Bowled Over at Norton Woodseats Cricket Club

Founded over 130 years ago, Norton Woodseats Cricket Club are a well-established club based in Graves Park. They run several teams: a first team, second team, mid-week senior levels, as well as a junior section.

The cricket club is at the heart of the local community and it is one that welcomes everyone. Recruiting members from underprivileged areas, passionate volunteers go into local primary schools to encourage children into cricket. Norton Woodseats Cricket Club is multi-cultural, multi-denominational and has first-class disabled facilities. It unites people from different backgrounds, classes, ages and nationalities and it does all this simply through playing sport.

 It is hard not to be bowled over by their achievements and their belief that what they are doing is worthwhile. They clearly want to make a difference to people’s lives.

However, recent drainage problems at Graves Park have resulted in the loss of 30% of all cricket games this summer season and an additional 60% of all training nights. It is clear that this cricket club “is thriving in every single aspect apart from the continuing problem of water logging” says Dave Colegate, President of the Cricket Club.

The funds from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme will go towards repairing the drainage problem, which is vital to the continuation of the cricket club.
