Yorkshire Prepare for Roses Encounter

Yorkshire's Recreational team to play Lancashire County Board in the first round of the newly sponsored Cheltenham and Gloucester Trophy away at Nelson Cricket Ground is announced as follows:

Andy Bethel (Pudsey Congs) Captain
Paul Booth (Cleckheaton)
Gary Brook (Pudsey Congs) Wkt
John Carruthers (Hanging Heaton)
Matthew Doidge (Pudsey Congs)
Steve Foster (Hanging Heaton)
Neil Gill (Pudsey Congs)
Mark Gilliver (Undercliffe)
Simon Mason (York)
Ed McKenna (Sheffield Collegiate)
John Proud (Harrogate)
Peter Swanipool (Sheffield Utd)
Richard Wilkinson (Bradford & Bingley)

The return of Steve Foster after a year in Minor Counties is very welcome as he is regarded as one of the leading players outside the first class game. The Bradford League supplies nine of the squad with four others from the Yorkshire League.

It will be a keen contest with the winners drawn away to the Northants County Board in the second round and the winners from that Match then meeting Northamptonshire in round three which will be staged at Collegiate's Abbeydale Ground.
