After many years with Hingham, Dale played his first game for Melton last season. He’s actually been involved with the club since 2012 when son Kyle became a junior player and he and wife Sallyann have often helped out with scoring for the U11s, U13s and U15s and, more recently at Cricketforce and the Junior Festival. With Kyle having graduated to senior cricket, Dale ended his injury-forced retirement to play with him in the Bs or Cs. He’s an extremely effective bowler as many of us who have played against Hingham will testify. Unerringly accurate and, with the ability to swing the ball, he is surprisingly pacy off such a short run and is both economical and a wicket-taker. As a lower order batsman he is also a good striker of a cricket ball. Last season in just 8 games for the Cs he took 13 wickets at just 2.56 and scored 114 runs.
