East Riding Cricket Society opens its Golden Jubilee season in fine style with former England all-rounder, selector and limited-overs coach Ashley Giles. Veteran of 54 Tests and 62 One-Day Internationals, Giles played a pivotal role in the 2005 Ashes, his career-best 59 at the Oval helping to seal England's first series win over Australia in 18 years. Now Director of Cricket with Lancashire CCC, Giles coached his side to a successful 2015, securing a T20 Blast triumph and a return to the County Championship Division 1. A renewal of traditional rivalries with back-to-back Champions Yorkshire will be eagerly anticipated in 2016. Other highlights of the winter programme have a strong Yorkshire flavour, including legendary umpire and current club president Dickie Bird, all-rounder and newly appointed coach Richard Pyrah, plus Chief Executive Mark Arthur and First XI players.
