Apperley’s Bridge’s Mohammed Junaid made an emotional farewell speech at the Dales Council League’s annual dinner at the Cedar Court Hotel, Bradford.

His club had been expelled from the league nine days earlier at the annual meeting but said: “We have enjoyed playing competitive cricket in this league, and good luck to you for the 2013 season, but now we will push on with renewed vigour ourselves.”

Hepworth & Idle won both umpires’ fair play awards - the Umpires’ Association trophy for the first team and the Les Bulmer trophy for the second team.

Trevor Heylings won the John Morgan Umpire of the year award for the third successive season.
