5 New homepage photos

Updated: Jul 30

Another batch of Vets League history with five new photographs to share with you on our rotating homepage feature.


This week we have, in rotation order ....

  1. Holmfirth B.C. in 1898 when the pavilion was first opened. Amazingly all the names of the people on the photo have been recorded and retained for all this time. Thank you to Gill Farnsworth for the photo. Another photo of the Holmfirth pavilion from Gill next week.

  2. The elevated green at Slaithwaite Cricket & Bowling Club.

  3. Greenhead Park in 1927 when the nine tennis courts and two bowling greens were first added to the complex. Note the number of spectators around the bowling greens. A photo of the Greenhead Park clubhouse taken in 1949 is on the list for next week's homepage refresh. Thanks to Des Emsall for uncovering these photos from the Huddersfield Exposed website.

  4. Cowcliffe Veteran's team in 2002 the Section 4 Champions. Back Row; (Left to right) Les Owen, David Bentley, Ralph Simpson, Philip Riding, John Peckover and Ron Sutcliffe. Front Row: Bob Swan, Jeff Jones, Peter Slacke and Frank Sykes. Two team members missing from the photo were Stan Broadbent and Eddie Meredith. Photo taken by Steve Stoney April 2003 and provided by Bob Swan.

  5. The Newsome team that went down to Lockwood Con in the 2015 Team KO Final.
