Work has begun on the square in readiness for the start of the 2016 season. A bitterly cold day and hailstone didn’t stop our Groundsman getting on the ground over the weekend! Great effort David!
Fingers crossed for a dry spell as we leave winter behind and head in to Spring!
Finally, we’ve added a link to the Club Store where you can buy TCC branded hoodies, polo shirts, training kit and cricket wear. The Senior playing kit proudly sports the logo of our Principal Senior Sponsor D&D Landscaping Building Contractors.
Tintwistle Cricket Club are pleased to announce the appointment of a Groundsman to maintain the square. After a successful advertising campaign, David Lees has been appointed to the role. We’re tremendously pleased David has chosen to join us and warmly welcome him to the team. David has a wealth of ground maintenance experience and is a great addition.
David will work closely with Kez Davies, our outfield curator and we look forward to a wonderful summer of cricket at the SCG.
