OUR thanks go to Mick Buckley from Marehay Cricket Club who has provided all the names for a team picture which we published on August 11.

The picture shows a jubilant Marehay Cricket Club first XI at the end of a very successful 1981 season which saw them crowned Derbyshire County Cricket League division three champions.

Marehay won the title by just six points having accrued 292 points compared to runners-up Scarsdale’s 286 despite both clubs finishing with an identical playing record of 11 wins, seven draws and four defeats over the season.
