2019 season

Cleck's first game of the season was rain affected. Townville visited Moorend and posted 184-9 but they were at one stage 140-1 but 5-35 from Andrew Deegan and 3-53 from Azeem Rafiq pegged them back.

At 36-1 for Cleck' the game was abandoned as the heavens opened.

Saturday May 4th witnessed a poor display away to Wrenthorpe losing by three wickets with sloppy batting and fielding. Cleck' made 181-9 with John Wood scoring a fifty but in a rain affected match the hosts were worthy winners finishing on 178-7. Azeem Rafiq captured 5-45. Cleck's first win of the season came one week later at home to Lightcliffe but in a rain affected contest. Mally Nicholson's men notched 162 and Tom Kohler-Cadmore back in the fold was out first ball stumped. Woody scored 40 useful runs and there were five wickets for in-form Deegs as the visitors were dismissed for 158 having been 59-7 at one stage.

Saturday May 25th was arguably Cleck's best performance of the season so far, beating a side who have been in good form as Bradford & Bingley were dismissed for 202 in response to Cleck's total of 269-9 as Azeem Rafiq gave a man-of-the-match display scoring 71 runs and achieving four wickets. Nick Walker was in good touch for his 44 and Andy Gorrod notched a useful 31 runs.

Just 48 hours later on Bank Holiday Monday the side capitulated at Undercliffe who made 196-5 off 33 overs in a rain affected game, which included 34 extras! Cleck's response was tame as they were all out for 160 but one bright spot was young Ethan Lee who was the top scorer with 35 runs.

Saturday June 1st witnessed a nail biting two wickets win against Methley thanks to a match winning stand of 102 by Nick Walker and Toby Thorpe who scored 63 and 32 runs, respectively. Cleck' struck 181-8 after being 66-6 at one stage to overhaul the visitors total of 178 with four wickets apiece for John Wood and Craig Flectcher.

Once more the wet weather runied a keen contest on June 15th as Cleck' were dismissed for 93 with 6-15 from Luke Jarvis. Alex Lilley the New Farnley opening bowler had to be taken to hospital following his collapse during an over with what was understood to be chest pains but he was deemed fine, thankfully. In response Andrew Deegan captured 3-15 as the hosts were 38-3 when the game was abandoned due to heavy rain. Just seven days later Cleck's brittle batting meant an easy win for table topping Woodlands. Having been 96-2 the hosts capitulated to 140 all out - Woodlands knocked them off with just two wickets down although Azeem notched a 50 in a stand of 80 runs with Woody.

Saturday June 29th witnessed a thrilling finish at Hanging Heaton with Cleck' winning by two runs after posting 247-9 and the hosts were bowled out for 245 and Mally Nicholson took a brilliant diving catch off Nick Walker's bowling at the very end. Nick captured five wickets having earlier scored 72 not out. Also, there were good contributions from Azeem Rafiq with his 48 runs and both Mally and Craig Fletcher did their bit with 32 and 30 runs, respectively. Sixteen-year-old Ethan Lee made 24 useful runs and he took a couple of splendid catches - one in-particular that was stunning and game changing to dismiss the ever dangerous Ben Kohler-Cadmore.

The first Saturday in July arguably gave Cleck' their most emphatic win of the season so far - away to a good Townville side the Moorenders won by six wickets with the home side skittled out for 73 and the star of the show was Johnny Whiteoak with a brilliant return of 6-38 whilst John Wood notched 2-21 and in reply Cleck' made 74-4.
