PRE-SEASON preparations are well underway at Farley Cricket Club.

The club is having indoor nets at the Tollgate Cricket Centre every Wednesday from 7pm to 8.30pm and new members are welcome.

As well as a full summer of Hampshire League fixtures, including a number of local derbies for both the club's first and second team, the club has a busy friendly programme.

"With plenty of cricket planned, we're keen to attract both regular and occasional players of all abilities and experience," said club secretary Paul Roberts.

Farley is also planning its NatWest Cricket Force day on Sunday, at Coronation Field from 10am.

"We'll be getting the ground ready for the summer," Roberts explains. "It's a beautiful setting, and we were very proud that last year it was ranked the best ground in Regional Division 3 West."

Anyone interested in helping out is invited to come along - potential players or otherwise.
