Denaby and Cadeby C.C.

The Denaby and Cadeby C.C. has again an excellent prospect of distinction in the Mexborough league, for it has been fortunate enough to retain its players almost entirely during the close season.

Leslie Hoften, the fast bowler and promising bat, left in the middle of last season to play professional cricket down in Derbyshire, and he has not returned.

“Billy” Smith has gone to Bolsover also, and he is a distinct loss, for he was perhaps the most polished bat in the league, and certainly one of the heaviest scorers for the last five years.

In his place there comes Mr H Cusworth, the new assistant under manager at Cadeby, who is a sterling bat, and has rendered good service to the Hoyland Silkstone and Wombwell clubs.

The rest of the team, the Burys, the Robinsons, Peate, Bromfield, Esland, and so on will be available, and will make a bold bid to retain the Whitworth Cup.

Mr Charles Bury is captain, and also secretary this year, and Mr Percy Bury is vice captain.

During the winter an excellent bowling green has been laid, and will be ready for use in three or four weeks. A cricket ticket admits to this pleasurable recreation also.
