Clayton's 1st XI's crucial last game of the season & Howard's last game of his career.
After a long and illustrious playing career with (mainly) Clayton CC, 1st XI captain, Howard Stead has finally decided to call it a day.
The final game of the season, away at Southowram, was a bit of a cliffhanger with both teams fighting to avoid relegation.
Howard was determined to go out on a high and that's exactly what he did, scoring 83 runs before being caught out, and playing the pivotal role in ensuring Clayton won the day and avoided the drop.
In the thick of the action, as always!
So that'll be another 4, then!
The last ball of a very long career!
No looking back, eh?
