Meeting 11 November - Dave Callaghan

Former Sports Editor of Radio Leeds, Dave Callaghan is now the BBC's 'Voice of Yorkshire Cricket', his ball-by-ball commentary on all Yorkshire CCC matches updating supporters from Beverley to Bulgaria, Aldbrough to Australia. No one has a closer view of the club and its players, and the summer of 2015 offers a host of talking points for his traditional season review - including Yorkshire's back-to-back Championship triumphs, England call-ups for Root, Ballance, Bairstow, Rashid, Plunkett and Lyth, Joe Root heading the world batting rankings, an exciting new signing in David Willey, and much, much more.  

In this change to the advertised programme, Dave replaces Rich Pyrah. Rich was appointed to Yorkshire CCC's coaching staff on 1 October and his new duties have forced him to cancel. He sends his profound apologies and hopes to join us at a future date.

Please note the society's AGM will be held prior to this meeting at 7.15pm.

Next meeting: Wednesday 9 December 2015. Champions' Evening - stars of Yorkshire CCC + Chief Executive Mark Arthur. 

All welcome! Join at any meeting. Only £15 a year / £5 on door.

Venue: Brewery Bar, King William IV, Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BD, 7.30pm for 7.45pm.

Raffle: £2/ticket. Win prizes including tickets to watch Yorkshire CCC at Headingley in 2016.
