Celebrating title success

WITH the new cricket season just around the corner, we raided our archives to remember Alfreton Miners’ Welfare’s Bassetlaw League title winning success of 30 years ago, back in the 1981 season.

The club played on the beautifully picturesque Alfreton Park, the home of the current Alfreton Cricket Club who are looking to build on some very good results in the Derbyshire Premier Cricket League and a fantastic cup run in 2010.

The club have lost a few players due to career path changes and semi-retirement in the winter months but that gives their rising stars the chance to fill those places and show their ability to the local cricket world and the Premier League in particular.
