The Central Yorkshire League will revert to separate first XI and second XI competitions next season, with 12 clubs at Premiership level, eight in the newly-named Championship and the remaining eight in Division One. Places have been allocated on the basis of last season’s finishing positions.
The family of Liversedge stalwart David Myers, who died at home in Mirfield on September 15, have paid tribute to a ‘true gentleman’, committed to cricket, who was ‘witty, intelligent, and incredibly knowledgeable’.
Only four clubs have a longer association with the Central Yorkshire League than Scholes. But next season will be their last, a curtain-call for a move to the Bradford League in 2015.
