Leagues set to join forces from 2016

Have your say

The face of senior league cricket in the region looks set to change after next season.

The South Yorkshire Senior League hold their annual meeting at the Rotherham Phoenix clubhouse tomorrow to discuss a new plan for 2016.

It is proposed that the existing South Yorkshire Senior League would administer the new set-up.

Yorkshire League clubs including Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster, Sheffield United, Sheffield Collegiate, and Castleford plus Cleethorpes and Appleby-Frodingham, from the Lincolnshire League would join the new format.

Also for discussion is the proposed amalgamation with the South Yorkshire Alliance, formed four years ago when the old Sheffield League folded up and joined forces with clubs from the Doncaster and District League.

England’s tour of South Africa next winter will last 72 days. The tour, which will be made up of four Tests, five one-day internationals and two Twenty20s, spans December, January and February 2015-16.
