CRICKET: Willoughby


All hands on deck for Cricketforce on Saturday!

It will be all hands on deck this Saturday morning as Willoughby Cricket Club gets set for the new season with their annual Natwest Cricketforce event.

Young and old will converge on The Green as the club undertakes a proverbial spring clean of the Pavilion and a variety of smaller works and outdoor projects in and around the ground.

WCC is one of over 2000 clubs around the country who will be taking part in the now-annual England and Wales Cricket Board initiative over this coming weekend.

Natwest Cricketforce is a scheme which is designed for cricket clubs to encourage members of the club and their local community to get together to get the ground and facilities ready for the new season. Having been involved with the programme since it first started 13 years ago, Willoughby was awarded the Warwickshire Cricket Board’s Natwest Cricketforce Club of the Year for 2013.

With the new season a matter of a weeks away, the club is also using Saturday as a Registration Morning for both adult and junior cricketers interested in playing at the club for the coming summer.

For further details, contact Karl on 07775 883102 or email, or come along on Saturday to see the ground for yourself and meet the club members and officials.
