The funeral service of former Yorkshire batsman and club coach, Doug Padgett, will take place at All Saints Church, Bingley, on February 19 at 2pm.

Doug, who helped Yorkshire win seven Championship titles and two Gillette Cup finals between 1959-1969, died on January 20, aged 89, in a nursing home in Steeton.

A long-time resident of Micklethwaite, Doug made his breakthrough playing Bradford League cricket for Idle, before debuting for Yorkshire at the age of just 16 years and 321 days.

A technically correct batsman, Doug scored 20,306 first-class runs for the White Rose, including 29 centuries, while he also appeared for England in two Test matches against South Africa in 1960.

After retiring from first-class cricket in 1971, Doug played for Bowling Old Lane as well as North-East side Marske.

In the 1970s, Doug also captained Yorkshire’s second XI, before becoming assistant coach and then head coach.

He was also responsible for the Yorkshire Academy team playing league cricket and for encouraging academy boys to test themselves in the furnace of Bradford League cricket.
