It is with great sadness that I have to report the sad and untimely death of Simon Stirling latterly of Carlton but who was also a great servant to East Ardsley & Wakefield St Michaels. After playing the game the way it should always be played, hard but fair and generally hitting the ball miles out of the ground, Simon unfortunately lost his final match last week. Simon's funeral will be held on Tuesday 30th December at Stanley Methodist Church at 10.30.
An excellent cricketer and a fantastic man, the CYCL has lost one of its most respected players. Our thoughts are with Simon's family and friends at this sad time.
