Yorkshire to Field an Under-120 County Team in 2017-18


Current under-140 captain David G Mills, of Hull, has volunteered to take on the captaincy of an under-120 team as well.  Players not listed below who are interested in playing for either of these teams, please advise David (details at foot of page), giving their contact details: Name. Address. Telephone number. E-mail address. E.C.F. grade and reference number.


This is, of course, subject to availability of sufficient players.  David says:

I have the contact details of a few players graded under 120 who played in the under 140 grade team this year and feel that they would be better placed in an under 120 grade team.  This does mean that I will need additional players for the pool of under 140 grade players and more for the under 120 team.  At the moment the numbers available for selection, if placed in the appropriate categories are as follows:-


Under 140 – 17

Phill Beckett – 139

Mate Ther – 139

Aditya Tangirala – 138

J. Gerry Johnstone – 135

Bruce Oliver – 135

Andy Ross – 134

Dave Stothard – 134

David Mills – 134

Alec Grice – 133

Neville Pearce – 131

John K. Holiday - 130

Ian Strickland - 129

Paul Gelder – 129

Norman Andrews - 128

Stephen Greep – 127

Richard White - 121

Dale Cullum – 121


Under 120 – 4

John Brooke – 117

Stephen Forbes – 116

Steve Harrington – 111

Steve Burton – 106



It is very unlikely that all of the under 140 grade players will be available on the same day.  I would be grateful if the maximum publicity could be made available in order to boost numbers for both teams.  Please ask players interested to contact me. (Name. Address. Telephone number. E-mail address. E.C.F. grade and reference number.)
