Skipper steps down

SCARBOROUGH Cricket Club 1st XI captain Tony Moor announced this week 25 years ago that he would be stepping down at the end of the coming season.

He had played for the club for 27 seasons, becoming captain in December 1972 – succeeding Geoff Dennis.

He led Scarborough to the Yorkshire League title in 1973, '76 and '78, and he also skippered the club's sides which won the Haig Trophy in '76 and '79 and which won the Yorkshire League Knock-Out Competition in 1983.

* And young all-rounder Nick Tubbs announced he would not be available for selection by the club in the coming season because he would be reading law at university.
