SCARBOROUGH CRICKET CLUB APPOINT NEW PRESIDENT

Scarborough Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Kenelm Storey has agreed to become the new President.

Kenelm said, “I’m hugely honoured to be taking on the position of president at the club and I hope I can help this great club progress.”

 “I’m already actively involved and, living relatively nearby, I am readily available to do more. I’m looking forward to meeting all those involved with the club I haven’t yet met and building a good relationship with the club.

 “When the club approached me it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. I have, as so many people do, great memories of my early visits – in my case in the 1970s. Then I have a family connection, with both my maternal Cayley grandfather (after whom I am named) and great-grandfather being president, and my son (about the age now, I was then) playing for Scarborough & Ryedale (U11s & 12s, last summer). He has even played at NMR, so I was very keen to play my part.

 “This summer is going to be massive for the club, starting with the Roses match in June, then Kumar Sangakkara launching the 50 over fiesta in July, followed by David Gower speaking at the Festival Dinner in August. So, with these two icons of the sport and all the fantastic cricket being played at the club – during which we all hope to see Yorkshire excel, it’s set to be another summer to remember.

 “Finally, I’m hoping that everyone will continue to do all they can to support the club because it’s an absolute gem on our doorstep.

 “I look forward to seeing you all there”.

All at Scarborough Cricket Club would like to extend their thanks to outgoing President, Phillip Hodson.
