After a hugely successful 2014, Barley Village Cricket Club is looking expectantly ahead to the summer and what 2015 might bring.
With indoor nets getting underway this Sunday, February 8, the village team is encouraging people to dust off their pads, dig out their cricket bat from the back of the shed or indeed pick one up for the very first time.
Barley, made up of enthusiastic locals varying in age from 14 to 70, and covering all abilities, stormed to victory last season, winning both their leagues.
The cup team also shone, reaching the final of the Cambridgeshire Cricket Association Invitation Cup.
In addition, the friendly Sunday side saw experience and youth come together, enjoying some competitivegames against other local sides.

“With an Ashes summer to look forward to, it is a great time to join your local village side.”
