The Clitheroe branch of NatWest have donated £250 to Clitheroe Cricket Club following the voluntary efforts of those involved during the recent CricketForce weekend.

NatWest CricketForce took place at the end of March, with a record 2,276 clubs registering, as their facilities are rejuvenated and prepared ahead of the new season.

Entering its 14th year, tens of thousands of players, members and volunteers come together to help give back to clubs across England and Wales.

Clitheroe’s highly-acclaimed junior training starts this evening from 6 p.m.

This year the usual band of volunteers and certified coaches will be augmented by three current or former first-class cricketers, and performance level (EBC level 3) coaches.

The club will also have an open bar and barbeque on every Thursday.

For tonight’s junior sign up night, there will also be happy hour behind the bar from 7-8 p.m.

Clitheroe then host an open day on Saturday in their newly-renovated clubhouse, for the start of the Houldsworth Solicitors Ribblesdale Cricket League season.

Clitheroe host Baxenden in the first Senior League game of the season, starting at 1 p.m., and at 2 p.m., the club will be offering a free drink to all attendees, while food will be available courtesy of matchday caterer Gillian Coles.
