  On Saturday as guests of Yorkshire Bank five of our juniors were treated to see the YB40 final at Lords. Lucy Yates was lucky enough to be asked to be the mascot for Nottinghamshire and was seen on Sky TV as the captains tossed up before the game.

The scheme is all part of Yorkshire Banks on-going...

  In 2008, for the first time in the club’s history, we fielded four Saturday XIs in addition to the five existing junior sides, continuing the expansion of the club’s activities and giving an opportunity for even more members to participate in the sport each weekend. The First Team had a disappointing season, finishing in mid-table after being well in contention for promotion at the half-way stage of the season when the side was in third place.  Indeed, after the victory at Nutbrook...
