Welcome to the website of the PDCL.

The League covers the traditional coalfield areas of West and South Yorkshire.  Many teams within the League have strong historic links with the coal industry and proudly bear the names of the collieries they served.

The League seeks to provide and foster grass-roots cricket within all communities and the Divisional structure enables teams to compete against other teams of similar playing standard.


Having taken into consideration the adverse weather of the last 6 weeks, together with the limited time that groundstaff have had/will have to work on their grounds, including all the necessary pre-season preparation and significant rolling, the League Management Committee have decided that the fixtures scheduled for Week 1 – April 21st will now be postponed.  ALL the fixtures scheduled for Saturday April 21st will now be played on Saturday September 22nd. 

To accommodate this the Division 6 fixtures already scheduled for September 22nd will be moved to an alternative date.  The 3 dates available are : Sunday July 22nd, Sunday August 26th or Monday August 27th.  Clubs involved should liaise with each other to select an appropriate date – the decision should be conveyed to the League Secretary by the end of May.

To help in coming to this decision the LMC have visited the majority of grounds over the last week or have had conversations with many others.  Some grounds might be ready for play, equally there are a large number where NO preparation has been possible yet.

It is important that ALL home teams contact the umpires scheduled for their match to advise them of the decision

This is a ‘one off’ decision due to the exceptional circumstances that we have faced in recent weeks and will not be repeated should further Saturdays be lost during the season.

Progressive Proflex 120 Rotary Mower


Progressive Turf Equipment's Pro-Flex 120 is fast becoming the benchmark for trail-type rotary contour finishing mowers.


The Pro-Flex 120 offers the same standards of quality, performance and reliability that are found on our Tri-Deck Series of mowers. In fact, the PTO shaft, running gear, blade spindle assembly and other drive train components are found on all models of Progressive mowers for added serviceability.


The Pro-Flex 120 abounds with features not found in competitive units. Some of the key features are:

·         A full frame which provides the ability to mow while backing up.

·         Adjustable discharge deflectors for clean even discharge of clippings.

·         High blade tip speed for a second to none after cut appearance.

·         Each deck is equipped with a shock absorber that keeps the deck from bouncing, thus providing a smooth even cut at speeds up to 6 mph. this increases productivity while maintaining quality of cut.



3.05m/10' Working Width

Transport Width 2.44m/8'

25-35HP Tractor Required

Height of Cut Range 25-83mm/1"-3.25"

These machines were mostly used at golf clubs like this one. However they would be ideal for airfields, school fields, cricket fields, rugby pitches and parks.


Price: £2750, to include a free four ball for purchasing club.
