As the weather threatens to bring us warm spring sunshine, so we are reminded that summer is on it’s way. With Cheltenham Festival over, the Six Nations done and dusted, FA Cup Semi-Finals on the way and winter sport seasons coming to a close, so cricket returns to the focus of attention.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) officially launched its All Stars Initiative on March 20th, which is designed to encourage young people to become involved in the game, and Ross Cricket Club is actively the centre for young cricketers in the local area.
There are hundreds of cricket clubs around the country preparing for their season’s campaigns, with ground preparation at the forefront of activities.
At Ross Cricket Club, this coming weekend, April 1st and 2nd, sees a weekend of ’NatWest Cricket Force’ activities down at the Park, near the Ross-on-Wye Sports Club.
The tasks are endless and all are welcome to help with tidying, cleaning, painting, carpentry, gardening, ground preparation – there can never be enough people. All help will be gratefully received and a NatWest Cricket Force 2017 T-shirt will be given to all of the volunteers.
This is also an opportunity, not only for the members, but for anyone to come down and engage with the club and explore the possibilities of membership as a player, a coach, official or purely as a social member.
Ross Cricket Club looks forward to extending a warm welcome to all.
