14 December 2016 - Yorkshire CCC Evening

Mark Arthur, December 2015
A chance to quiz Chief Executive Mark Arthur and Commercial Director Andy Dawson, alongside spinners Azeem Rafiq and Karl Carver, and paceman Ben Coad. For YCCC, 2016 was a season of near misses - with semi-final losses in T20 Blast and RL 1-day competitions to set alongside a third place finish in the County Championship. And, looking ahead, 2017 will see changes at the club, with new 1st XI coach Andrew Gale replacing Jason Gillespie, and a new captain, as yet to be announced. Elsewhere within the county, 2016 brought innovation - with the Yorkshire Diamonds featuring in the inaugural Women's T20 competition, and the introduction of a pyramid structure for club cricket, culminating in an Abu Dhabi final. Add the international success of Yorkshire players, county cricket finances, problems over the planned redevelopment of Headingley Stadium, MCC's red card proposals ... a lively evening is guaranteed!

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

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

Raffle: £2/ticket - prizes include 2017 Yorkshire CCC match tickets
