23rd August 2015 League through to final of West Yorkshire Area Cricket Council Cup
On Sunday 23rd August the League team took on South Yorlshire Cricket League in the semi final of the West Yorkshire Area Cricket Council Cup for the third time since its inception four years ago after winning last year. Congratulations go to all the team who played in this match and previously after winning by 4 wickets and thanks to the hosts Pool Cricket Club.
In a 80 over match South Yorkshire batted first on a sunny day and lost wickets at regular intervals, opener Michael Brown scoring 22 and number five James Ward 36 as they fell disappointedly to 103 all out in 32.4 overs. The Aire Wharfe bowlers were dominant, Robert Spivey 6 overs, 2-10, George Myers 8 overs 2-18, Andy Laws 8 overs 2-32, Bradley Reeve 6 overs 2-23, Harry Smallwood 2.4 overs 2-12, Ben Morley completed 2 overs for 3 runs, a great display.
The weather was closing in when the Aire Wharfe took to the crease, an opening stand of 41 with Josh Atkinson (20) and Ben Morley (38) in 6.3 overs set up the innings and never really looked in trouble as number 3 Andy Laws (12) joined Ben and took the score to 72 in the 13th over before Ben was out. A ‘kamikaze’ session of 5 overs saw a slump from 72-2 to 83-6, losing Ollie Hardaker. Andy Laws, Ed Brown and Bailey Worcester, which although the weather was closing in seemed rather rash. George Myers (11 no) and Harry Smallwood (14 no in 12 balls) steadied the ship, saw it home as darkness was descending in the 21st over. Micky Bullock, Bradley Reeve, Robert Spivey and Mark Wilkinson were not require to bat. Of the South Yorkshire bowling, the wicket takers were Shawn Hopkinson 5 overs 3-27, Mark Wilkinson 4 overs 2-7 and Mike Japps 6 overs 1-39.
In the end a good win with a wobble and fortunately just before the rains came as the players left the pitch, the final will be played in the Halifax area against the Bradford Evening League . Once again thanks to the players, Chris Smith and Tony Crowther on behalf of the League.
26.08.2015 Grey Fox Trophy
Congratulations to Bolton Villas have qualified for the final of The Grey Fox Trophy for Over 50’s at Scarborough CC on Sunday 13th September after beating The Nidderdale Not-So-Youngs on The Duckworth Lewis Method at Headingley on Sunday. Sadly it could not be an-all AWSCL Final as Hall Park Templars lost out in a close semi-final to The Bradford Bhuddays despite a marvellous knock of 73 from Peter Stephenson who was smashing maximums into the Rugby Stand End. Anyone wishing a day out why not come along.
This is the date of the Chappell Cup Final between Burley and Steeton, 1.00 p.m. at Green Lane Cricket Club
Guiseley are holding a Memorial Game against Menston in honour of our sadly departed President, Hedley Houseman, on Monday 31st August (Bank Holiday) with a 1pm start. He used to play for both clubs.

36 clubs are divided into three divisions. The league is run by the management committee and other than the general rules of cricket, rule amendments are suggested and voted upon by all the member clubs.
Two clubs are relegated from divisions 1 and 2 each year (those finishing in the bottom two places), with two clubs being promoted from the division below.
The two clubs finishing, bottom and second to bottom respectively, of the third division must state its case for re-election each year.
The 36 clubs are spread over a relatively wide geographical area in North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. The location of the clubs broadly follows the valleys and landscapes of the River Aire and the River Wharfe.
The league is known for being well organised as competently run by the management committee and the standard of cricket is considered to be one of the best of Yorkshire league cricket.
The ‘A&WSCL’ is remarkable for its diversity. There are small village style teams as well as established multi-sport clubs within the competition, often competing on similar terms.
In recent years the league has progressed in terms of quality and preparation.
The diversity extends to the physical grounds themselves, some being rural and picturesque whilst other are more charming inner city facilities.
