Ours is a beautiful ground with excellent facilities, situated just outside the town centre. We are always pleased to welcome new supporters and members. Please come along.

SECRETARY’S REPORT –AGM 2013
As you will be aware this is my last report as I am stepping down as Secretary.
I became secretary 10 years ago when I had recently retired and Dave Clayton said that he had a little job to pass on some of my time. All I had to do was attend a few meetings and take a few notes. How dumb must I have been?
I have seen good times, such as the 1st XI winning the Heavy Woollen Cup twice, the Yorkshire League for the first time in 2006 and the 2nd XI wining the Mick Savage Cup and the Crowther Cup so many times I cannot remember how many.
There have also been less good times, not really bad, as we have struggled to maintain the high standards that were set. I feel that we have turned the corner and are now on the way up with a good crop of young, enthusiastic players.
I would like to offer my thanks to Kath & Tony Grigg, Dave Clayton, Peter Brannan, Mark Beardshall and Gary Nuttall for the support they have given me from when I started and I hope they give the same support to my successor. Thanks also to Keith Hampshire and Jayne Shaw and Adrian Willis who have helped in more recent times.
Turning to matters within the club Peter will have covered most of the things that I would like to say but just to let people know that we have entered the National Knockout this year after being absent for couple of years.
I would like to finish with offering congratulations to all the captains, Steven Nuttall for his efforts with the 1st XI obtaining a mid table position, Andy Clayton also steering the 2nd XI to mid table despite not knowing who was available after 1st team call ups, Andy Froggett for being like a father to a very young 3rd XI and nearly pulling off the impossible and keeping them in SYL division three and Roy Chapman, Steve Clifford and Keith Hampshire for keeping the 4th XI going despite lack of numbers.
I hope that next season is kind to all our teams and will finish with Up The Griffins
