This week #ThrowbackThursday follows up on pictures we published last week of teams from Bilton cricket club in the 1960s.

Martin wrote: “If you have not been inundated with info of the unnamed players in the Harrogate Junior League XI 1961/2, perhaps I can be of help as I played in both.”

Last week the ‘Advertiser featured players from the past at Bilton Cricket Club when former team captain Charlie Dodsworth and his wife Christine kindly sent a number of photos of teams from the 1960s.

The Bilton-born Dodsworths spoke about their time at the club where they met and grew up together.
