UAJCA 2022 PRESENTATION NIGHT

   THE UAJCA CRICKETERS-of-the-YEAR 2022

Friday 30th September was the date or the 2022 Presentation Night, this year for the first time hosted by the Bradford & Bingley Rugby Union Club. Our thanks go to Erica and the B & B events team for their efforts on the day. The Night proved exciting in front of an enormous attendance that just about squeezed into the events room at the club. Our guest for the evening was Katie Stewart the YCB manager for Development of Womens and Girls Cricket in West Yorkshire. Katie outlined the extent of the rise in W&G cricket referring to a 12-team league in Leeds-Wetherby. She also welcomed our own initiative and is keen to work with us in taking next steps towards a full Pathway for girls in Upper Airedale.

An extensive range of prizes now fully recognising the development of girls cricket and the continuing rise in softball cricket for all genders. There were 73 individual awards and 14 team presentations. The usual schedule of 90 minutes did though over-run and for future years may need to be planned as a 2-hour event. UAJCA is also grateful for voluntary professional photography supplied by Mr Ali Haidery and his son from Timeless Clicks. The vast attendance over the two sub-parts is difficult to enumerate but was way ahead of recent years. It is encouraging for all our member clubs and bodes well for further development.

All the prize winners are listed below accompanied by the excellent photos from Mr Haidery.
