Harrogate was chosen to host the 2010 Golden Oldies Cricket Festival, and the Niddderdale Amateur Cricket League undertook the coordination of the Festival with the help of various local companies and organisations. It was a huge success. Ever since, we have been sending Nidderdale Players to the far flung corners of the world.
The next festival is in Cape Town, South Africa between 22nd and 29th March. Details can be found on the festival website. Players leave the UK on the 19th March and have a very strong squad of 15 players – with umpire (Brian Kenney), scorer (Shelagh Kenney). With wives and supporters we are well over 30 in the party.
Thinking further ahead, the 2017 Golden Oldies is in Barbados! Check out the festival website for more information.
