JOAN Peel, the only woman to have won the Bradford League’s top honour, the Sir Leonard Hutton Trophy, has died aged 91.

Joan gave 70 years of service to her beloved Undercliffe where her late husband Donald was a former chairman and president.

Receiving the Sir Leonard Hutton Trophy in 2010 was a richly deserved honour for somebody who also gave wonderful support to junior cricket.

She took on many roles at Undercliffe and there was hardly a task that Joan did not perform. Her cheery welcome to visitors to Intake Road was like a ray of sunshine.

League president Keith Moss said: “Joan was a wonderful stalwart of the Undercliffe club. There are not too many left like her today.

“Joan was old school, hard-working, endlessly cheerful, and fiercely proud of the club she and her late husband served so loyally.”

There will be a one minute silence before today's Division One game between Undercliffe and Pudsey Congs in memory of Joan Peel.

Covid continues to cause problems with the league season, as Woodlands' Premier Division game at home to Bradford & Bingley becomes a high profile casualty.

Baildon v Gomersal is off in Division One, as are Buttershaw St Paul's v Spen Victoria and Jer Lane v Scholes in Division Two.
