VOLUNTEERS were joined by a former England cricketer to help spruce up a pavilion.

Fast bowler Dean Headley, who is also the Stamford Schools cricket professional, visited Burghley Park Cricket Club to help out in the national NatWest Cricketforce Weekend last Saturday.

Players and families gave up their day to ready the pitch and facilities on Barnack Road, Stamford for the upcoming season.

The volunteers were also joined by Kevin Clement from Huntingdon County Cricket Board as they prepared the square and outfield for the season opening friendly against Ufford Park on Sunday April 17.

Essential work took place on the pavilion guttering, and the building was given a substantial facelift inside and out.

Club captain Chris Meadows thanked everyone who turned up for their support.

He said: “Everyone played their part and helped make it worthwhile, the club is now looking fantastic.”

The club is holding an open evening on Thursday, from 5pm to 7pm. All aspiring players are welcome to come down and find out more about playing for the club.
