Bradford Premier League 2017
Welcome to Farsley Cricket Club.
I hope you're all well and looking forward to the season. Hopefully we have a good summer and see some quality cricket.
Being appointed Farsley 2nd team captain is something I would never in my wildest dreams thought would happen. If you'd asked me ten years ago I would have offered you 500-1. I am very honoured and looking forward to the job.
The second team this year sees some changes, the out going captain Stuart kirk has moved to East Bierley along with Jimmy Higgins and also Ryan Lumb to Calverley, I wish them well.
So what happens now? Well I believe we have a good crop of juniors at the club, who will get their chance this season. They will have to work hard on and off the field but I feel now is the right time to bring them forward. We also see the return of Steven Cockshott which will give us some experience and will help bring on the youngster. I am also in talks with an all-rounder who as played at Farsley as a junior who's return would give us some strength, barring that I will stick with what we have.
My goal is to keep Farsley 2nd in Division One of the JCT600 Bradford League where they belong.
I would just like to wish Mark and his team all the best this season and my old pal, 3rd team skipper, Stuart tempest who does sterling work with bringing on the juniors good luck.
P.S. A big thanks to grounds men Henry Hinchcliffe and John Cockshott for putting the show on.
