Bethan recognises influence on others!

The Sports Club houses Cricket, Rugby and Bowls and the Title of Bar Manager is not an easy task but almost one-year on since being appointed in that role, Bethan Robinson is doing ‘just fine.’

It’s no secret that because of her tender years a few eyebrows were raised when Bethan was appointed initially but the lady in her mid 20s has shown great maturity as well as ability and appreciates how much the Sports Club means to so many members. “I’ve worked at Cleckheaton Sports Club since the beginning of 2019 and my favourite part of the job is being part of something that is such an important part of so many peoples’ lives,” commented Bethan. “I’m a Cleckheaton girl through and through and live just a couple of miles away from the Club.”

Working unsociable hours as well as being in charge of people often older and more experienced has not fazed Bethan and it should not be forgotten that she too is experienced within the licensing trade and she manages to balance her work with home life as a partner and a mum. Bethan added; “I live with my partner and three-year-old daughter – but I’m used to the lifestyle of working behind a bar – I’ve worked in the licensing trade since I was aged 16 and been employed by award winning pubs such as the West Riding Refreshment Rooms in Dewsbury and the New Inn in Roberttown.”

Bethan has fitted in well at Moorend and she has been accepted fully by everyone at the Club who to a man and a woman recognises hard-work and loyalty and equally the ‘breath of fresh air’ that she has transmitted – and long may it continue.

Bethan Robinson is proving to be anything but an 'Old Golden Hen'!!

**Bethan is hosting a 'curry night' in the function room on Friday December 6th that is great value at just £15 and includes entertainment. To make a booking speak to Bethan at the Club**

The Cricket Section works hard at putting events on and the success of the Club as a whole is imperative but from Cleckheaton Cricket Club’s point of view without the input and effort of so many we would simply not be able to compete at the top-level of cricket.

In the Events Calendar is news of everything that’s happening in the coming months and everyone’s support is both needed and definitely appreciated.

A full function room at Cleck' is a fantastic sight

Rallying call for Seconds’ side

There is a recruitment drive for the Second team for the 2020 season and new players are required.

We’ll pull no punches on this – the Seconds have lost several key players and at times last season the team was depleted even to the point of having to play with less than ten men a scenario that cannot continue.

However, a massive thank you has to go to the Captain Elliott Hallas who has gone well beyond the call of duty in his first season as Skipper and he could not have had it tougher. Elliott not only skipper’s the team but he’s an influential player both with the bat and ball and he involves himself off-the-field attending cricket meetings and supporting the Club in any way he can.

In his early 20s, Elliott has shown great maturity and in turn he deserves support.

There’s no easy solution – but a keen recruitment drive is under way to make sure that any young players given an opportunity will have experience alongside them, which includes former Captain Chris Dobson and the team can compete, as often as possible, with a consistent squad.

Anyone that is interested in joining the Second team please contact Elliott or the Cricket Chairman Ian Gatenby or any cricket committee member.

Elliott Hallas is looking to lead a successful Seconds' side
