It is with much sadness that we learn of the death of Arthur Hobson following a long illness. Arthur was a keen supporter of Woodlands Cricket Club over many years and he, alongside his wife Nolene, was a generous Patron of the Club.In his playing days Arthur opened the bowling for the second eleven with much success over a number of seasons. In recent years he had become an avid supporter of both first and second eleven teams. It would be fair to say that Arthur particularly enjoyed watching second eleven cricket from his vantage point in front of our Sports Hall. His interest in the team was such that he could often be seen giving advice to players who would go on to benefit from his wide cricketing knowledge. Our special thoughts go to Nolene and her family on their sad loss.

We have taken delivery of a donation of Dettol hand sanitiser to distribute to juniors and club members. Many thanks to Kev Blanchard at Reckitt Benckiser Group for this fantastic gesture.
After almost 18 months of Woodland’s not seeing any cricket, it was definitely good to be back! A great start to the season for both the 1st & 2nd teams with both of them securing victory at their matches. Our 1st team played away at Townsville and won by 10 runs, scoring a total of 168 runs. Our 2nd team played at home against Lightcliffe, scoring 221 for 8 winning by 2 wickets. Brilliant play and well done. Keep it up lads!
You may be aware there has been some confusion over whether spectators are allowed to attend cricket games. The League, following consultation with the ECB, have contacted all clubs and advised spectators are NOT allowed to attend games until 17 May. This includes watching games from your own car. You are permitted to attend & enjoy hospitality facilities but you must be sat at a table at all times (other than going to the toilet), remain socially distant and purchase food or drink. Table service must be provided.Please see the link below which contains the letter we have received from David Young, Chairman of the Gordon Rigg Bradford Premier League.view the letter here
