John Walker: Definitely Guiseley CC. Football field behind the trees on the right and the swings behind the pavilion. Second from right stood up is Ronnie Claughton.
Andrew Dalton: You’re right John. The umpire was a Guiseley man but can’t put a name to him.
Frances Haigh: These are all members of the Claughton family. The umpire is Alan and the others are Jim, Ronnie Brian and Marsden. The 2 young boys are Ronnie’s sons Andrew and John.
Lawrence Walker: Yes definitely Claughton family at Guiseley CC, John Claughton played for Oxford University and county cricket for Warwickshire.
Rachel O’Connor: That is when it was the old wooden pavilion at Guiseley CC.

Jim Claughton moved to Hull and was a member of one of the Hull Rotary Clubs.
He died a few years back but I think his widow Mimi is still around.
Does anyone remember Cedric Walsh and his whirling bowling action?
Happy days watching Guiseley in the Airedale and Wharfedale League!
