It is with great regret that I have to report that Steve Raistrick, the League Chairman, died on Saturday evening.

Steve joined the League Committee in 1995 when he took on the position of Results and Fixture Secretary from Paul Dews. He continued in that role until the 2007 AGM when he passed those duties to Steve Bradbury and took over as Chairman from David Smith for the 2008 season. He was also on the supplementary panel of Umpires for most of this time.


He was an affable and cheerful presence at many functions whether being MC at the

League Presentation Evening or representing the League at Inter-League Cup fixtures or at Area Council meetings, and he helped to complete the process of making Pudsey Congs our unofficial Headquarters.


He will be sorely missed by all in the Dales Council and will be a hard act to follow.


Details of the funeral will follow when available.
