Cook on the Society’s menu

Have your say

FORMER England spinner Nick Cook is the guest speaker at Sheffield Cricket Lovers Society’s meeting on Monday at Abbeydale Park (7.45).

Nick, formerly with Leicestershire and Northants, is now a first-class umpire.

The Society have made a switch for their final speaker on the first half of the season.

Jack Birkenshaw, the former Yorkshire, Leicestershire and England spinner, has had to move dates and so his replacement on December 5 will be Frank Duckworth, one half of the Duckworth/Lewis method.

n Yorkshire’s wicketkeeper/batsman Gerard Brophy is guest at the next meeting of Wombwell Cricket Lovers Society.

He will chat with cricket broadcaster Dave Callaghan at the meeting on October 20 held at Ardsley Oaks WMC.
