For the first time this year the club will be running a third team on a Saturday. This is exciting news for the growth of the club and will enable more playing opportunities and progress for our youngsters into adult cricket too. Along with the Saturday and Sunday sides the club has also entered two T20 leagues, which will also involve our older Colts, so it’s going to be a busy cricketing season!
The club changing rooms are currently undergoing a refurbishment and we met with members of the County team and the ECB to talk about possibilities of applying for a grant to help us create “Welcoming Spaces”. We will keep you posted on how this progresses.
The end of season working party worked hard to get the club ready for winter by tidying away sight screens, making repairs, cleaning windows, moving gravel and generally tidying up for the winter.
The club has also taken part in the indoor cricket league pilot at Northern Gateway and the general consensus is what a fantastic facility it is. Indoor cricket is fast and furious - balls bouncing off walls, ceilings and having to run like Usain Bolt between the stumps. Well done to our Indoor Team!
