Keith Moss MBE has announced he is standing down as chairman of the JCT600 Bradford League following recent ill health.

It will bring down the curtain on 65 years of dedicated service in cricket administration, at club, league and county level. A journey that started in January 1950 when, as a schoolboy, he was appointed secretary of his village club.

Happily he will continue to be the league’s president and figurehead. Moss, 80,  took on the role of chairman three years ago after the resignation of Graham Reid.

His outstanding service to cricket was recognised in 2010 when he was made an MBE. He won the coveted Sir Leonard Hutton Trophy in 1999 for his outstanding service to the Bradford League and took the Stuart Hodgson Award for services to boards and leagues in last year’s Yorkshire Cricket Board OSCAS.

His long-time club Pudsey St Lawrence, where he has held a variety of positions for 40 years, Yorkshire where he served for 20 years as finance chairman and then chairman, and the Bradford League have all benefited from his wise counsel.

In 2005 he led the reforms which brought into being the Management Board, and he was a firm advocate of the bonus point system which was introduced in 2006.

The Management Board have appointed David Young as the new chairman. He will retain the dual role of treasurer but he will relinquish the position of chief executive.

Development Officer Alan Birkinshaw has had his role expanded and will take responsibility for all cricketing matters. Administration Executive Bob Shackleton and secretary Steve Raistrick have also been given additional administration tasks.

Young said: “We are indebted to Keith for all the years of dedicated service he has put in. We are delighted that now he is recuperating after his recent illness that he wants to continue his role as president.

“Keith is a great ambassador for the Bradford League and we all owe him a debt of gratitude for the work he has done.
He will still be attending our cup finals and annual dinner and I am sure he will be keeping a close eye on all matters Bradford League.”
