It is with sadness that Saltaire CC announces the death of two former stalwart players and very influential members of the Club, namely Keith Stretton and David Jackson. Keith Stretton had fulfilled many roles within the Club and had been in a nursing home for a while. Our thoughts are with his family.
David Jackson was 2nd team Captain for many years during the 1990s and was a Committee member. He died after a short illness which he fought with great bravery.
Further details as regards funeral arrangements will appear shortly, together with a fuller appreciation of their contributions to Saltaire CC.
It is with sadness that the Club also announce the passing of supporter Richard Mountain, who died on August 1st after suffering from cancer. A braver and more cheerful person one could not wish to meet. Our thoughts are with his family, especially Karen and Peter.
A minutes silence for Keith, David and Richard will be held before the 1st XI home game v Batley on Saturday 13th August.
At an EGM on Monday June 27th, Saltaire CC Members voted by a clear majority to join the Airedale and Wharfedale Senior Cricket League for the start of season 2017.
It was not a decision that was taken lightly, especially given the long history of the Club within the Bradford League.
Saltaire CC would like to express its appreciation to the Bradford Premier Cricket League for the help and consideration we have received over the years.
We look forward to joining the Airedale and Wharfedale Senior Cricket League and wish the Bradford Premier Cricket League well for the future.

The funeral of John Martin, who died on Sunday 18th October after a short illness, will be on Monday November 9th at 1 20pm, Nab Wood Crematorium.
John was, for the last few years, joint groundsman at Saltaire Cricket Club. He umpired regularly in the Bradford Junior Cricket League and spent most of his playing career in the Aire-Wharfe Cricket League.
Family flowers only. Any donations should go to Brain Tumour Research.
All welcome at Baildon Golf Club from 3 pm following the service at Nab Wood.
As well as giving freely of his time and expertise down at the ground, whether cutting the outfield, preparing wickets or painting inside the pavilion, John was simply a top man. Full of good humour (legendary jokes) and wise words, his presence will be sorely missed and, just like "Big Al", I will still feel as if he is there in spirit.
John, we can't believe you've gone from us but thanks for everything. Life will not be quite the same again.
Saltaire CC Committee and supporters.
Winter nets start Sunday 11th January, 2016 at Zara Sports Centre.

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:
