================================================

Looking back at our proud history :--

" Whatever the opinion held by East and West Hull readers, I personally always look upon the Newland district as the headquarters of local cricket ................ Anlaby Road may hold the monopoly of class cricket ..... Beverley Road still holds pride of place as regards local cricket ..... I felt a pang of regret to see the bricks and mortar which covers the old Haworth Arms ground  where Hull Zingari, Christ Church, St Paul's, Civil Services , Askwiths etc used to disport themselves."

An extract from an article AN AFTERNOON AT NEWLAND by "The Major" which appeared in the Hull Daily Mail on Monday 28th May 1906.
