I have recently been asked whether I have any information about when Goole cricket club was formed. I have some pictures but not much about the history of the club.
I am still searching but have come up with the newspaper clipping below which is from the Hull newspaper and describes a match in August 1849 between a Howden team and a team from Reedness. At the bottom of the report is a mention of a possible match with the Goole Cricket club.
If anyone can add any more about the early history of the club I should be grateful.
It is very cold today and there was a fall of snow, the first of this winter, on Saturday night. Unfortunately it was, for me 'the wrong sort of snow' as it managed to worm its way through the slates on the front part of the house roof and collect in the loft. We only knew about it when it began to melt on Sunday morning.
