Cricket writers remember Yorkshire's Martin Searby
— 2 September 2013
The Cricket Writers’ Club have erected a plaque in the Press Box at Scarborough Cricket Club in memory of Yorkshire cricket journalist and broadcaster Martin Searby, who died in June 2011.
Martin was based in Scarborough when he began his coverage of Yorkshire cricket almost 35 years ago and his partner, Hilary Woodward, visited North Marine Road during the Championship match with Durham to view the plaque. She was also invited by Scarborough Cricket Club to lunch in the marquee, and was delighted when Yorkshire President Geoffrey Boycott chatted to her.
Pictured with Hilary are The Cricket Writers’ Club president and Yorkshire Yearbook Editor David Warner, left, and CWC chairman Pat Gibson.
