Saturday 19 May

Denby Dale, Skelmanthorpe, Shelley, Kirkburton, Shepley

With the Professor!

A very good afternoon in the company of Professor Brendan Evans, our friend from the university.

He and my Dad get on very well - and we set off on a tour of Huddersfield grounds, ones Brendan didn't know.

It had been a rainy time so we weren't convinced there'd be play. This was the case at Denby Dale.

So we moved on to Skelmanthorpe, where play was just due to start after we arrived. I said hello to chairman Margaret Dollive and we had a cup of tea and a sit-down in front of the pavilion.

Next stop Shelley. A quick sit-down and play just seemed to be starting.

Then Kirkburton, where there was little doing, but a tea lady did offer to serve us with food.

Finally, Shepley where we had an excellent tea - hot food and three very willing tea ladies. Top stuff. Ian Watkinson - SCC secretary - was there and it was a good atmosphere in general.

Brendan certainly enjoyed his day.
