Celebrity cricketer Tom Scriven visits West Ilsley Cricket Club to open new net facility
West Ilsley Cricket Club celebrated the opening of a new net facility on its Catmore Road premises, in an event staged alongside an intergenerational charity match.
The under-17s (U17s) took on a team of West Ilsley old boys in a fixture that raised £720 for Dementia UK.
The new nets were opened by Hampshire cricketer Tom Scriven, who trained with the West Ilsley club as a youth player.
Club chairman Andy Brown said: "Our U17s are Berkshire champions, and put the old boys in their place, but we want everyone to enjoy the facilities at the club.
"The new nets are just a part of a plan to modernise in the coming year.
"We have a great community in the village and the cricket club plays a major role in that both in a sporting and social sense."
