CRICKET: Free trip to Headingley on offer for county groundsmen


A free trip to Headingley beckons for members of the Lincolnshire Cricket Groundsmen’s Association.

The Association is providing free transport from Lincoln to the Yorkshire stadium on Monday (March 27) to meet award-winning head groundsman Andy Foggerty and to learn about his pre-season preparations. Members will then visit the rugby ground next door to speak to Ryan Golding.

Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival and, after a free buffet lunch, there will be the opportunity to ask Andy questions before departure at around 3pm.

The transport leaves Lincoln Lindum at approximately 9.15am. Alternatively, members can use their own transport and meet at Headingley.

The trip is free to fully paid up members of the CGA but is also a good opportunity for those not directly involved in ground preparation – such as club coaches, chairmen and players – to view what is required at the highest level.

Anyone interested in the visit should contact Martin Deans at martindeans@btinternet.com or call 07971 087891.
