A BIG WEEKEND FOR CRICKET IN YORKSHIRE
The T20 competition took place at Harrogate Cricket Club at the same time as Ben Stokes’ batting heroics at Headingley were helping England win the third Test of The Ashes, by one wicket, in one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.
This year’s Yorkshire Junior Cricket Festival saw some of the best young cricketers from Nidderdale, Scarborough, Cleveland and Upper Airedale battling it out to win the acclaimed competition.
Nidderdale beat Cleveland to tee up an exciting afternoon final against Scarborough, who had triumphed against Upper Airedale in the morning’s other tie.
During the event there was also a BBQ and charity raffle, which raised more than £200 for NSPCC.
Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Area Director, Paul Baxter, who heads up the firm’s Harrogate office, said: “This was a superb event that was very well organised by Tony Stephens and his team. The cricket was of an exceptional standard and there was a very good crowd of spectators and family members cheering the players on, making it a great competition for us to sponsor.”
The Yorkshire Junior Cricket Festival is a central body who have organised all representative cricket in the Yorkshire area since 1962. This covers age ranges from Under 9 level through to the Under 17 Joe Lumb competition. Almost every successful Yorkshire cricketer at a professional level will have at some stage played through the ranks of the Yorkshire Junior Cricket Festival.
