Donation has club covered
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.
