The Pre -Season indoor run has now finished and we are ready to go outside.
Lots of activity over the winter with training up coaches keeping the indoor programme up to date but we are now ready to get things under way outside.
So . . . The Season is really close now. County friendlies are underway and it’s time to spruce up our ground ready for a bumper season of Cricket 🙂
Things kick off this weekend with our Nat West Cricket Force project. This is a national event where players, friends and family gather at their clubs to get ready for the Season.

There will be painting, tidying sweeping – a bit of digging if you are so inclined but there will certainly be bacon butties and a cup of tea for the workers.
