NatWest Cricket Force Saturday 6th April 2013

cricketforce#NatWest CricketForce Day here at Spofforth will take place Saturday 6th April commencing at 9.00am.  Whilst once again there are no major projects planned there will be plenty to do to get the ground and facillities into shape for the start of the season.  We hope that as many of you as possible will be able to spare an hour or two during the course of the day to help – players both senior and junior, junior parents and friends will be most welcome. 

You will be fed and watered throughout the day and your support will be greatly appreciated.  As last year we hope to have the support of staff and volunteers from NatWest to assist with the tasks.
