Cricket Is Just Round The Corner

In early March Syston Town’s groundsman Ken Cooper began his preparation for the new season. League matches start on Saturday 18th April and there is much to be done on the square and outfield before a ball can be bowled. The photograph shows Ken starting his pre-season rolling. Each year he spends untold hours on this most essential work before beginning wicket preparation.
Indoor nets finish on Wednesday 8th April following which practice will be held at the ground. Kwiks to Under 13s will train on Wednesdays 6.30pm to 8.00pm and Under 15s to seniors on Thursdays at similar times.
