Cricket Club Prepares to Open Its 2007 Innings
Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club has been
busy preparing for the new season with indoor nets at Easton College.
The final sessions will be on 11th and 25th March
from 8 until 9 p.m.
The ambitious club, which has its own ground at
Taswood Lakes at Flordon, will again be running three Saturday teams in
Divisions Two, Seven and Ten of the Norfolk League. They will also have
a Sunday team in Division Two of the Norfolk League and will be
competing in the Challenge Cup, the Wensum Cup and Wicklewood Shield in
addition to midweek and evening friendlies.
The club will also be running youth teams at
Under-11 and Under-15 level with the former playing in the Norfolk
Alliance Junior League and the latter in the South Norfolk Community
“Having secured promotion three years out of
four, the club now has its sights firmly set on rising to the Norfolk
Alliance. We boast superb facilities including two pitches, a purpose
built pavilion with bar, showers and full coaching facilities.
“We are particularly keen to attract new players
looking for a fresh challenge whether they are experienced player
disenchanted with their present club or its lack of ambition or juniors
and parents looking for a game,” said club secretary Richard Ellis.
A pre-season working party will be sprucing the
Flordon ground and clubhouse up on 7th April and the club’s
first inter-club practice match will be on 14th April.
The club will also be holding a May Bank Holiday
tour of Nottinghamshire with three games in the local area.
