Ist XI Friendly v Pateley Bridge CC
On a chilly but bright day in Pateley we had a very useful workout.
SCC scored 264 - 3 in 40 overs with Mike scoring 50*, Tariq 38*, Asif 33* and Amer 56*.
In reply PB CC reached 94-9 with Sarfaraz Ahmed 9-4-12-3 and Rashid Ayub 4-0-18-3 returning the best figures.
Many thanks to Mike Eglin, and his better half Anna, and everybody at Pateley Bridge CC who made us all very welcome.
Next stop for the 1st XI is Hanging Heaton away.

Sad news at the passing of Brian Clough of Bowling Old Lane at the age of 82. There are many superb tributes to Brian on the Bradford Cricket League website. As a relative newcomer to the Bradford Cricket League it was always a pleasure to meet him and marvel at his enthusiasm for cricket and life in general. He will truly be missed. The Club has sent condolences to Geoff Hanson at Bowling Old Lane and asked that they be passed on to his family. RIP Brian - a true legend.
Winter nets start Sunday 11th January, 2015 at Zara Sports Centre.

Review of 2014 Season Senior
Under Captain Adrian Monk the 1st XI gained promotion back to Division One at the first attempt. A fine team effort with our Overseas Player Israr Ullah leading the way with 700 runs, 50 wickets and 23 catches in the League.
The 2nd team struggled to be consistent and will be looking to bounce back in 2015 with some new faces, led by captain Feyaz Akram and vice-captain Govinder. Welcome to Atif Khokar, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Adam Khan.

Roberts Park and Saltaire World Heritage Centre
The only cricket ground situated in a World Heritage site. It is a great day out with plenty to do and visit. Roberts Park re-opened in May 2010 following the £4.5m refurbishment. We have probably the most picturesque ground in the Bradford League, particularly in the spring when all the blossom is out. The Half Moon Cafe, which is run by the cricket club, serves quality coffees and tea, 6 flavours of ice-cream, sandwiches and dish-of-the day and bottled beers. It is open 6 days a week in the Summer, closed Mondays (except Bank Holidays). Also winter opening Wednesday - Sunday.

Fund-raising and other news
A disappointing turnout for CricketForce over the weekend! Ok, I know the weather didn't help but ... thanks to Billy, Boxer, Arjan and Dad, Ben and James (the twig collectors) and Mum and Dad, Tariq Q and Simon for their efforts. Sightscreens have been painted and the front of the pavilion. Thanks as well to Manor Paints; much appreciated as always Mick Brannan.
The 1st XI were due to play a friendly v Adel on Saturday the 4th April but a combination of poor weather and player unavailability from Adel means that it has been cancelled. Next up is a friendly away at Pateley Bridge on Saturday April 11th. Start time 1pm. The side will contain 1st and 2nd XI players - our Overseas player Israr Ullah is due to arrive on the 15th April in time for the first match away at Hanging Heaton on the 18th April.
Many thanks to those who turned up for Saltaire Cricket Club's Junior Awards Evening at Shipley Bowling Club.
A slightly disappointing turnout was more than compensated by a cracking evening's entertainment, plenty of "spot prizes" and much good humour.

Enjoy Cricket at Roberts Park!
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
