Meeting 11 November - Dave Callaghan


Former Sports Editor of Radio Leeds, Dave Callaghan is now the BBC's 'Voice of Yorkshire Cricket', his ball-by-ball commentary on all Yorkshire CCC matches updating supporters from Beverley to Bulgaria, Aldbrough to Australia. No one has a closer view of the club and its players, and the summer of 2015 offers a host of talking points for his traditional season review - including Yorkshire's back-to-back Championship triumphs, England call-ups for Root, Ballance, Bairstow, Rashid, Plunkett and Lyth, Joe Root heading the world batting rankings, an exciting new signing in David Willey, and much, much more.  

In this change to the advertised programme, Dave replaces Rich Pyrah. Rich was appointed to Yorkshire CCC's coaching staff on 1 October and his new duties have forced him to cancel. He sends his profound apologies and hopes to join us at a future date.

Please note the society's AGM will be held prior to this meeting at 7.15pm.

Next meeting: Wednesday 9 December 2015. Champions' Evening - stars of Yorkshire CCC + Chief Executive Mark Arthur. 

All welcome! Join at any meeting. Only £15 a year / £5 on door.

Venue: Brewery Bar, King William IV, Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BD, 7.30pm for 7.45pm.

Raffle: £2/ticket. Win prizes including tickets to watch Yorkshire CCC at Headingley in 2016.

11 November - Rich Pyrah (Dave Callaghan replaces)


East Riding Cricket Society's November speaker will be Yorkshire CCC all-rounder and 2015 Beneficiary Richard Pyrah, who recently called time on a 12-year professional career to take up a full time-post on the club's coaching staff. A versatile bowler, batsman and fielder, Richard made history by taking a catch off James Taylor at Trent Bridge in September 2014 to secure Yorkshire's first Championship in 13 years. But perhaps his finest hour came against Lancashire at Headingley in 2011 when his superb 117 steered Yorkshire to a memorable victory from the seemingly hopeless position of 45 for 8. Richard has also been a key man in the county's limited overs and Twenty20 teams, producing Yorkshire's best T20 bowling performance with his 5-16 at Scarborough in 2014.

The only East Riding date in Richard's benefit year - and a chance to say thanks to a wonderful servant of Yorkshire cricket!

Thanks, Gilo!

Test star Ashley Giles launched East Riding Cricket Society's Golden Jubilee programme on Wednesday 14 October with a wonderful evening of cricket chat at the King William IV, Cottingham. Quizzed by journalist Brian Halford, the ex-England spinner led a packed house from his idyllic Surrey childhood to the heart of England's nailbiting 2005 Ashes triumph - from defeat at Lords, via a view from the middle of Kevin Pietersen's crucial 158* in the final Oval Test, to celebrations on the steps of 10 Downing Street. Beyond the first-class game, Ashley was a proud team captain in the highest-ever cricket match, a 10-over affair played at 5,752m on Mount Kilimanjaro in September 2014. Battling altitude sickness and biting cold, with temperatures down to -20C, thirty climbers raised over £200,000 for charities including Cancer Research UK. Ashley and his wife Stine have also recently founded their own charity, the Giles' Trust, helping to fund brain tumour research at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

Ashley enjoyed himself, too. 'Thanks, really enjoyable night,' he tweeted. 'Best of luck with your 50th Anniversary celebrations!'

Next meeting: Wednesday 11 November 2015. Don't miss Yorkshire all-rounder Richard Pyrah in one of the final events of his 2015 Benefit Season. The AGM will be held before this meeting at 7.15pm.

Meeting 14 October 2015 - Ashley Giles

East Riding Cricket Society opens its Golden Jubilee season in fine style with former England all-rounder, selector and limited-overs coach Ashley Giles. Veteran of 54 Tests and 62 One-Day Internationals, Giles played a pivotal role in the 2005 Ashes, his career-best 59 at the Oval helping to seal England's first series win over Australia in 18 years. Now Director of Cricket with Lancashire CCC, Giles coached his side to a  successful 2015, securing a T20 Blast triumph and a return to the County Championship Division 1. A renewal of traditional rivalries with back-to-back Champions Yorkshire will be eagerly anticipated in 2016. Other highlights of the winter programme have a strong Yorkshire flavour, including legendary umpire and current club president Dickie Bird, all-rounder and newly appointed coach Richard Pyrah, plus Chief Executive Mark Arthur and First XI players.

All welcome! Join at any meeting. Only £15 a year. £5 on door.

Venue: Brewery Bar, King William IV, Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BD, 7.30pm for 7.45pm.
