Thanks and well done Saltburn which was my Dads first club a long time ago.

Lovely ground and I recall their clubhouse bar used to make it into the good pub guide

A big thank you to John Fuller for the article on the Saltburn Sharks - located in an area of Yorkshire which is often overlooked in a cricketing context.
The success of the Under 19s at the club this season has been well deserved and the squad contains some very competent young cricketers, suggesting a promising period ahead for Saltburn CC.
Third Ump.- I may have met your Dad - I played for Saltburn from 1981 until 1993. Ken Fawcett.

Sadly he pre dates you by about thirty years although I'm likely to have played against you when I was at guisborough as a junior from 1976-1985

"For a photographer, the geography of Hanging Heaton is a treasure with its undulating, split level grass shelves that lend a skewed perspective."

Not quite so much fun if you're running round the boundary and the ground suddenly disappears from under you, causing you to damage muscles in your hip and miss the first few games of the 1969-70 rugby season.

a bit like running down that hill at saltburn. who would have thought a club like guisborough would be relegated from the premier league.

I used to go for a drink at HH's club house and the pub next door, the fox and hounds.

I'm hoping I avoid the hat trick this summer with my football team (Middlesbrough), ex club cricket team (Guisborough) already relegated and my county cricket team perilously close.
But yes marsker, it's a sad day to see Guisborough decline and I was chatting to another former player at the weekend who says theyvhsfe not really invested in youth which served them so well in the past. I know one of their most talented junior players could not play Saturdays due to work so he racks up easy runs in the thirds on a Sunday and it's a shame others like Chris Allinson did not stay with their home club when they gave up with Yorkshire.

With their facilities and size of catchment area they should still do better but I gather the local school despite being a sports college isn't doing a lot to encourage cricket either. In my time we had three or four teachers who taught us in the week and then shared a changing room with us at the weekend. Plus we had several stalwarts who stayed at guisborough come what may and we could pick up stronger plAyers from the Cleveland league teams like Skelton Castle and local villages like Great Ayton but they have now overtaken us.
