Monkseaton Cricket Club seeking new members

MONKSEATON Cricket Club is looking for new members to help give the 2013 season a boost.

The club, which already has around 50 members, is looking to recruit players aged 14 or over.

The drive coincides with the club’s winter coaching sessions which will be held at Tynemouth College on Hawkeys Lane, every Monday, from February 18.

The nets, which have four lanes, will run from 8pm to 9pm.

Club secretary Tony Errington said: “Obviously it would be great to attract strong players. However, we would also be keen to attract inexperienced or younger players wanting to break into the game.

“We have a first, second and third team who play on Saturdays, so we are able to accommodate all standards. We also have a midweek side.”

Anyone interested can also visit or find the club on Facebook.
