Parish Cup & Crossley Shield Results From Sunday

Parish Cup: There were no real shocks in the Parish Cup First Round with all but a few ties going the way of League seniority. The win of Illingworth St Mary’s, whose Matthew Smith hit 101 not out, at Division One Blackley was no real surprise as the newcomer has already set out its promotion stall in Division Two. There was a tight affair between two other newcomers at Leymoor as Birchencliffe scraped home by one-wicket and it was a similar story at Premier Division Northowram HT where First Division Cullingworth lost by a similar margin.

Clarification On Rule 3 U19's Playing Sunday League Cricket

The latest version of the sunday section rules has been uploaded onto the document section of the sunday league tab on the website.All clubs are requested to familiarise themsleves with the rule which has been printed incorrectly in the league handbook. Confirmation of the exact rule has been emailed to all clubs via the league secretary and all sunday captains were made aware at the captains meeting held last month.

Sunday League Fixtures To Remain Unchanged

With the late withdrawal of Southowarma from division 1 and Sowerby St Peter's from division 2 of the HCL Sunday League it is too late to make any changes to the league and cup competition for the forthcoming season. Unfortuantely those teams that were due to meet in the Rod Warhurst Cup and league fixtures will now have a bye but the two clubs affected every week will be encouraged to arrange a friendly game of cricket which is obviosuly far from ideal but at least means people can still enjoy a game of cricket.

Sowerby St. Peter's withdraw from Sunday Section

A shortage of players has forced Sowerby St, Peter's to withdraw from the HSL for 2017.

The late announcement means that the fixture list cannot be amended and therefore those with cup and Division 2 leaue fixtures against them will have no fixtures on those dates.

Captain's Briefing

The Captain's Briefing will be at Sowerby St. Peter's CC on Thursday, 23rd March at 8pm prompt.

All Sunday Section captains or their deputies should attend.
