Bob Richardson has given his kind permission to place his new book on the website. Bob has researched a family member, Allan Siddall, who lived at Nottingham Farm, Barmby Moor. He was a professional cricketer (as well as a farmer) from c.1885 - 1900, and he played for many teams in the area, including Pocklington.
