The Grey Fox Trophy is supported by
Yorkshire Building Society - A great Match
‘Runs on the Board’ – an artists’ celebration of amateur cricket in Yorkshire – was conceived by Graham Roberts and commissioned by imove, as a project for Yorkshire’s Cultural Olympiad 2012.
The Grey Fox Trophy, the limited overs knock-out competition for over 50s sides, is an integral element, providing a focus for the artists’ attention.
In 2011 Runs on the Board commissioned photographer Anton Want and poet Andrew McMillan to produce a body of new work celebrating the character of over 50s cricket and the characters mad enough to still haul their creaking, brittle, bones out onto the pitch.
In 2013 four artists: Lucy Carolan, Steve Toase, Nick Ahad and Jonny Walton have been commissioned to add new work to the Runs on the Board collection.
