Name: David Smith.
Occupation: I am a retired Health Safety adviser and lifelong cricket fan, principally Yorkshire CCC.
About David: I am a member of YCCC along with my wife Margaret and daughter Julie, and I am a Yorkie volunteer. I became a Yorkie to help the club through providing a friendly face-I think so(!)-and help and advice to visitors to Headingley for cricket matches.
Sum up the Yorkie experience in three words: Rewarding , fulfilling, exciting.
