Cricketers and Rotarians joined forces to raise more than £1,000 for Castleford Cricket Club.

The sports club and Pontefract Rotary Club held a race night to raise £1,054 to pay for a new electronic scoreboard.

The event was organised in memory of Ernest Holstead, a former Pontefract Rotary Club member, who also helped at the cricket club.

The money was handed over at the club’s annual presentation night, where awards were presented by former Castleford CC member David Wainwright, who now plays for Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
