DRAKES HUDDERSFIELD CRICKET LEAGUE PREMIERSHIP @ FAR END LANE
17 JUNE 2017 --- 1PM
|FAR END LANE HOME OF HONLEY CRICKET CLUB|
Having departed Honley station on a few occasions for Underbank Rangers and Holmfirth the research into local cricket clubs off the Peninstone Line had led me to mark down a visit to Honley who with their newly refurbished pavilion, clubhouse and changing rooms plus a glorious summers day forecast meant the time was now.
Early departure from base was greeted by the proverbial toddler using the bus into base station as an adventure playground but a slightly stressed exit towards Sheffield saw the blog pick up the previously mentioned Penistone line and again once top side of the town on a bright summers day the beauty of the area becomes self evident all overviewed by Emley Moor TV tower.

Todays picture selection was hard work but in the end features the views and delightfulness of the ground plus 2 influential players on the outcome of the match, always difficult to select.
With a quick change at Sheffield base station was arrived at just before 9pm a long day for a cricket match but an entertaining day in beautiful surroundings in Yorkshire.
