Here we go again. Is it Honley Casuals?

Very preliminary discussions have taken place with Rob Moore, Chairman of Honley CC, to explore social cricket for the club’s younger end and some of those nearing the close¬†of their league careers. It’s terrific that he’s keen not to lose the Casuals’ history and ethos. Certain individuals and oppositions were mentioned and we have arranged to meet again.

Let’s hope it gets off the ground.


Social cricket in the Holme Valley

There is no support for social cricket at Thongsbridge and Almondbury Casuals is moribund. There are still teams at Upperthong and Holmbridge.

It’s all very sad, but I’m not being involved from now on.

Almondbury Casuals special meeting

Around 20 good men and true attended the Farnley Cock on the evening of the 12th March 2014. The intention was to review the future of the Almondbury Casuals and what was to be done about the standing orders that habitually enact at this time of year.

The decision was to arrange 2-3 fixtures this year, one against Old Aldmonburians, and keep the money coming. Both of these measures could help to keep the club alive until such time as there are enough players and the management has the energy and drive to make things happen.

Duncan Cleave, Nick Bone and Bill Crosland expressed interest in playing and helping out on the day of the fixtures.
