THE son of a cricketer who played the crucial role in Huddersfield's lowest- ever scoring cricket match wants to trace other players from the historic game.
The match between Huddersfield and Holmfirth took place at Fartown just over 60 years ago, on September 4, 1943.
Holmfirth were bowled out for just 30 runs and many spectators wandered off to watch a nearby rugby league match, wrongly thinking that victory for Huddersfield was assured.
But they did not reckon on the top form of Holmfirth pace bowler Arthur Noble.
He demolished the Huddersfield team - taking six wickets for just three runs - and the side were dismissed for six.
His son, William, was born three months after the match and grew up hearing the story of the game.
Now, Mr Noble is keen to trace anyone who played in the match.
Mr Noble, 59, of Shepley, said: "It would be wonderful to meet someone who played in that match.
"My father told me all about the game. When they were trying to get the final Huddersfield wicket, one of the young men who was fielding kept coming in too close.
"My father insisted he went right back before he bowled - then this player caught the shot with one hand and the game was over," said Mr Noble.
His father played cricket from the early 1920s and retired in the late 1940s.
He died 18 years ago, at the age of 82.
