By Guy Williams.

As befits an optician, David Moorhouse, 90 not out in October, has seen and watched a lot of cricket – not surprisingly given that he’s Yorkshire’s longest serving member having joined as a junior almost 75 years ago.

Now living in Wetherby, David, who played club cricket in Leeds, was born in 1929 when the great Wilfred Rhodes was still playing for the county and England were captained by Percy Chapman.

He joined as a junior member in October 1945 after the war and watched his first game as a member during the 1946 season once Championship cricket resumed, and has been a keen member ever since.
