November meeting - Dave Callaghan

It's all things Yorkshire on 14th November when the BBC's Dave Callaghan will be our guest. One-time Sports Editor of BBC Radio Leeds, Dave now provides ball-by-ball commentary on all Yorkshire's matches for BBC radio, giving him an unequalled view of the county's successful 2012 season. We'll certainly have plenty to talk about: promotion to Division 1; a marvellous T20 campaign; a trip to South Africa for the Champions League; the impact of new coach Jason Gillespie; Tim Bresnan, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root touring India; newcomers Jack Brooks and Liam Plunkett; youngsters Gary Ballance, Azeem Rafiq and Moin Ashraf; Hull's own Steve Patterson, and much, much more.

Make sure you join us for a lively evening of cricket chat! 

Our postponed AGM will also take place prior to this meeting, starting at 7.15 p.m.

Rain, rain, go to Spain

Interesting report on Cricinfo this morning on the effects of the weather on the 2012 season. You won't be surprised to learn that Yorkshire were the worst affected of all - robbed of contesting as many as 151 Championship points. Meanwhile Derbyshire - along with Sussex - were most favoured by the elements. No mention of this from Karl Krikken and the several Derbyshire societies in attendance at the Council of Cricket Societies last Saturday!

More to come from Cricinfo on the season in statistics over the next three days.

Council of Cricket Societies / Derby / 3rd November 2012

A good day at the Council of Cricket Societies half-yearly meeting at the weekend. Around twenty other societies represented. Great opportunity to make contacts and pick up ideas for future speakers. Plus a very interesting Q&A session with Derbyshire coach Karl Krikken.

Dave Callaghan, the voice of YCCC on BBC radio, will give us his close-up view of Yorkshire's eventful - and very successful - 2012 season at our next meeting on Wednesday 14th November, 7.45 p.m. Plenty to discuss. Come armed with your questions!

NOTE TO MEMBERS: Our AGM, postponed from October due to illness, will be held prior to this meeting at 7.15 p.m.
