Dobby set to reminisce and look forward

Chris Dobson is easily the Club’s longest serving player and the man who has stepped down as Second Team Captain for 2019 will put forward his thoughts on the website in the next few days.

Dobby has served Cleckheaton Cricket Club in tremendous fashion for approaching three decades and although he’s replaced as Seconds’ Captain by Elliott Hallas, Chris continues to play next term and hopefully beyond.

Dobby’s own thoughts to follow soon

Vital months ahead for Cleck’ CC!

Player recruitment is high on the agenda at Cleck’ but as ever so is fund-raising.

The First Team and Seconds’ Captains, Mally Nicholson and Elliott Hallas are busy in their quest to bring in new players to the Club but importantly they have to be the right type of characters as well as quality cricketers with news on their successes as soon as we have it.

Meanwhile, there’s lots going on at Moorend in the coming weeks and the Cricket Section asks everyone to keep tabs on the Events Calendar – your support is both important and appreciated.

Full house for successful Presentation and Race Night

Cricket Chairman Ian Gatenby has every right to be pleased with the outcome of yet another successful presentation and race night, which witnessed the function room full with approaching 150 youngsters and their families, players and members enjoying a relaxed but entertaining evening.

Although Gats makes it all look so easy he puts in an awful lot of work, not just through organising the evening but making sure the race night is a big success by ‘badgering’ would be sponsors - and his dog with a bone tactics works! The evening is a financial success, which is so important but equally the delight at seeing the kids especially enjoying themselves is priceless.

Steve Midgley, Antony Lee and Russ Noble were also there to support the Chairman who presented Russ with the Chairman’s Annual award for outstanding service to the Club.
