We are absolutely delighted to announce that our grant application to help fund new practice facilities has been successful and that Viridor Credits have awarded us an amazing £25,000 !

The club would like to place on record our thanks to Viridor Credits, not just for the financial award, but also for their fantastic help and guidance throughout the application process.

We have identified our preferred contractor and Bancroft Amenities will begin work soon to ensure that the new facilities are up and running by the end of March, in plenty of time for the new season.

The work includes a completely new, enclosed 2 lane net on the site of the existing practice area and a new synthetic ‘match’ pitch on the square, on the site of the existing ‘all weather’ pitch.

As well as the grant from Viridor Credits, we are indebted to our brilliant main club sponsor DUO Plastics who have contributed to the project too.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work of a few club volunteers, or the letters of support from the local school community and Lancashire Cricket Federation. Thank you to all concerned.

We will post updates as the work get’s underway.
