Best wishes from Dalton CC to all grass-roots cricketers for a good 2018 - good weather and a good cricket season i.e. an even contest between bat and ball, played with respect for all players, officials, spectators and most importantly the game of cricket , but without the nasty, derogatory and disrespectful comments read, seen and heard in other levels of the game.

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.
