11 November - Rich Pyrah (Dave Callaghan replaces)

East Riding Cricket Society's November speaker will be Yorkshire CCC all-rounder and 2015 Beneficiary Richard Pyrah, who recently called time on a 12-year professional career to take up a full time-post on the club's coaching staff. A versatile bowler, batsman and fielder, Richard made history by taking a catch off James Taylor at Trent Bridge in September 2014 to secure Yorkshire's first Championship in 13 years. But perhaps his finest hour came against Lancashire at Headingley in 2011 when his superb 117 steered Yorkshire to a memorable victory from the seemingly hopeless position of 45 for 8. Richard has also been a key man in the county's limited overs and Twenty20 teams, producing Yorkshire's best T20 bowling performance with his 5-16 at Scarborough in 2014.

The only East Riding date in Richard's benefit year - and a chance to say thanks to a wonderful servant of Yorkshire cricket! 

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.
