Yorkshire Cricket is regarded as one of the greatest clubs in the world, and as one of the proudest in existence. Established over 150 years ago, the history, tradition and passion of its Members are the main reasons for this. The pride of the Club’s supporters has always been evident.

To celebrate the Club’s fantastic supporters, we bring you a feature looking at memories of some of the White Rose Members. This week we hear from Philip and Kathryn from Whitby.

When did you first become a member of Yorkshire County Cricket Club?

Philip: “I’ve been a keen supporter of Yorkshire Cricket since the 1950s but only became a Full Member around the millennium when I had more time to watch county cricket. In 2011, I became a debenture holder. Then in 2018, myself and Kathryn became members of the 1863 Club.”

Kathryn: “I became an avid follower of Yorkshire cricket when I first met Philip in 2011.”

What are your first memories of Yorkshire County Cricket Club?

Philip: “My first memories of Yorkshire cricket were in the late 1940s when I visited Headingley, Sheffield and Chesterfield to watch county cricket.”

Kathryn: “My first memory was the rained-off fixture against Essex at Headingley in 2011 when I first met Ajmal Shahzad. He soon became my first subject for a portrait of a county cricketer (Kathryn is a professional artist).”
