New Farnley Old Boys vs Old Tablelands – 17/06/24

Yesterday, New Farnley Cricket Club played host to a New Zealand touring team called Old Tablelands from Wellington. The game was played in the right spirit and everyone enjoyed socialising afterwards with a beer and a bite to eat from the BBQ. Scorer Noel Bullock managed to grab a photograph with former Blackcaps talisman Hamish Marshall and they both had a good chin wag. Chairman John Baldwin was presented with a bottle of wine as a thank you and he’s also got a plaque that will no doubt be put up on the wall inside the clubhouse.

Howard Davies RIP

Everyone at New Farnley Cricket Club are deeply saddened following the passing of Howard Davies earlier this week. Howard was simply a part of the club’s furniture and if ever there was a “Super” Loyalty Card holder, Howard would have been top of the list, whether it was on a Wednesday evening having a drink and a chat with his close friends, having a meal on a Thursday evening with his family, having a “Happy couple of hours” socialising on a Friday tea time, enjoying a breakfast on a Saturday morning whilst waiting for Mags in the gym, being a “member” of the “Western Terrace Ultras” on cricket matchdays and being a regular supporter and attendee at many of the club’s social events. He was always very jovial and sociable and loved his family dearly, more often or not his conversation would start with “Are Andy”, everyone enjoyed his company, whether it was whilst talking to the ground staff when walking the dogs, listening to his thoughts and opinions on @leedsunited or having a quick chat whilst he ferried and shuttled drinks from the bar. Our thoughts go out to all of the family, Mags, Andy, Claire, Niamh, Ruby, Ian, Harry, Austin, Bronwyn, John, James, Nicola and his close friends, Dave Watson, Mick Punter, Mick Hector & Pat Graham plus many, many more. Prior to today’s (Saturday 1st June 2024) game against Ossett, we held a minutes silence at 11:45am as a mark of tribute. We will all miss him dearly. RIP Howard Davies 🙏

Everyone at New Farnley Cricket Club are deeply saddened and devastated to hear of the tragic news about Robert John Charles Hiscoe.

Rob was a local hero and very popular character around New Farnley and the wider Leeds Community, fondly remembered during lockdown for entertaining everyone “Vera Lynn” style with his nightly singing shows that lasted well into the early hours of the morning until the bottle of gin was no more, raising thousands of pounds for the

Rob sung many times at the club, brightening up parties and celebrations with his wonderful voice making the events special and memorable, he also brightened up many living and dining rooms, hallway, stairs, landings, bedrooms and kitchens with his wonderful decorating skills.

Personally, Rob sang at our President’s Stephen Dalby‘s 40th and 50th birthdays and Rachel Dalby Was Welbourne‘s 40th which were very special and decorated their house from top to bottom on many of occasions, singing as he went along, wonderful value for money.

Our sincere condolences go out to Christina HiscoeNevaeh HiscoeNyla-Rae Hiscoe and his wider family and close friends.
