Premier Section Cricket Committee 

 
Mark Beardshall 
Head of Premier Section 
Mark was a founder member of the YSPL committee and served on the Yorkshire League committee before that. As the head of the Premier Section, he is responsible for Premier Section operations; reviewing its playing conditions as and when necessary; reporting to the LEB on Premier Section activities and issues; and for ensuring that LEB decisions are carried forward in the Premier Section. As a player, Mark was an opening bowler who was good enough to represent Derbyshire at first class level, and had a distinguished league career in both the Bradford and Yorkshire Leagues. A qualified coach and a longstanding member of the committee at Barnsley WMCC, Mark brings a wealth of experience and ideas to his role. 
 
Chris is a former member of the YSPL committee, bringing with him many years of experience of playing with Treeton both in the SYSCL and the YSPL. A top order batsman who is a former captain of the club, Chris continues to be a first team regular at Treeton.  
 
Mick Forrester 
Mick Forrester has served on the YSPL committee since 2017. He is the first team scorer and active committee member at Appleby Frodingham, becoming involved with the club when his sons started to play there. In addition to representing the interests of the two Lincolnshire clubs, Mick brings to the committee a common sense perspective from his background of club administration. 
 
Andy Harrison 
Andy has vast experience of South Yorkshire cricket, initially through his spells at Upper Haugh and Rotherham Town, and more recently through his 25-year involvement with the Wickersley club. After a very successful career as an opening bowler, he has continued to serve the club in a number of roles, including club chairman, and he remains head groundsman at Northfield Road. Andy played an important part in the negotiations leading to the formation of the YSPL, becoming a founder member of its committee, to which he has contributed enormously with his experience, knowledge and common sense. Andy was inducted into the YSPL Hall of Fame in 2017. 
 
Steve Ward 
Premier Section  
general manager 
Steve was formerly the secretary of the YSPL and before that he was chairman of the Yorkshire League. His two main areas of expertise are administration and scoring. For many years, Steve was secretary and scorer at Doncaster Town CC. Another tireless worker for the game, Steve is the ACO Regional Scorers Officer for the North, carrying out scorer training across the area, and is a respected voice on scoring issues. As Premier Section General Manager he is responsible for the day-to-day management of Section operations, including player registration, all scoring issues and matchday liaison with clubs; advice and support to clubs on attaining ECB club accreditation standards; organisation of Premier Section cup competitions.  
 
Alex Fletcher 
Alex joined the YSPL committee in 2018 and has been closely involved in organising end-of-season functions, as well as managing the league representative team. An experienced hard-hitting batsman and former captain of Whitley Hall, Alex played a significant role in the club's Jack Bland Trophy success last season.  
 
Chris Froggett 
League Compliance Manager 
A former founder member of the YSPL committee, Chris is chairman of Wakefield Thornes CC, where he has overseen the club's rise from the second tier of the Central Yorkshire League to White Rose Yorkshire Premier Leagues Champions on two occasions. Very knowledgeable in all aspects of the game, Chris is particularly experienced in the difficult area of overseas recruitment, and as compliance manager is responsible for ensuring that the Premier Section clubs are aware of and meet all relevant Premier League accreditation, grounds and playing criteria; approving the registration of all overseas players in the league, ensuring compliance with relevant rules; and for advice to clubs on overseas player issues. A keen golfer, Chris works for sports consultants Steve Wells Associates. 
Bryan was the general secretary of the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League before the merger. He is also on the Senior Section cricket committee and is on the committee of the South Yorkshire Cricket Umpires Association. As a cricketer, Bryan played for Yorkshire Main Colliery, from the age of 14, for 36 years before he retired from playing. Bryan's role on Premier Section cricket committee is to represent the interests of the Championship clubs, and to provide a link with the Senior Section cricket committee. Outside cricket, Bryan's main interest is football. He refereed for 30 years, and was a linesman on the Football League and Premier League for 15 years.
