Derek Shuttleworth Bradford Junior Cricket League

Derek Shuttleworth Bradford Junior Cricket League


To All Clubs

I am pleased to inform you that the League will now be known as the Derek Shuttleworth Bradford Junior Cricket League following the receipt today of a significant legacy from Derek's estate. Derek sadly passed away in January 2019.

Derek had a fond love for junior cricket and although he was never a member of the League’s Management Committee, he will always be remembered for the amount of unselfish hours he gave to the junior game.


We are grateful that Derek chose the Bradford Junior League as one of his legacies and I know that he would be very proud that his name and memory will live on in the 'Derek Shuttleworth Bradford Junior Cricket League'


The picture of Derek, in his umpiring gear, is how most who knew him will remember him. 


On another note let's hope we get some junior cricket later in the summer. We will take the advice on when this will be from the Government and ECB.


At the appropriate time we will endeavour to arrange fixtures for the remainder of the season in a realistic format as possible. As we move forward we will keep you updated on any progress 


In the meantime please keep safe and well. 


Our thoughts are with all clubs at this difficult time
