Upgrades to Finley Cricket Club's facilities, including new nets, are under way.June 4, 2014 2:45am
Despite being in the cold off-season, the Finley Cricket Club is hard at work on a new project.
The club is well on the way to finalising plans for a new state of the art training facility to complement the new community building at the Finley Apex Sports and Community Centre.
‘‘The cricket club felt that our current facilities were terribly out dated and beyond repair,’’ project leader Matt Whitty said.
‘‘We wanted to replace them with something to match the new building.
‘‘This is not a five or 10 year plan and we expect the new facilities to last well into the next generation of budding cricketers.’’
The project recently got a huge boost with the Finley Community Help Group (Finley Second Hand Shop) donating $5000 towards the project.
Group chair Barry Dawe says the cricket club’s project is an excellent initiative.
‘‘We can see what the cricket club’s vision is and we hope this will get the project off on the right foot,’’ Dawe said.
The cricket club is in the process of finalising plans and layout, with completion of the project to be well before the start of the 2014/2015 season.
