With the cricket season fast approaching, it's also time for the Club Lottery to resume.

As before select 7 numbers from 1 to 49.

The first one to get all 7 numbers will win the pot.  Only Saturday numbers to count.

The game will roll over week by week until someone gets the required 7 numbers.

The cost is £1.00 per week.

The profit from the lottery goes to Club activities such as the great Firework display in November.

Don't delay, give your numbers to Wendy ASAP.

Dennis award 03Following his prestigious award for Outstanding Service to Sport, Mike Berriman, from Yorkshire Voice, interviewed Dennis at the Club and submitted the following report:-

"The tireless efforts of a chairman of a local cricket club have been celebrated by the Leeds Sports Awards.
Dennis Nicholson, 66, Southleigh Road, Beeston, was presented with the award for Outstanding Service to Sport in a ceremony at New Dock Hall, Clarence Dock on Thursday night.

Dennis, who has two children and eight grandchildren, has been involved with East Leeds Cricket Club for more than 40 years: "I started off organising the weekly quiz and then 6 years ago I was made Chairman because I was the only person prepared to unblock the ladies'  toilet.
"I sort out the entertainment for charity events, discos and I also carry out general repairs around the club. It is a team effort. We rely on volunteers"

The hard working chairman is currently leading a drive to bring more youngsters to the club on Pontefract Road.

He added "The junior side of the club is very important to us. We are hoping to get a youth team together this year and we will be running a cricket camp over the Easter holidays.
"We are also providing evening coaching sessions at Victoria, St Patrick's and Ebor Primary Schools. We are a family club. We have a children's play area and in the summer we have bouncy castles. The whole club is fenced off so it is a safe place for children to play"

James Watling, 32, first team captain at the club in Cross Green, nominated Dennis for the award: "Dennis is brilliant, without Dennis we wouldn't have a club."
James has been at the club 21 years and he has seen at first-hand the invaluable work of his chairman: "He never asks for thanks, he just gets on with it.
"He is constantly putting on free events for the local community. If there is an event starting at 8 o'clock, he will be there at 6 and won't leave until everyone has left"

Dennis Award 02
At the Leeds Sports Awards, with an attendance of 675 people, none cheered louder than the East Leeds attendees when our charismatic chairman, Dennis, was presented with the trophy for "OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO SPORT".

The citation read:-

"Now in his sixth consecutive year as chairman of the East Leeds Cricket Club (ELCC) Dennis Nicholson has overseen many positive changes. He is always the first to put his hand up to help and counts painting, tiling, fetching and carrying among the many unpaid tasks he regularly undertakes. Junior cricket is back thanks to him and the club has an award winning website. "DJ Den" and his many disco, race and other fundraising nights are infamous and his tireless work for ELCC has never earned him a penny."

Well done Dennis, a thoroughly deserved award, congratulaions from all at East Leeds.
