Towns Cricket Club has made a plea for more players, with registration numbers in a steady decline.

The club’s registration day will be held tomorrow at 4pm and president Peter Baker is urging people to get involved.

“We encourage people to come down and give cricket a go,” he said.

“We cater for all abilities and even if you feel cricket is beyond you, we’d love to see new faces come down and watch on Saturday afternoons during the season.

“We are having a friendly club game tomorrow at our registration day, so if you do fancy giving cricket a go this year, it will be a great taster session and a chance to get to know everyone.”

Mr Baker said overall participation numbers had been on the way down in country sport.

“We would love to keep community sports going as they bring communities together,” he said.

He said cricket was a great way to get involved in the community for both kids and seniors.

The registration day will consist of a parents v kids match and a sausage sizzle at 4pm, followed by a seniors’ inter-club match and open bar at 6pm.
