MAINLY HALIFAX LEAGUE CLUBS
On a sunny Saturday morning I left the Test Match behind at Headingley and travelled a couple of miles to see my first match which was between Yorkshire Academy and Cleethorpes.Tony Hutton and Jenny were already there watching the players warm up. To our surprise the spin twins Rafiq and Rashid were playing which would have not pleased Cleethorpes.Cleethorpes overseas pl;ayer took two wickets in two balls to shock the ten spectators watching the match. Rafiq was one of the wickets caught at slip and that is cricket.However time to see clubs I have not visited in the Halifax League . Peter Davies has just recently issued a excellent book on the history of the league.
