Rain stops play …

THE season for Carsons and Mangotsfield Cricket Club has got off to a slow start, with four of the first five games cancelled due to poor weather.

The weather meant players have been unable to start using outdoor nets, but the club will run two adult sessions per week, one with former Gloucestershire professional Damian Forder.

The club is also running the national All Stars programme for children aged 5-8: search for the club on the All Stars website if you have a child who is interested in having a go at cricket.

We also have spaces in our Under-9 age group.

The club is also looking to develop their links with local businesses through match-day sponsorship.
