Dacre Banks Cricket Club
Annual Dinner
The Annual Dinner of this club was held in the Royal Oak Dacre Banks on Saturday evening last (9/11). The club has for many many years occupied a most prominent position in local cricket. It's history goes back probably further than that of any other local cricket clubs and although like similar organisations it has had it's ups and downs it has still always turned out an eleven worthy of the traditions of the club. The Annual Dinner is always looked forward to with a great  amount of interest and friends of the club from far and near generally manage to be present on this festive occasion. The club is especially fortunate in it's friends seeing that most if not all the meats and game etc. is given by them. That being so it is only necessary that the gifts should be well cooked and served and in this respect the efforts of the donors were ably seconded by the host and hostess Mr & Mrs Atkinson, and a splendid dinner was the result. A dinner not often seen in connection with the annual reunion of a village club.
After the cloth had been drawn Mr A D Robinson was voted to the chair and Mr C Atkinson, Vice-Chair. It should be stated that the President of the club Mr P Wilkinson was unavoidably absent but during the evening sympathetic references were made to him and the interest he has always taken in the club. On taking the chair Mr Robinson said that he felt highly honoured on being voted to the chair. He was very pleased to do what he could to help the Dacre Banks Cricket Club and he hoped they would have a good time and add one more night to the many pleasant evenings held in connection with the club.
The first toast was the King & Royal Family and was duly given. Mr Boud (Hon Secretary) next gave a brief account of the years work. They had had a very successful season from a playing point of view.  The club had played 20 matches. Of these 11 were won, 8 drawn 1 lost (Applause). They had scored 2061 runs for 230 wickets giving an average of 14.9 per wicket. Whilst there opponents had scored 1427 runs for 179 wickets. An average of 7.9 per wicket. The chief batting: T Gill 41.5, F Robinson 25.5, W Ellis 22.6, C L Gill 14.9, J Settle 14.2, W Houseman 13.0. In bowling W Ellis had taken 75 wickets at 5.9, G Atkinson 32 at a cost of 8.5, R Calvert 20 at 8.6.
The 2nd XI had played 15 matches. 10 were drawn, 3 lost and 2 were drawn.
For next season matches had been arranged for Starbeck, Pateley Bridge, Pannal, Glasshouses & Burley.
Two seasons ago Glasshouses and Dacre played Pateley Bridge and last season Glasshouses & Pateley Bridge had played Dacre. Next year it has been arranged that Dacre Banks & Pateley Bridge should play Glasshouses on September 13th. The Hon Treasurer had asked him to state that the accounts were not quite ready, but would be presented at the annual general meeting which will be held on Monday 24th inst.
The Chairman said Mr Boud had presented an interesting and creditable report. He was pleased that they had had such a successful season. Mr J Pullan (meat) proposed the Officers and the Committee. He said it was a matter of great satisfaction to propose a toast after the excellent dinner they had enjoyed. He was sorry that their President was not present but he felt sure he was with them in spirit. It was a satisfaction however to see their Captain who had piloted the club to a successful season. He asked them to drink a toast. Mr J Settle (Capt) responded. As their captain he had made a point of attending their practices and his remarks had always been kindly received. Every Member of the XI had worked with only one aim and hat aim was the success of the club and it was only by working in that manner that success in cricket could be obtained. Mr Boud (Hon Sec) also responded and thanked them for the hearty way the toast had been honoured. Mr Boud next gave the donors. He wished all the donors had been present at the excellent meal past they had enjoyed that evening. He had been to many of the dinners of the club in an official and unofficial capacity and he thought that their dinner that night was the most successful held. Mr Short responded he always derived a great amount of pleasure coming to Dacre Banks especially to watch a cricket match. Members of the club were to be congratulated on possessing such an excellent cricket field surrounded by natural beauty, which was rarely seen. It was always a pleasure to him to sit in the field and enjoy both the cricket and the surroundings. He saw the Glasshouses match which was "derby day", a sort of Holbeck Hunslet match (laughter) and he never forgot the three brilliant catches taken that day by Tom Gill. Catches that were worthy of Tunnicliffe and worth going a long way to see. It was in villages that like Dacre banks that cricketers were made and he instanced Sutton in Ashfield where so many famous Notts. cricketers had learnt their cricket. He thought there was plenty of talent in their club, which only wanted bringing out. It was the first time he had been at their annual dinner and he hoped it would not be the last. (Applause).
The visitors was proposed by the Vice Chairman and Mr Mell of Bradford responded. Absent Friends was proposed by the Chairman and vote of sympathy was passed and the Secretary was asked to forward the same to the widow of the late W Barber of Otley. Other toasts were:- The Host & Hostess by Mr Wormald; and the Chairman by Mr Boud. Toasts were interspersed with songs by Messrs Wormald, Dacre, Pullan, Shaw, Fisher, J Smith, A Robinson, W Boud. The singing of the
National Anthem closed a most successful and enjoyable evening.

3 May
Hampsthwaite bowled out for 9 v  Alexandra Park
W R Heaton 3, A Bowman 5 & W Houseman 1. The rest were ducks.

B Dunnington 55 for Pannal v Pateley Bridge
Alexandra Park CC must be particularly strong in bowling if their match with Hampsthwaite is an indication of their true strength. The Hampsthwaite batsmen collectively reached 9 runs, the bowling of V T & G F Atkinson doing great honour.
Vincent Atkinson had 5 for 8 and performed the hat-trick, whilst his brother took 5 wickets for 1 run and headed the score with 19 runs

Pannal entertained the Pateley Bridge XI on Saturday and a really good game resulted in a draw.  The homesters commenced in an inauspicious fashion. Brookes and Hudson both failing to scare; but Dunnington and Fisher becoming associated the fun raged fast and furious and the former had reached 55 and the latter 21 before they were disposed of. The innings was declared with a total of 101-5 wkts. Pateley Bridge responded with 48-4 Webb 19* and Pitt 11 being the chief run getters.
