Village club with an eye on anniversary
WITH a year to go until its 125th anniversary, there is already talk about celebrations and fundraising at Great Alne Cricket Club.
A dazzling new pavilion stands proud overlooking the playing field and a cricket net could further bolster the village side’s facilities if skipper Tom Alder has his way.
Around £25,000 was raised by players and volunteers to help fund building work that saw the former run-down facility replaced with one offering smart new changing rooms, a kitchen and bar. Showers were added last year.
