Nidderdale League – 2nd XI

black sheep

The 2016 season ended in disappointment for the club’s 2nd XI finishing in 11th place of division 4 of the Nidderdale Cricket League and being relegated on a lower run rate than that of Studley Royal.

With an influx of new players to the club during the winter this should benefit the second team, as they look to bounce straight back from last seasons disappointment. It is expected that 2017 will continue to see the club use the side to introduce its increasing number of older juniors into the side, playing alongside some of the 2nd teams more experienced regulars. Despite relegation there is a good feeling that this season will prove to be much better than the last.

Chairman Mark Ellis will skipper the side again and will be able to call up on the experience offered by the likes of Adam Smith, Derek Chapman and Jez Smith. Vice Captain Ollie Ambler who had a fine 2016 will lead the increasing number of under 21’s in the side which include, Kieran Bramley, our leading wicket taker last year, Sam Ambler, Harry Hill, Tom Smith and Peter Hopwood.
