Last season, the Nidderdale Overseas were victorious by 33 runs in a superb game at Rainton scorecard which was memorable for Dan Major’s 120 and Tom Gooday’s 4-49. This year we travel to Glasshouses, arguably one of the most picturesque grounds in the League and reknowned for its hospitality. It would be great to have as much support as possible.
