Cricket latest news

Ainsdale Cricket Club are looking forward to an improved season in 2020 after a slightly disappointing 2019 campaign. A new committee has hit the ground running and aim to re-energise the whole section with ground improvements and events throughout the coming year. We have a new First Team Captain in Martyn Farrell and a new 3rd Team Captain in Ken Wright, Dave Newcombe will continue in leading the 2nd Team. The club has engaged Pakistani 1st Class cricketer Umaid Asif as its overseas professional and much is expected of the 6ft 5in fast bowler. The section have recruited Stuart Naden from Chorley CC and welcome back Joel Barlow after a brief hiatus at Hightown CC. We have lost the services of Joe White due to work re-location and his undoubted talents will be much missed. A big emphasis is being placed this season on invigorating the junior section and hopefully increasing the numbers of local boys & girls enjoying the summer game. All in all a very positive start to the year and hopefully a very successful year both on and off the pitch.
