Waiting game for Cleck’ both on and off-the-field

The Cricket Section has two further top name players in their sights for the new season but it may be the New Year before either or both players give an answer.

There is no ‘skulduggery’ on the players’ parts the delayed decisions are for genuine reasons – so it may be January before an additional newcomer is announced.

In addition, the Sports Club is seeking an experienced Bar Manager and the in-depth information below is a graphic description of what the Club has to offer as a whole and the important role that hopefully will be filled in the coming weeks.

The appointment is of great importance to all of the Club's three Sections, Cricket, Rugby and Bowls. Below is a statement from the Sports Club on the role. In the meantime, Cleck's cricketers and members had a fabulous evening out at Akbar's Restaurant on Thursday evening with around 20 cricket minded lads enjoying a curry and a laugh!

There were many smiling faces at Akbar's with a pre-season 'get-together'
