck’.

This may well be a first for the Club but it’s deemed as a privilege to remember and celebrate the life of a very popular gentleman.

Those wishing to attend please be aware of government guidelines and with social distancing in mind of course.

Lloyd was known for his warm smile and infectious laughter and he's seen above flanked by two other Cleck' stalwarts Bob Shackleton and Dave Worrall - and Sunday May 2nd is a time for those that wish to do so, to pay respects to Lloyd

Fletch’ earns respect for ‘good deed’

Cleck’s Craig Fletcher is raising money for the British Heart Foundation a charity close to his and his family’s hearts.

Craig will oversee the Manchester Half Marathon in September to raise much needed funds and there is a just giving page.

Craig commented: “I’ve been running quite a bit in lockdown and a mate of mine Gurman Randhawa who recently joined New Farnley asked if I wanted to help him train for the Manchester Half Marathon, which I said I was happy to do and then decided I’d sign up myself.

I’m raising money for the British Heart Foundation as last March before the season began, I sadly lost my grandma, who used to come and watch me play at Cleck’ - she passed of a sudden heart attack and my two granddads had heart problems, so, it’s a charity very close to my heart as well as Gurm’s, who sadly lost his Dad to a sudden heart attack.

Cleck’s Harvey Booth has signed up to run with us too and I think my brother-in-law the Kirkburton Captain Jonny Butterfield is going to run also.

I know it’s been a difficult time for a lot of people this past year but any donation would be hugely appreciated or a simple share of my link. Thank you to everyone.”

Cleck’ as a Club acknowledges the effort and decency of what Craig is overseeing and please support him as best you can - any donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.


Craig Fletcher deserves enormous credit for his efforts towards Charity
