GEOFF BOYCOTT has failed to gain a place on the reduced Yorkshire County Cricket Club committee for this year. The former England batsman, who has been commentating in India on the England tour, finished fourth in the West district, with only the leading three being elected. But Boycott gained some consolation when, along with Ray Illingworth, he was elected an honorary life member at Yorkshire's annual meeting in Leeds yesterday.
