Any new news will be reported!

The Cleckheaton Sports Club Executive Committee met recently to discuss what happens next at Moorend - and any fresh news will be put forward on the Cricket Section's website.

It appears that even after lockdown, being in tier 3 means no opening times just yet – or does it?

All will become a little clearer soon – we hope?!

Cleck’ Chairman in the dark!

Like most the Cleckheaton CC Chairman Ian Gatenby is as wise as anyone as to what the future holds right now with Juniors cricket in mind in-particular.

The youngsters are the future of the Club and their appearance at Moorend alongside their families is paramount to any success.

The traditional Juniors signing on night is not only a fund-raiser - as it’s usually coupled with a race night - but a chance also for up and coming young players to be a part of our Club that puts real emphasis on a young player’s progress.

Sadly, due to Covid plans have been put on hold in recent months but there may be a glimmer of hope?

Gats commented: “We don’t know anything just yet. Obviously, there’ll be no nets due to Covid – but we are hoping to have a signing on evening in March 2021.”

Ian Gatenby may now be the Cricket Chairman overall but for many years he was the figurehead of the Juniors section and to this day he remains a pivotal figure to the kids and their families

Latest nets update

The Club’s secretary Antony Lee has kindly forwarded photographs of groundwork overseen at Moorend already ahead of further work on the new nets in the Spring.

Antony commented: “The photos show phase 1 completed and will stay like this until spring when phase 2 involves shock pads, playing surface the steel system and nets being installed.”

Fund-raising remains important:

Although things are unclear surrounding the rules in terms of how many guests will be allowed in to the function room in future - the Cricket Section is thinking ahead.

The traditional Annual Dinner is in the diary for Friday March 5th 2021 in the hope that by then things should be ‘back to normal.’

Manchester based comedian Austin Knight is booked as is the fabulous MC/Auctioneer John Collier with someone different joining them - as opposed to the usual kind of speaker.

Impressionist Kevin Connelly has agreed to join the gentlemen named above to provide what is sure to be a night filled with laughter.

Kevin has appeared on Dead Ringers that was a popular TV programme and he's made a great deal more TV appearances besides - and he promises to go down a storm!

Austin last appeared at Cleck’ on behalf of the Cricket Section six years ago and whilst he’s a familiar face on the circuit, he’s tried and trusted and very funny!

In the past the Club has had some great speakers, quite a few average ones and one or two flops but Kevin is the type of act that alongside Austin and John will have guests 'splitting their sides.'

Kevin Connelly is a brilliant impressionist and comedian
