Yorkshire match at Chickenley


A copy of a Yorkshire county match programme from 1960.

Five things to note from the programme:

  1. Note the name of the county organisation - Yorkshire County AMATEUR Bowling Association

  2. Note the venue. There can't have been many county matches held at Chickenley.

  3. Note the date. A county match played on a Saturday would almost be unheard of nowadays but 62 years ago no bowling matches would have been played on a Sunday

  4. Almost half of the Yorkshire team comes from Huddersfield area clubs

  5. Thirteen different clubs were represented among the 12 Yorkshire team members and 2 reserves

It is also interesting to note that in 1960 the players would be wearing numbers as published in the programme as a means of identification.
