HOT NEWS

Firstly we start with very exciting news of our inbound Overseas player joining us for the 2014 season. This is an exciting step for our club following on from the positive experience we had with Harrison last summer. This year we will be welcoming Matt Worsnop who will be arriving in April coming out of Melbourne, Victoria in Australia.

We look forward to welcoming him into the Club.

NEW VERANDA

In preparation for the season and finishing our Club obligations for last year will be the erecting new Clubhouse veranda which will  include a ramp to improve access.

We’re hoping it will be a nice area to watch the cricket on a hot and sunny day.

The preparation for this will start this Sunday and the fitting will happen on the weekends of the 29th March and the 5th April.

We will need volunteers for this. All helping hands will be welcome!
