The list of century & best partnerships during the 2013 season is about to be closed. Clubs are asked to advise Albert Pattison (email@example.com) of any missing century stands and any others that better those shown on the website. We particularly need details of significant partnerships for the following:
It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Mel Lowe (Old Hymerians CC). Mel was a much respected player who played much of his cricket in the East Riding Independent Cricket League before it became part of the Y&DSCL Conference. The club were previously in the East Yorkshire Cup.
Besides being a player, Mel also put in a lot of time behind the scenes at his club in many different roles, and was more recently the club’s CWO.
Two Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League players have been selected by England today as The ECB announced a 15-man England Under-19s squad under the captaincy of Stamford Bridge‚Äôs Will Rhodes for the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in the UAE next month. The England squad also includes Matthew Fisher from Sheriff Hutton Bridge.
England will begin with a game against hosts UAE at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on 14 February before playing Sri Lanka and New Zealand in the other group stage matches in Dubai. If England progress further they could then go on to face one of 15 other countries in the latter stages of the tournament.
EDP Head Selector David Graveney said: ‚ÄúThis squad contains an exciting mix of young talent which we look forward to seeing perform on the world stage against top class opposition. It will be an excellent experience for these young players to develop their games in a world class environment, competing at the highest level in this prestigious tournament.‚ÄĚ
It is with sadness that we announce that long-standing umpire Brian Lakin passed away on Boxing Day. Brian had recently been recognised by the YCB for his services to the game; in fact Brian had been umpiring for over 55 years. Brian will be sorely missed by local league cricket.
Alasdair's family would like to pass on their heart-felt, sincere and overwhelming thanks for all the messages of condolence, not just from members of Woodhouse Grange CC but also those from other clubs within, and the representatives of, the York Senior League. They were overwhelmed at the number of people that attended Alasdair's funeral, estimated at 500, helping to make a very difficult day into a very memorable one for the right reasons.
The Frank Piercy Cup competition is open to any club from any League ‚Äď with the proviso that players should not be regular members of teams in the Premier or First Division of a designated Senior League.
Games are played on a Twenty/20 basis with a finals day on a Sunday in August at Sheriff Hutton Bridge CC. who are the sole organisers and provide a cash prize for the winners. In order to reduce travelling, early rounds are regionalised. It is proposed to implement this in the form of a three-team round-robin played on a Sunday (similar to the Readman Trophy) ‚Äď thus ensuring that all teams play at least two games.
Entries are invited from clubs in the York Senior, York Senior Eastern Conference, York Vale, Nidderdale, Wetherby and Scarborough Leagues. To enter, or ask for further details, please contact Albert Pattison Tel: 01904 490394 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are trying to locate two missing trophies and would be pleased to hear from anyone who has information as to their whereabouts
1. FRANK PIERCY TROPHY The original Frank Piercy Trophy was lost some years ago, possibly in the Pocklington area. The base contained the only known record of the early winners of the competition. Details are required for historic records
2. SOUTH RYEDALE LEAGUE TROPHY This competition, for intermediate players, ceased to function more than ten years ago. We are keen to locate the trophy, which was donated by Ryedale District Council, so that it can be re-cycled for the Under-21 Inter-League K.O. Competition
Anyone able to assist in locating the above is asked to contact Albert Pattison ‚Äď Tel: 01904 490394 or e-mail email@example.com
Woodhouse Grange have clinched their fifth League title in six seasons with two games still to go. In an advantage draw on Saturday there were vintage performances by batsman Nick Hadfield who hit his second century of the season and his 21st ton in the top flight and a three wicket over by skipper Steve Burdett. After seeing Chris Bilton fall for 36, Hadfield and Mike Burdett 47 put on 129 for the third wicket before Hadfield went on to carry his bat for an unbeaten 121 in a total of 233-4. Anthony Spence then replied with an unbeaten 87 which enabled Beverley to gain a draw at 177-8 despite Steve Burdett's return of 4-43.
Back Row (L-R): Tom Young, Andrew Bilton, Tom Quinn, Josh Jackson, Michael Hattee, Chris Suddaby
After the match, the Woodhouse Grange skipper was presented with the Champion's Trophy by League Secretary, Rob Richtering.

The surge in popularity of websites, face-books, twitters and blogs has resulted in a massive increase in the publication of inappropriate material. This can vary in degree from being mildly irritating to downright offensive text which causes distress, embarrassment and inconvenience to clubs and their members.
It should be remembered that what seems to be humorous to the ‚Äėposter‚Äô may be seen to be offensive to the ‚Äėreader‚Äô and is available for perusal by millions.
The League Committee will take a dim view of inappropriate material appearing in any of the above formats and will take strong action against any individual found to be responsible. Action will also be taken against the individual‚Äôs club and may involve substantial fines, loss of league points, relegation or expulsion.
Clubs are required to ensure that all their members are aware of the pitfalls of posting spurious material and the likely consequences faced by clubs and individuals.
