Calling all those who want to play social cricket? (1) Those youngsters who, when they mature beyond the junior ranks, are lost to the game. (2) Older guys who have lapsed from the game and who would like to return to a less competitive cricket experience.
The Holme Valley Sunday social cricket association took another step toward reality at Upperthong CC this week. Rob Oakley, chair of Upperthong, hosted the latest meeting of interested clubs, including Upperthong, Thongsbridge, Honley and The Sleepers (Linthwaite). Holmfirth and Thurstonland remain uncertain.
Rob has produced a fixture list which will need some fine tuning before publication, hopefully after the next meeting in March, when we also hope to advertise in the press arrangements for the launch of the association. Club contact information for those who wish to join the new venture will then be made available.
