East Riding Cricket Society 2023/24

Now meeting at Beverley Town CC on a Thursday or Monday evening. 

Next up on Thursday 30 November 7.45pm is Hornsea-born cricket historian and journalist Jeremy Lonsdale in conversation.

Please note: our AGM will precede this meeting, starting at 7.15pm.

He is also Deputy Editor of County Cricket Matters, the quarterly magazine launched in 2020 by Annie Chave.

Taking us from Beverley to Burma, from Cleckheaton to Colombo – Jeremy will touch on topics such as the origins of East Riding cricket, the role of YCCC in the wider Yorkshire scene, the great Yorkshire side of the 20s (Holmes, Sutcliffe, Rhodes, Leyland), and the perils and pleasures of a six-month tour of the sub-continent.
