SHEPLEY bid to reach their second final in eight days when they tackle Central Yorkshire League side Townville in the semi-finals of the Heavy Woollen Cup at Marsh Lane tomorrow (1pm).
Last week Shepley defeated Elland by seven wickets to reach the final of the Romida Sykes Cup for the second successive season – they are the current holders after beating Skelmanthorpe in last year’s final – and Danny Glover’s side will be hell bent on getting to the final of the HW Cup, of which they are also the holders.
Shepley defeated Gomersal in last year’s final to win the Trophy for the first time, and they repeated that victory in the first round of this year’s competition before beating Skelmanthorpe in the second round and registering a quarter-final win over Spen Victoria.
Townville, led by former County man Tim Walton and including England Test star Tim Bresnan’s brother Richard, have defeated Kirkheaton, Liversedge and Methley.
Shepley’s captain Danny Glover and his team are again running their summer camp at Marsh Lane during the school holidays.
It proved very popular last year with youngsters getting the chance to participate in all sorts of sporting activities, as well as cricket.
‘Danny’s Bootcamp’ starts on Tuesday, July 24, and runs for six weeks (there is no camp the week commencing August 6), and will be staged three days each week, Tuesdays to Thursdays from 9am until 4pm each day.
Boys and girls between the ages of eight and 13 are welcome, and the cost is £12 per day, or £32 for the full three days.
Anyone interested in joining Danny and his team of helpers, should contact Danny Glover (email@example.com), Beth Rae (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sue Glover (email@example.com)
