Bothwell gets cricket nets
IT may not be cricket season just yet, but the Bothwell Cricket Club has gotten a big boost for the coming 2017-18 season.
Dual cricket nets that have been in construction in the past couple of months have now been completed.
Funded by the Central Highlands Council, the nets were built at the Bothwell Recreation Ground just behind the new clubrooms which were also recently opened.
Central Highlands Mayor Loueen Triffitt officially opened the new nets on Sunday.
About 25 people attended the opening, which was followed with a barbecue lunch also attended by Central Highlands Councillor Richard Bowden.
The Bothwell Cricket Club will again be lead by president Joey Eyles.
The club will again field two teams in the Southern Cricket Association and has began training on Sundays.
If you would like to join the club, you can go to the Bothwell Bucks Cricket Club Facebook page or call Eyles on 0439 639 445.
