Special match to mark milestone

PLAYERS past and present will face off in a special match at Todmorden Cricket Club on New Year’s Day.

A team of current cricketers at the Centre Vale club will take on a side made-up of players who have represented Todmorden in previous years in a match to kick-off the club’s 175th anniversary year.

Tony Gledhill, from the club, said: “It’s something we used to do years ago and we thought we’d resurrect it for the anniversary year.”

The match starts at noon. Refreshments available. All welcome.
