Keith Caveney, a legend

NatWest CricketForce 2013 is up and running already with lots of activity down at Crimble. Whilst the actual event itself is being held on Easter Sunday, March 31st, preparations are well underway as the club stages a smaller scale repeat of last year’s incredible event.

As part of the initiative this time around the club has already benefitted from the generosity of Kaberry Construction and their donation of the storage container which is now located next to the scorebox.

The preparation of the area for the container was coordinated by our newest life member, Keith Caveney in conjunction with Mike Hogg of Groundcare Ltd and various helpers.

Alan Burrill has become the latest sponsor to add his name to the success story at Crimble, the Under 15′s playing shirts for 2013 will carry the name of his mobile auto diagnostic business, A2B.

The groundstaff have already been hard at work preparing the ground for the season and the covers have been assembled with the friendly against Lancashire Under 19′s in mind on April 1st.

Pledges of help have already been received in relation to the refurbishment of the gents toilets and the ceiling in the foyer as well as many offers from willing workers eager to get painting, weeding, tidying and repairing on the day itself.

One big project for juniors to get involved in on the day will be the planting of over 100 trees donated by The Woodland Trust. At a time when sustainability and the environment are topical subjects the club are pleased to be able to put something back with the planting of these new trees.

The list of jobs is already online and anyone who wants to play a part this year, please get in touch, all those that were involved last year had a fantastic time and there was a great sense of club and community spirit.

Finally, it was a pleasure to see so many of our sponsors at the club last week at the sponsors evening. Club President Bob Cross closed the evening by thanking everyone for their support over the last 12 months and before, remarking that the recent support has transformed the club from one seeking to survive and maintain it’s standards to one of huge progress that he hasn’t seen in the 55 years that he has been connected with the club.
