Cricket: Your chance to meet Andrew Gale

East Riding Cricket Society’s special guest on Wednesday February 14th will be Yorkshire’s youngest-ever professional captain and current First XI coach, Andrew Gale (pictured celebrating, right). This meeting was temporarily in doubt due to a late change in Yorkshire’s pre-season plans, but these have changed again and Andrew is now free. 

Aged just 26 when appointed skipper in December 2009, the Dewsbury-born batsman led the club to Championship triumphs in 2014 and 2015, before retiring after a 14-year playing career to follow Jason Gillespie as First XI coach.

An aggressive left-hander, with 20 first-class hundreds to his name, Andew debuted in league cricket as an eight-year-old with Gomersal before continuing his development with the Yorkshire Academy. He played international age-group cricket from under-15 to under-19 level, including appearances at the MCG and SCG, and also skippered England Lions to t20 victory over a full England side in 2010.

The society meets in the Brewery Bar, at the King William IV in Hallgate, Cottin glam, starting at 7.45pm. Non-members are welcome (£5). 2017/18 memberships still available at a reduced price, giving two top speakers (Andrew Gale & Farokh Engineer on March 14th) plus free Emerald Headingley 2018 East Stand and Long Room access.
