We are pleased to announce that we have scored the highest marks for June as awarded by GMCL and pocketed 100 quid in the process, courtesy of Battersby Sports Ground Suppliers.
This month there were five clubs in close contention, namely Tottington St Johns CC, Prestwich CC, Elton CC, Bradshaw CC and we came out on top.
This is a reflection of the hard work put in by our grounds team (who are volunteers) spearheaded by Ian Holding and Phil Spencer. It’s also a reminder to all our members that we have a top ground, with the best vista and the best folk. Don’t take it for granted.
This year the GMCL introduced Grounds and Facilities Standards. If the standards cannot be achieved this could affect promotion and relegation places so there is lots of ongoing work to do therefore even if you can only give one hour per week or a couple per month then we would appreciate any time you can give, this could be anything from sweeping up, emptying bins, cutting the banks, painting things, learning how to safely operate our machines.
