Old Dalton CC scorebooks and Minute books. During our search for club records we have found many missing in the 1970's - 2000 so if you (e.g ex-captains) hold any such scorebooks or Minute books, or know someone who does, please return them to Dave Halsey - contact david(dot)halsey(at)tescol(dot)net
We can photocopy favourite matches for you, but at the end of the day they do belong to the Club and should be accessible for all to see.
