League keen to recruit new teams

THE Greene King Suffolk Premier League is keen to recruit new teams for the 2012 season and is writing to all those clubs in the county who have Sunday sides, but do not play in a Saturday league.

Secretary Chris Watson stresses that the SPL can provide “cricket played in a good spirit and without too much travelling.”

The intention is to expand the current seven-team league into two divisions so that teams new to competitive cricket can find an appropriate level.

Rob Jones, cricket operations manager of Suffolk Cricket, said: “Suffolk Cricket are in the process of actively looking at what associations, leagues, clubs and players want from across all aspects of recreational cricket.

“This includes consideration of the format of cricket on offer and also travel considerations. To assist with this process Suffolk Cricket will be seeking feedback via a simple questionnaire that will be issued shortly.

“Personally I want to try to ensure Suffolk Cricket meets the demands and requirements of our customers but we need to establish what they are first.”

Any clubs interested should contact Watson on 01728 628782.
