Meeting 8 October - CricketYorkshire Q&A

In a change to our advertised programme, our October meeting features a Cricket Yorkshire Q&A with John Fuller (pictured right with ex-YCCC keeper Gerard Brophy), a cricket journalist with a difference. Fed up with 'mainstream cricket froth', John took matters into his own hands. He set up Cricket Yorkshire as a 'freelance cricket entrepreneur' four years ago and his site has since gone from strength to strength. 'Come armed with any and all questions,' says John with not a little trepidation. 'If it's to do with cricket, absolutely nothing's off limits. The point is to kick around topics you want answers to and have an intelligent debate.' John won't be ignoring topical news stories - Yorkshire’s Championship run, the Andrew Gale saga, England's troubled summer and the inevitable KP will all get an airing, but there's also chance to quiz him about his favourite interviews, grassroots sport, favourite grounds, photography, social media and much more ...
 
So, for an evening of cricket chat from international to junior level - and everything in between - come along to our convivial new home - the Brewery Bar, King William IV, Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BD. Our 2014 AGM will be held prior to this meeting at 7.15pm. Q&A starts at 7.45pm.

Recently retired England Women's star Arran Brindle is unable to join us as planned. We hope to rebook Arran at a future date. 

Monthly prize raffle - £2/ticket - offers the chance to win vouchers for free tickets to watch Yorkshire CCC at Headingley in 2015 plus a host of other prizes.
 
Membership costs just £15 a year - join at any meeting. Guests £5 (deductible from annual membership).
