Cricket: Meggies hoping new import will excel with bat and ball
CLEETHORPES CC open their Yorkshire League campaign with a tough trip to Scarborough tomorrow – weather permitting.
James Osmond once again leads the side that finished an excellent third in a title race won on the penultimate weekend of the season by York for their fifth title on the trot.
With South African overseas player Graham Hume having made an early impression with a 33-ball half-century in a comfortable 50-run win over Hornsea, Cleethorpes are hoping for great things from their import and, despite a wet pitch in freezing conditions, was still able to force the batsmen onto the back foot with some real pace.
Cleethorpes' top order remains intact this year, although they will be without Charlie Tomlinson for a fortnight due to him having his appendix removed.
