Dukinfield CC AGM and player registration evening
Monday 27th March 2017 @ 12:18 by Mark Phillip

Dukinfield Cricket Club are holding their Annual General Meeting at 7pm this evening.

The event will also provide the opportunity for players to sign on for the forthcoming season.

A senior membership has been priced at £40.

Dukinfield’s first team will be competing in the Greater Manchester Division One for a second consecutive season in April.

Dukinfield flirted with relegation for large parts of the 2016 season, but maintained their Division 1 status with a couple of games to go.

They were indebted to James McDougall, who accumulated 722 runs, amongst which were 2 centuries and 4 fifties.

Pro Yohan de Silva arrived late courtesy of the stringent Home Office rules – something that many Clubs throughout the North West also fell foul of.

With just over 500 runs he made an adequate contribution, but perhaps not as significant as the Higher King Street outfit would have wished for.
