The game was played in memory of former Copley wicketkeeper and junior coach Steve ‘Chickpea’ Priestley, who was looked after at the hospice in 2015.

Copley would like to thank the Barmy Army team and all those who came to support the game, donated raffle prizes, including Yorkshire CCC and the Barmy Army, and bought raffle tickets.
