DRAKES League officials are keen to reveal their 2010 prizewinners after their October meeting – but some clubs are dragging their feet submitting averages.
Results secretary Yvonne Collins needs averages from teams in the Drakes Premiership, Frank Platt Championship and Cedar Court Conference as quickly as possible.
The League Executive can then determine the winners of the Reg Haigh Trophy – awarded to the most promising young cricketer – and the Jack Gledhill Trophy, for the leading all-rounder, as well as the Johnny Hunter awards which are for a First and Second XI cricketer who has produced an outstanding match-winning performance during the season.
Yorkshire are against staging a Winter Development Academy at Newsome High next month.

Only 20 places are available per Academy, and the cost is £135 for the course which runs over 10 weeks.
The course for 7 to12-year-olds starts on Friday, October 15 to December 17 (6pm to 7.30pm), while 12-16 year-olds start on Monday, October 18 to December 20 (6pm till 7.30pm).
