We are only five short weeks away from what promises to be another exciting cricket season. Preparations for the new season have been ongoing since our AGM in December and the next few weeks will see activity levels at our club rise again as we move towards mid-April. I would like to thank all those who have assisted thus far, in particular those who organised and partook in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.
Our aim as a club is to constantly improve on our on-pitch performances at all levels and provide the best opportunity for playing members of all ages and abilities to play and enjoy competitive and social cricket.
In order to do so we need ongoing support through fundraising and sponsorship. Fantastic sponsorship opportunities are available to both individuals and businesses looking to support the development of cricket resources at all levels of the club to ensure ongoing development and future success. We would encourage any member who has a potential sponsorship lead to speak to a committee member or to visit the sponsorship page on our website.
