Do­na­tion has club cov­ered

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

STOKE Gold­ing Cricket Club has been gifted a set of anti-van­dal rain cov­ers.

The cov­ers for the cricket square, which will help main­tain pitches in good con­di­tion for matches, were do­nated by the Char­ity of Thomas Bar­ton.

The club said it was “over­whelmed” that the char­ity had of­fered to pay for the cov­ers which are al­ready al­low­ing for bet­ter pitches to be pre­pared and games to be played that might pre­vi­ously have been rained off.

With the club’s 1st team play­ing at its high­est level ever, the cov­ers are more im­por­tant than ever, while the 2nd team is push­ing for pro­mo­tion this year.

A plaque was in­stalled on the new kit in thanks to the char­ity for the do­na­tion.

The club hopes the equip­ment will im­prove its prospects for years to come, by at­tract­ing more play­ers to the new and im­proved fa­cil­i­ties.

The Char­ity of Thomas Bar­ton ex­ists to ben­e­fit the peo­ple of Stoke Gold­ing and has been in ex­is­tence for more than 600 years.
