Barnoldswick Cricket Club have announced the capture of John Beckwith from Gargrave Cricket Club, pending league approval.

Beckwith featured for his new side in a T20 friendly last season, where he hit an impressive 50 off as many balls.

Beckwith is regarded as a top order batting all rounder, who will bring experience and stability to Barnoldswick.

The talented batsman is part of the starting squad to face Steeton, in the club's first pre-season friendly of the campaign.

The game will take place on April 10 and will kick off at 1:00pm, however due to current restrictions, fans won't be able to attend.
