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.
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our friend and colleague Bob Dutton has passed away after a short illness. Bob was a great servant to our League and indeed to local sport in general - he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kath and his family at this sad time.
Please do not telephone the family home at this time
