Successful Indoor Cricket Open Day
The Soccer Factory in Rochdale opened its doors for the start of another indoor cricket season on Sunday 06 October.
Entering the venue’s second indoor cricket programme – the league opened its doors to teams and clubs from the area to come and try the facilities for free. The games were closely contested, in particular Super Six’s one run defeat of KRL. The day was a huge success with 8 teams from the region taking part.
The improved facilities at Soccer Factory will host the indoor league for a second season with the top teams from the competition being entered into the ECB National Indoor Knockout. All registered teams will take home free Lancashire tickets too!
The league, which is run by MCR ICL and affiliated to the Lancashire Cricket Board, offers regular match play for cricketers around the region, games take just 60 minutes to complete and are a great way to keep involved in the game over the winter.
Jasmine Titmuss, Adult Participation Officer for the LCB, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for people to continue to participate in cricket over the winter period to enhance their skills in a different format of the game. The Soccer Factory has undergone some major developments this summer making it a fantastic venue to host Indoor cricket in Greater Manchester. We hope to have another very successful winter with the competition, set exclusively for clubs, ensuring that the standard is of the highest calibre. As ever this is a very sociable game with lots of opportunity to progress into competitions and even a National ECB competition. I encourage clubs to sign up to this fantastic offer."
The league itself kicks off on Sunday 13th October and interested teams have until 6pm on Friday 11th October 2013 to register.
