Stapleton sets up extra team
STAPLETON Cricket Club is now running four adult men's sides each week, alongside its women's and junior teams.
The club started its pre-season games with an inter-club match and is inviting people to get in touch or pop down to its ground at the Hollow, off Park Road.
Chairman Andy Chidgey said there would be cricket on Saturdays and most evenings during the season, adding: "Membership and fixtures right across the club are at all time highs and the club is booming."
The new fourth men's team "provides opportunity for cricketers of all standards and chances for our junior players, as they make their way into adult cricket," said Andy.
The club's women's section, founded last year under Charlie Dorman, and the junior section led by Ian Crawford, who was recently awarded the British Empire Medal for his services to cricket and the community, are also welcoming new recruits, from ages five and over.
Andy said: "As you can see, things are blossoming at SCC and we're looking forward to a tremendously exciting season and we would love you to share it with us. We hope to see you in the near future and look forward to giving you a warm welcome at The Hollow."
