The party included visitors from Adelaide, Bournemouth and Harlow as well as several individuals attending their first Test. All soon learned the part the element of patience played in the armoury of a cricket watcher. The cricket that was played was disappointingly one-sided but the skills of man of the match Johnny Bairstow, with a century and 9 catches and Jimmy Anderson were clear to see. Mark Arthur, Yorkshire's Chief Executive told the press later that playing Tests early in the season in the north was always a gamble and asked 'why not July for Headingley?'

After 2 Rotary Days Out at the Test Match in very different climatic conditions many of us would agree. Seating positions were much better this year and in the views of many enjoyably close to both shelter, food and the bar!
