14 March 2018 - Farokh Engineer, India and Lancashire


Meet a true cricketing legend when Farokh Engineer heads to Cottingham on 14 March. In his new book Farokh, The Cricketing Cavalier, Farokh looks back at many magical moments with Lancashire and India though the 1960s and 1970s. 'He had the ability to lighten up the gloomiest Manchester day, whether on the pitch or off it,' says biographer Colin Evans, former cricket writer for the Manchester Evening News. Nowadays, 40 years after his retirement from the game, he is still warmly welcomed all over the world as an ambassador for cricket.'
 
Signed copies of Farokh, The Cricketing Cavalier will be available.
 
Plus win a 'Legends of Cricket' autograph bat, signed by some of the game's biggest names and raffled to raise fund for charities supporting Mumbai street children.

14 February 2018 - Andrew Gale, YCCC First XI Coach

Meet Yorkshire’s youngest-ever professional captain and current First XI Coach when Andrew Gale heads to Cottingham on 14 February. Aged just 26 when appointed skipper in December 2009, the Dewsbury-born batsman led the club to Championship triumphs in 2014 and 2015, before retiring after a 14-year playing career to follow Jason Gillespie as First XI coach. An aggressive left-hander, with 20 first-class hundreds to his name, Andew debuted in league cricket as an 8-year-old with Gomersal before continuing his development with the Yorkshire Academy. He played international age-group cricket from under-15 to under-19 level, including appearances at the MCG and SCG, and also skippered England Lions to t20 victory over a full England side in 2010. 

Plus your chance to win a YCCC 2017 signed bat - names include England Test captain Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Ryan Sidebottom, Tim Bresnan, Adam Lyth, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett and more. £5 a ticket.
