Willoughby CC does ECB Natwest Cricketforce 2019 – Saturday 6th April

By Karl Quinney

Not long now until our annual pre-season 'spring clean' morning

A reminder to everyone of our annual ECB Natwest Cricketforce ‘clean –up’ morning which is coming up soon.

It will take place on the morning of Saturday 6th April, at Willoughby CC, from 9.30am to 1.00pm

NatWest CricketForce is a nationwide initiative run by the ECB, designed to bring clubs and local communities closer together, and ensure grounds and facilities are ready for the new season.

We have been involved in #NWCF annually now for over 15 years and it is always a great and well-supported occasion to bring all sections of the club together ahead of the new season.

Saturday 1st XI Captain Ben Hollis is leading the task list this year with a variety of jobs lined up both inside the pavilion and outside on and around the ground; in particular a focus will be dedicated to the installation of new netting for our revamped outdoor net area.

So here is where you come in.

Over the years we have received tremendous support from all sections of the club for our Cricketforce Day, and we hope we can rely on the same from you for this year.

Therefore to get the club ready for the start to the season we are asking players – young and old, club members and officials, and parents to come along to lend a hand from 9.30am on Saturday 6th April.

What to bring:-

  • Yourselves (first and foremost, it goes without saying ;-)
  • A teammate, friend or friends
  • A spade or a rake
  • A wheelbarrow (if you can fit one in your vehicle)
  • Old clothes to wear
  • Wellington Boots (if you have any)
  • and perhaps a paint brush or two.

There will be plenty of tea (with kind thanks to Yorkshire Tea for their donation), coffee and soft drinks available to everyone, and our now-traditional BBQ breakfast.

Plus the local Press will be once again visiting to get a series of photos.

It just now needs you to come along and offer your support and a hand; even if it is just for an hour.

If you have any questions, drop us a line via email here

We will have updates on Facebook and Twitter in the lead-up to the day.

We look forward to your support and seeing you on the morning of Saturday 6th April
