The break up of the 2013 Clayton side, who were relegated from the Foster’s Halifax League Premier Division, continues.

Batsman Jason Slator has joined Southowram, while all-rounder Chris Ramsden has moved to Thornton.

Both Slator and bowler Sam Wilson, whose switch to Jer Lane was announced in November, had spells at the helm at Clayton last season.

Their secretary Billy Payton said the players had left in search of top-flight cricket and already has replacements in mind, although he isn’t sure of their quality.

Meanwhile, Queensbury have re-signed left-handed batsman and right-arm bowler Josh Dougall from Bradshaw.
