A few years ago everything seemed rosy for Moorfield Cricket Club.
Promotion to the Bridging Finance Solutions Liverpool Competition in 2009, was a fine reward for a club which prided itself on recruiting the majority of its players from the near their base on the eastern side of Widnes.
Tireless cricket chairman, Mike Drane had a knack for securing funding and despite suffering from unexpected renal failure in 2008, he played a major part in Moorfield becoming one of the first clubs in the north west to achieve Clubmark accreditation from the England Cricket Board.
It was a shock then to read a recent statement on the LDCC's website which confirmed that Moorfield, who had been rooted to the bottom of Division Two, were to resign from the league "with immediate effect".
Drane, who resigned from his post in April, "due to a conflict of interest with the club's management," was unequivocal in what was to blame for the club's demise.
