Yorkshire chiefs honour 30 years of support
Director of Professional Cricket Martyn Moxon and Finance Director Charles Hartwell paid tribute to Yorkshire County Cricket Supporters’ Association at their 30th anniversary lunch in the Executive Suite at Headingley Carnegie.
Charles, in proposing the toast to the Club, told of the unstinting support the Association provides, and Martyn, who spoke at the Association’s first meeting in the autumn of 1981 and is an Association Patron, said how much he looked forward to another 30 years! His toast was “ To cricket!”
Honorary Life member Christine Kilburn proposed a toast to the Association, and Chairwoman Charlotte Evers particularly thanked three men who do so much to publicise the work of the Association through the YCCC website, the electronic scoreboard at Headingley Carnegie and the public-address system.

The event drew a record attendance of 101 members, and a raffle for cricket funds raised £225.50p. Charlotte said: “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, and we are extremely grateful to all who so generously donated prizes for the raffle.”
Charlotte extended congratulations at the lunch to member Trevor Constantine, who has been awarded the Order of Mercy Medal for his 15 years of voluntary work at Bradford Royal Infirmary. Trevor, who received his medal at a ceremony at the Mansion House in London from Lord Linfield, President of the Order of Mercy, is chairman and treasurer of the Friends of Bradford Royal Infirmary.
