Bungay Cricket Club is gearing up for an exciting 2009 season with a new league, improved ground facilities, a new electronic scoreboard, as well as the continual growth of its junior cricket section.

On the field, the club's first team have been admitted into the Norfolk Cricket Alliance and will start their campaign by visiting Acle.

This is a great reward, not only for the cricket club, but also for the BDSA, who have raised the bar in terms of the facilities at the ground and a first-class pitch.

As a result of the restructure, the club's second team have been promoted to division three of the Norfolk League and will play a number of high profile clubs as Norfolk cricket begins its new adventure.

Off the field, the club's committee has been working tirelessly behind the scenes over the winter months and has secured funding worth over £10,000 towards ongoing projects, including the installation of lightweight, mobile pitch covers and a brand new electronic scoreboard.

The funds have also been used to purchase up-to-date coaching equipment, including a new bowling machine and agility equipment.

All this brings exciting times for the club, especially the junior section, who have been entered into under-9s, 10s 11s and 13s age group matches.

The club has recently completed four weeks' successful indoor training sessions and plan to run a further 10 weeks of junior indoor training sessions starting on Tuesday, February 3.

Bungay club captain and first team coach David Fuller said: “We are excited to be involved in the Norfolk Alliance restructure.

“It really shows the improvement we are making, with our highest league finish last season and the planned improvement of the ground.”

Senior nets will also start on February 3 at Hobart High School in Loddon from 7-8pm. All current and prospective new players are welcome.
