This Sunday at Morley Cricket Club, we are staging a benefit match to honour the twenty years service given by players Colin Nuthall and Richard Winn

Both players are held in high regard not just for their playing exploits, but for their work off the field, so much so that the Bradford Premier Cricket League were more than happy to support Morley's wishes to hold a series of events. In this day and age, no matter what sport, it is remarkable that two players of the same club have stayed loyal to their team without chasing money as many league cricketers do.

Richard, or to some 'Winny' or 'The Daddy' first played at Morley as a 15 year old and debuted that year in the First XI, now twenty seven years on, he is still making an impact with the Second XI. He has taken over 500 wickets in his career, which includes seven hat-tricks. He will be skippering a 'Morley' themed side in the match, which includes son Harvey, who is playing representative cricket at under 15 level with the Heavy Woollen side.

Colin or 'Boony' came from Australia in 1996 and played at March CC in Cambridge. In that one season he must have made such an impression, that 21 years later, they are providing the opposition in todays' game and he will captain them. He came to Morley in 1997, and after a very brief spell at Skipton has been at Morley ever since. It just shows how much an impression Morley made on him that he never went back home and lives her with wife Emma and his two sons.

The match is scheduled for a 2:15pm start, no-one knows how long the game will take, but with a barbecue and ever excellent players tea on offer along with the likelihood of a 'few' beers it promises to be a good day and everyone is more than welcome to attend to support these two great Morley CC amateurs.
