The Upper Airedale Junior Cricket Association are counting down the days until the start of their new season next Wednesday.
The St George’s Day kick-off features the under-15s Pro Coach Academy League, with the first round of eight matches including 2013 double winners Oxenhope travelling to play 2014 title favourites Cullingworth.
The following Sunday sees under-13 league and cup winners Cullingworth host neighbours Wilsden in the Brook Taverner League.
The same day has the UAJCA’s newest under-11 team Embsay at Settle for their baptism in the North Yorkshire Conference of the CartaSport League.
Overall this summer’s league composition remains the same as in 2013, with 68 teams across the patch.
