A big turn-out of players, supporters and helpers is expected to converge on Prestatyn’s Beach Close ground for this weekend’s annual Nat West Cricket Force weekend.
As well as the opportunity for all players to complete their registration for the forthcoming season, essential work on preparing the ground and pavilion ahead of the new season, starting with a League Cup curtain-raiser at home to ECB Premier League heavyweights Colwyn Bay on April 14, will keep participants occupied on both Saturday and Sunday.
Senior outdoor training has already kicked-in this week and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 8-30pm while an hour-long junior ‘taster’ session for 5 to 15 year olds is lined up for April 13 commencing at 6-30pm, followed by regular junior training every Friday from 6-30 to 8pm.
Club officials are awaiting confirmation that popular 28 years old South African all-rounder Warren Groeneweld has been given clearance to both play and coach at Prestatyn after his initial groundwork last year.
“If all the paperwork goes through alright then Warren will be available for every game, apart from the Welsh Cup, for the entire season which will be great,” confirmed Chairman Mike Williams.
