Denaby and Cadeby Club Annual Meeting

8 December 1920

Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Wednesday 08 December 1920

Denaby and Cadeby Club.

At the annual meeting of the Denaby and Cadeby Cricket Club deep regret was expressed at the forthcoming departure of Mr. H. W. Smith, the first team captain, and appreciation of the important work he has performed on behalf of the club was shown by electing him a life member.

Mr. H. C. Harrison presided.

The club had had a most successful season, he said. The first team had played in the final test match for the Doncaster League Championship, and the second team finished third in the Minor League.

The balance-sheet showed a bank overdraft of £295; more than half the year’s expenditure had been upon ground improvements, and they now had a ground which, for a colliery village, stood alone.

Admittance having been obtained to the Yorkshire Council, he urged the members of the club to put forward their best efforts to secure a creditable Place in that class of cricket.
