Cleck’s side to face Undercliffe;

It is a possibility that both teams will play 12-a-side in Cleck’s friendly at Undercliffe on Saturday April 21st at Intake Road with the team as follows.

Mally Nicholson (Captain) – Nick Lindley (Vice Captain) – John Wood – Toby Thorpe – Elliot Hallas – Shahid Rehman – Alex Midgley – Ethan Lee – Andrew Deegan – Josh Thurwell – Johnny Whiteoak – Joe Robinson

It’s good to see teenagers Ethan and Alex included in the side as their development plan takes off and the experience of not just playing against good opposition but mixing with seasoned First Team players, will be a step forward in their progression.

For the first League game of the season at New Farnley on Saturday April 28th overseas Tayyab Tahir, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Dave Paynter and Nick Walker are all available to play.

Meanwhile, the Cricket Section has to pay best wishes to Greg Abbott the Head of Recruitment at Bradford City who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Abbo’ is well known in the BD19 and BD4 districts and he’s a good friend of so many especially at Cleck’ and East Bierley and he said very recently; “I have been overwhelmed by messages of good wishes but I am in good hands and although my daughter Lauren has laid down the law that I must recover fully before returning to work, I’ll soon be back doing the job I love.”

The Cleck' guys are ready and raring to go for the new season


Cleck’ continues to be ‘Razor’ sharp!

Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock has agreed to oversee an ‘Evening With’ at Moorend on Friday July 13th

The 49-year-old former Millwall, Tottenham, Southampton, Liverpool and West Ham central defender played over 350 games at professional level as well as representing England.

He has become a popular TV personality and actor but was renowned in football as one of the ‘hardest ever’ players. He’s appeared on a number of TV programmes including ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ and produced a reality sports TV show called; ‘Football saved my life’ – plus a great deal more.

‘Razor’ Ruddock is a true character and he has agreed to come to Cleck’ ‘purely as a favour’ due to his professional dealings with the Club’s latest signing Nick Walker.

The Cricket Committee is indebted to Nick to bring such a high profile figure to Moorend.

During the coming weeks tickets will be on sale at £15 per person and an MC will be announced in the near future. Tickets will be available to purchase early May with further details to follow soon.

In addition, both first and second team players got together at the Club on Easter Tuesday with CaptainMally Nicholson delighted at the turn out.

The next fund-raising event planned is the ‘Ladies Luncheon’ that sees a great deal of input from the Sports Club as a whole, which is on Saturday June 23rd. Everyone’s support would be greatly appreciated. On that note, despite Mrs Anne Wood supposedly retiring from her kitchen duties, Anne has kindly agreed to oversee the food side of the event and her experience in that role is invaluable! All we need are as many ladies from the Cricket Section that we can pull together to enhance the excellent support given from the Sports Club’s ladies’ members.

Ian ‘Sludge’ Lees is the brilliant comedian appointed for the luncheon.

Fish & Chips luncheon in 'plaice'!!
