Walter & Kyle Depart For Pastures New

21 Feb 2020

Long-serving bowler Walter Kasim has departed the club after a highly successful six year spell. He moves to take up a fresh challenge at Denton in the Greater Manchester Cricket League. 2nd teamer, Kyle Clayton has also opted for a change in scenery moving to nearby Micklehurst.

As a crucial part of the the fondly remembered treble-winning side of 2016, Walter forged a formidable partnership with fellow opener Shakir Muhammad during that incredible campaign where they took 118 wickets between them. Walter took a total of 256 wickets over his six years since a move from Elland ahead of the 2015 season. Handy with the bat too, he scored four half-centuries with several match-winning contributions.

During his time with us he helped win two Sykes Cups, a Byrom Shield and two T20 Trophies. He took vital wickets in both Sykes Cup finals enabling us to take control in both matches.

Kyle Clayton has been part of a fantastic resurgence with our second team since joining in 2017. He gave a valuable contribution during our promotion season from the Championship Two in 2018 where he scored 389 runs. Last season he played a large proportion of our matches scoring 342 runs as we finished in a very pleasing third place in Premiership Two. At Micklehurst he will join another former player in Jonny Forrester who now captains the 1XI.

Delph & Dobcross cricket club would like to thank both Walter and Kyle for their service and wish them both well with Denton CC and Micklehurst CC respectively.
