1st XI Transfer News

The 1st XI have boosted their squad with the capture of 2 fine cricketers ahead of the new season.

Former Esholt man Dave Hester rejoins the club after a number of seasons with Pudsey St. Lawrence and more recently Otley where he got into the habit of winning trophies.

Dave is a high quality batter who's scored consistent runs in the A Division of the Aire Wharfe over the last 6 seasons, has a great pair of hands in the field and we're looking forward to seeing some heat with the ball in winter nets!

Dave takes over as 1st XI vice-captain for 2020 and we' can't wait to see what he can do in TPE colours.

We are delighted to bring another consistent run-scorer to the club in the shape of Imran Patel from New Rover. Imran is an experienced cricketer following a number of years in Bradford League cricket before a move to New Rover where he's impressed with big runs.

562 runs last term, impressing our 1st team scouts along the way. Imran also gives us another bowling option with some useful medium pace.

2 fantastic signings, providing us with a powerful looking middle order and addressing an area where we fell a little short in 2019.

Welcome to Dave and Imran, we are looking forward to seeing you both in action.
